New kit for 2012/13
AFC Wimbledon supporters packed into the middle bar last night for a successful kit launch and meet the manager event.
After good sales for our new home and away kits, commercial director, Ivor Heller, brought Terry Brown's first summer signing, Curtis Osano, onto the stage to be introduced to supporters. Seb Brown, Frankie Merrifield and Callum McNaughton also spoke to supporters about their hopes for next season. Our new midfielder Louis Harris and Jason Prior then modelled the new home and away kits, before Terry Brown and Stuart Cash took to the stage. The Dons management team were then quizzed about everything from who will take Wimbledon's free-kicks next season to Terry's love of the diamond formation!
In what was a long and insightful question and answer session, Terry and Stuart answered every question thrown at them.
Ivor said: "You could not get a more honest manager than Terry and he tells it like it is when answering the questions from supporters. It was a really great turnout for the event and a good atmosphere. The volunteers for this club deserve so much credit for putting the event on. It is a special night for us and there are a lot of clubs that would love to be able to put on such an event."
Supporters have been urged to get their orders in soon as our merchandising team are already experiencing high demand to buy the new kits.
Tim Hillyer, coordinator of the merchandising team, said: "We are already running out of several sizes after an excellent response from supporters. We had a huge amount of orders online tonight and supporters should come in to see us during pre-season. A lot of supporters will wait until there is a match on though so we could be busy on Saturday before the Reading game. Nowadays, we invite our supporters to vote for the best kit designs. I must thank Marc Jones and Morgan O'Brien for designing the home and away kits respectively as both have been well received. Tonight is the culmination of all the hard work from the volunteers and everyone connected with the kit launch."
