Ghanaian teenager Kwaku Frimpong is pleased after netting his maiden goal for Wimbledon at senior level.
Frimpong, 19, was promoted to the “Dons” senior team last season but could not make any appearance because of injuries.
The budding midfielder is very fit now and scored the winner on Tuesday as his side defeated Crawley Town 3-2 in the league cup.
“I’m grateful to have got the goal,” said Kwaku. “It sealed the win, even though I got one for them late on! But that happens. Most importantly, I’m happy with the victory.”
“We said in the changing room that we needed to come out in the second-half with energy, but we didn’t do that. However, we made a few substitutions, switched back on and got the win. That was needed. Now the boys need to push on and get more wins and get us up the league table.
“It’s good experience for me to be playing first team football in this competition, getting involved and boosting my fitness. I haven’t played 90 minutes for ages, so it’s good to do that and I’m just happy with how it turned out. Towards the end I was feeling tired, but I’m grateful for the opportunity and to get myself on the scoresheet.”
“Last season had a lot of ups and downs, but this season I’m just trying to get games under my belt, push forward, be a better player and hopefully I can come back and help Wimbledon.” He added.
Frimpong spent last month (August) on loan at Dartford to get his confidence back after the series of injuries before being called back to the Wimbledon team.
