Academy hosts Palace and Brentford this Saturday
Supporters have an opportunity to watch potential Dons stars of the future at the Cherry Red Records Stadium on Saturday.
The AFC Wimbledon Academy will be hosting matches against Crystal Palace and Brentford, culminating in an exciting game under the lights for Mark Robinson’s Under-18s against the Bees.
All fans are welcome to attend free of charge for a full day of football that starts at 9.00 am and concludes with the Under-18s (kick-off 7.30 pm).
For those Dons supporters not heading up to Accrington Stanley to follow the first-team, it offers a rare chance to watch Wimbledon’s young players in match action at the club (our picture above shows the Under-18s in a group huddle before taking on Colchester United in the FA Youth Cup earlier this season).
Academy Head of Coaching Mark Robinson said: “It’s a great opportunity for fans to come along and watch the club’s potential stars of the future. Our younger age groups will be playing against an academy from a Premier League club and the day will conclude with the Under-18s aiming to extend their unbeaten run against Brentford. The boys will be excited to play at the ground and it would be great if we could get a good turnout to support our teams.”
The Under-9s up to Under-16s will face teams from Crystal Palace on Saturday with the Under-18s taking on Brentford.
Below is the full schedule of matches:
Under-9s, Under-10s & Under-11s (9.00 am start)
