17. Shaun Cummings

(on loan from Chelsea)

Position: Defender

Date of Birth: 25/02/1989

Nationality: English

Previous clubs: Chelsea

A striker converted to a wide midfielder or full-back, Shaun was the first player to move to Milton Keynes as part of a link that would develop between the Dons and Chelsea following Roberto Di Matteo's appointment as manager.

Shaun's early form was quite promising, especially considering he was often moved around positionally as the Dons took advantage of his versatility. Arguably his most impressive performance came, despite being right-footed, at left-back, as the Dons visited Cardiff in the Carling Cup.

Eventually Shaun pinned down a starting berth at right-back, but his form was patchy and despite the odd assured performance showing potential, all too often he looked like a player devoid of confidence, urgency and drive.

Shaun has shown that he is good enough in several performances for the club, and with height and pace he has the raw materials, but needs to find some consistency if he is to make a success of his fledgling football career.
