AFC Wimbledon 10-year celebrations

9 July 2012

Simon signs up 13

Simon Bassey has a total of 13 Wimbledon heroes lined up for our 10-year anniversary exhibition match on Saturday, August 4.

Former Wimbledon full-back Ben Thatcher is among the players who have agreed to feature in the match alongside supporters, which will be held before AFC Wimbledon versus a West Ham XI. Jon Main has also pencilled himself in for Simon Bassey's testimonial celebrations after gaining permission from his club Welling United to play.

Supporters have the chance to play alongside Simon Bassey and Wimbledon heroes by bidding for one of 16 places in our online auction on the official website. Simon plans to use roll-on, roll-off substitutes, so that everyone gets a piece of the action. As well as featuring in the match, supporters get to keep the actual commemorative white strip that our players wore against Bristol Rovers in AFC Wimbledon's Football League debut.

Full list of players confirmed for exhibition match: Simon Bassey (pictured in his playing days), Keith Ward, Rob Ursell, Jon Main, Sean Daly, Joe Sheerin, Noel Frankum, Matt Everard, Steve Butler, Martin Randall, Ryan Gray, Andy Little, Ben Thatcher, Chris Gell.

Supporters can now visit the link on the home page of the official website to get involved in the bidding or go to the online auction site by clicking on
