The club’s new Admiral kits will be launched on Sunday, 29 June and we continue the countdown with a number that brought back memories of a remarkable unbeaten run for AFC Wimbledon.

22 – (22 FEBRUARY 2003)

However, it would be their last defeat for 78 matches – setting a new record for senior football in the United Kingdom - until they went down by an identical scoreline at Cray Wanderers in December 2004. By this time they had gone unbeaten in the league throughout 2003/04 and had been promoted to the Ryman League with Dave Anderson (pictured centre above) as manager.
