Dons surprise star guest

30 May 2013

Former England player attends end of season awards

AFC Wimbledon Ladies and Girls had an extra special guest for their end of season presentations with former England international Marieanne Spacey attending the event.

The annual awards night, held at the Cherry Red Records Stadium, ended on a high when AFC Wimbledon Girls Under-10s (pictured above after winning the Chelsea Cup recently) made their own presentation to Marieanne.

Club Secretary John Ivers said: “It was a fantastic evening with Marieanne presenting all the awards. At the end of the night all of our Under-10s girls signed an England ball and presented it to Marieanne, who said she may come back next year if she is available.”

Marieanne, who started her career at Friends of Fulham (the club which became Wimbledon Ladies FC), went onto enjoy success with Arsenal Ladies and gained 91 England international caps.

It was a highly successful end to 2012/13 for AFC Wimbledon Under-10s girls as they clinched more glory at the Molesey Tournament on Sunday, just a week after winning the Chelsea Cup. Goalkeeper Damaris Ott was presented with two awards for AFC Wimbledon Ladies after an excellent season between the sticks.
