MK-born winger Brandon Thomas-Asante featured for League 2 side Salford City as they won the delayed 2020 EFL Trophy final against Portsmouth.

The 22-year-old featured for the whole match and extra time on Saturday (13/03) at Wembley Stadium, with the Salford City attacker coming close with a couple of efforts over the course of the game.

Thomas-Asante would ultimately score during the penalty shoot-out as Salford defeated their League One opposition 4-2 on penalties at Wembley Stadium, with the League 2 side scoring with all 4 of their attempts.

Salford City won the 2020 edition of the tournament, which saw them face Pompey in a final postponed from April 2020 in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and taking place 342 days later than originally scheduled.

This edition of the final took part on a finals weekend for the EFL Trophy, with the 2020-21 edition’s grand final played earlier today (14/03) as Sunderland defeated Tranmere Rovers.

Thomas-Asante featured for MK Dons after graduating from the club’s academy. He made 35 appearances in all competitions for the Dons, before leaving in 2019. He joined Salford after a brief spell at Ebbsfleet United, scoring 7 times in all in his 2 seasons at the club.
