Club in the community on Sunday
Neal Ardley talked about bouncing back from Saturday’s Bristol Rovers defeat and a possible Plough Lane return during a Q & A with supporters in Wimbledon town centre yesterday.
As part of the club’s presence at Winter Wonderland, an event that marked the start of the Christmas season in Wimbledon, the Dons were well represented with players, fans, club officials and management present.

Speaking about turning around his side’s form after that setback at The Memorial Stadium, Neal said: “We have a great set of lads who care about having a good season. They care about trying to achieve something at this club so it was a very low place in the dressing room at Bristol at 5.00 pm on Saturday. We have a two-week break now so that we can prepare well for our next game against Mansfield. We need to have a reality check and get to 54 points as quickly as we can. If we can do that with a few games to go then we will see if we can have success.”
Neal also gave his views on a potential move to a new stadium in Plough Lane and he said it would be “a phenomenal” reward for all the hard work put in by supporters over the years.
Wimbledon players and management signed autographs for fans in the town centre before moving onto The Terrace restaurant in Centre Court for lunch.
A group of Wimbledon supporters were spreading the word about their Bring The Dons Home campaign at the same venue.
