Cup game this Saturday with no Carlisle league match
Wimbledon has a rich pedigree in the London Senior Cup and this Saturday the Dons will be bidding to take another step towards success in this competition.
London Bari visit on Saturday (3.00 pm kick-off) in a second round tie at the Cherry Red Records Stadium, a match that was organised for a spare weekend with scheduled league opponents Carlisle still in the FA Cup.
Wimbledon have won the London Senior Cup six times, the first time in 1931 and the most recent coming in 2014 against Metropolitan Police. The Dons also won the competition in 1934, 1962, 1975 and 1977.
Success at Imber Court in 2014 came 12 years after the London FA provided vital support in helping to get AFC Wimbledon up and running as a phoenix club. In the summer of 2002 the London FA offered guidance to help AFC Wimbledon secure senior status, something that had to be achieved in time for the club to participate in the Combined Counties League in 2002/03.
The Dons earned a 3-1 win at Thamesmead Town to reach the second round of this season’s competition with a squad consisting of players from Alan Reeves’ development squad.
Wimbledon have since moved to the top of the Final Third Development League South Division and Saturday offers a chance to watch the likes of Ryan Sweeney and Tom Beere aiming to stake a claim for the first-team.
Saturday's match will be the first time that AFC Wimbledon has faced London Bari, a club that plays its home games at the Old Spotted Dog Stadium, which is based at Forest Gate in the London borough of Newham.
