Just 2 days to go: your favourite away days

Sandhurst and Accrington feature highly on your list

3 August 2017

It's now just two days until AFC Wimbledon's second season in League One gets underway and we've been asking you on social media for your favourite away games since the club reformed.

The responses flooded in after we asked the following question via our official Twitter account:

It's a trip to @SUFCOfficial this Saturday, but what has been your best #AFCW away league game since the club reformed? #DonsGreatAwayDays. We also asked the same question on Facebook.

Below are your responses and above is a selection of pictures from those memorable away days.


@nevilinski - Apart from Stanley in play-off semi-final, 4-1 at Cambridge was good. Azeeez.

@SparkyInTheUK - Game 1 at Sandhurst. The beginning...

@9yrspodcast - Listeners to the podcast will know that Charlton away last season was the best away day ever.

@DomLAFCW - Crawley away 2015/2016 and Charlton away last year.

@danielhuckfield - I'm with @nevilinski on Stanley in play offs. Also scunny last year was a good one.

@HayDonMeadow - Sandhurst because that's when all the dreams and effort became real. We had a team to follow and WOW how good was that dream.

@CallumDenore - 4-3 at Accrington, great goals from Dannie and Lyle, and Neal shook all our hands at the end of the game.

@PaoloTramezzani - Gillingham 4-3, having been 2-0 and 3-1 down, 3 goals in the last 15 mins, an OG and a double for Midson (1 pen) in front of the Dons fans.

@EssexWomble - Sandhurst August 2002.

@JackChesterman - Notts County away in the promotion season, comfortable as we have ever been since being back in the league.

@Paulpostie99 - Hartley Witney away. Free bus to the ground from the station completely blotto on the way back we won I think?

@littledanw - My seven-year-old voted for Curzon Ashton. And I agree (Editor's note - we did say league games, but we will allow this one as it was such a memorable fightback!)


Paul O'Brien - Surely the win away to Plymouth when akinfenwa 'egg-headed' it in, sending that end mental. Or if it counts, accy away in play-off. Anyways, looking forward to it, got my ticket and megabus travel. Bring on Scunthorpe!

Anne-Marie Godfrey - Sandhurst was my first ever match at the age of 11. Instantly hooked and by far the most comfortable seating at an away match I can recall - on the hay!

Ian Murphy - The 3-1 win at Bromley on a cold (and soaking wet) Tuesday evening. Best I've ever seen a Dons team play.

Ray Armfield - The first one at Sandhurst Town.

Mick Palmer - I agree - Sandhurst Town.

Mark Everard - First away game back in the league at Dagenham and Redbridge. Fans in superb voice for the whole match and Rashid Yussuff scored an absolute worldie from 30yards.

David Balchin - Accrington Stanley second leg in Play-Off semi-final. After being 1-0 up from the first leg, it was soon wiped out as we went 2-0 down on the night and 2-1 on aggregate. I was just starting to think our Wembley dream was over when the Beast took the game by the scruff of the neck and got us back in it. Then to our sheer delight, Lyle Taylor Baby smashed the ball into the net to make it 2-2 on the night and give us a 3-2 lead on aggregate. If holding on to that lead didn't add to the drama and tension, the floodlight failure certainly did. At the full time whistle, the relief and celebrations that lasted the whole night, were a joy. It was well worth getting back to Kingsmeadow at 4.30 am just in time to see the sunrise. We all know what happened at Wembley.

Jill Stratton - Oh, tough call, but I think our play-off final at the City of Manchester stadium for me. That feeling when the winning penalty went in and we got back into the league will take some beating!

Anthony Vosper - I live close to Exeter. So any fixture is an away game. But for me a pre-season friendly. Away to Dorchester Town. Many moons ago. Great fans and if I recall, a 3-2 victory. You just knew the club was back. As they say, the rest is history.

Michael Lonergan - Herne Bay or Fleetwood 1st leg of play-offs.

Tom Forbes - Winning the CCL at Walton. I cried!

Libby Cavin - Accrington at home in play-off semi-final first leg, says Hamish Elliott.

Steve Johns - Winning 4-3 away to Gillingham. We were 3-1 down and looked out of it. That sticks in my mind as a great away win.

Justin Gower - Accrington away in the play-off semi-final 2nd leg.

David Kenwery - Last season 2-1 at Scunthorpe. Forty minutes of Neal Ardley's Yellow and Blue Army.

Nicki Ferrier-Kisby – Play-off final at Staines. Wasn't the best game, but for me it's my most memorable.

Ray Evans - Swindon Town last season. Atmosphere was amazing. Didn't stop laughing at all. The noise and racket in the bar at half-time!

Billy Scott - Gillingham 2-2. While celebrating, fell down a chair, but also gave us another chance to stay up on the final day.

Nikki Sinclaire - I loved the 2-1 win at the Valley last season.

Jake Horton - Dunstable away in the FA Cup.

Eugene Robson – Milton Keynes away in JPT.

Kevin Borras – Top three: Sandhurst 2002, Accrington 2016, Charlton 2016.

Warren Hethersay - Etihad Stadium and getting into the Football League

Alexander Eli McLeod - Bognor Regis.

David Mullaney - Winning 5-2 at Forest Green back in 2009.

Josh Benham - My first and only against Portsmouth two seasons ago.
