Praise for match day experience at AFC Wimbledon
Almost £11,000 was raised by Golden Goal ticket sales last season - and a winner from our last home game even donated his prize after being so impressed with the match day experience.
Colin Kreidewolf from Ipswich asked for his second prize to be donated to the club’s Stadium Fund and his letter showed how much he enjoyed his visit to the Cherry Red Records Stadium.
“Although I am an Ipswich Town fan, I attended the game in the hospitality area with my friend Alasdair Ross and his wife because we simply enjoy watching football,” Colin’s message said. “We were welcomed graciously and the hospitality was excellent. Thanks to your colleagues for a really enjoyable day."
That won £100 for John Woodruff. Golden Goal tickets were on sale at the semi-final against Accrington Stanley. For the second match running, the first goal was scored by a substitute so the time of the goal was irrelevant for Golden Goal purposes.
That was Colin Kreidewolf from Ipswich. Therefore, the £25 second prize went to the holder of the ticket for a 1-0 final score. For the fifth successive home match, there was only one goal in the game.
season's total raised by sales of Golden Goal tickets was £10,963. Last In all, £181,310 has been raised since sales began in August 2002. Golden Goal organiser, Roger Dennis, would like to thank his team of ticket sellers for their work during the season (the picture above shows Golden Goal sellers David and Daniel Wilson).
