Former Derby County full-back signs for Dons U-23s

Kyron Stabana signs on the dotted line

30 August 2018

Alan Reeves has boosted his Under-23 development squad by snapping up former Derby County right-back Kyron Stabana.

The 20-year-old’s impressive four-week trial spell here has earned an opportunity to reignite a career that promised so much when Kyron was capped at England Under-17 level.

Kyron signed a professional deal with Derby back in 2016, but left there in May and he has gained first-team experience during loan spells with Boston United and Tamworth.

Alan Reeves said: “Toby has moved up to the first-team now and we had a second-year scholar who we quite liked, but he got quite a bad knee injury so there was space in the right-back position for the Under-23s. We went out there and had a look, but we got offered Kyron on trial about a month ago and he has trained really well since coming here.

“He has got a really good pedigree, but he needs to get himself a bit fitter as he didn’t have a full pre-season. The fitness will come and Kyron has a little bit of everything: he is quick, good on the ball, athletic, and he has a good leap. There are always things to learn as a young footballer, but he is one of those who is a keen learner. He has always got a smile on his face, he looks forward to training, and he is receptive to the coaching staff. The ball is in his court and if Kyron keeps progressing and putting in good performances he should have a future.”

A Wimbledon hero from the past recommended Kyron to Alan Reeves and you can find out who by watching Kyron’s first interview since joining the Dons. Click on the link below to watch it.
