A message from former AFC Wimbledon manager
Neal Ardley said he’s in a much more relaxed frame of mind about handling the tension of the play-offs after taking advice from Terry Brown!
The last man to guide AFC Wimbledon to promotion five years ago got in touch after this season’s crop marched into the play-offs.
Speaking during an interview for Dons Player, Neal Ardley revealed: “Terry sent me a message and it said ‘try not to be like me because I was a nervous wreck for a month!’ It was great advice. I’ve tried to be relaxed and chilled and send that vibe to the players. Dave Anderson sent a message during the week and he was good fun last week when he was here. He’s always got a story and I love being in his company.
“They are both great supporters of the club. To know that they are there for you and behind you is wonderful. Hopefully with all of that and the fans being really positive and up for the two legs, it can get us over the line.”
Neal Ardley’s full interview is now on Dons Player and tomorrow we will feature an interview with Darius Charles, who experienced promotion through the play-offs with Stevenage five years ago.
