Music star puts AFC Wimbledon first

Marcus Mumford believes the Dons will reach the top-flight again

10 December 2018

Dons supporter Marcus Mumford passed the ultimate test of his allegiance to AFC Wimbledon in front of the national TV cameras!

Marcus, who has supported Wimbledon since he was a child, was asked on the Fantasy Premier League Show the following question by presenter Kelly Somers: would you rather see AFC Wimbledon in the Premier League or have a number one album?

That prompted a swift response on the Sky Sports programme from Marcus, who said: "AFC Wimbledon in the Premier League would be, for that community, for that club. I believe it's going to happen, but I believe it might take a little longer than we expected it to."

Marcus went on to recount a story of how Winston Marshall, his band mate in Mumford & Sons, bought him a vintage Vinnie Jones Wimbledon shirt, from the days when Elonex sponsored the Dons. Take a look at the clip below to listen to Marcus talking about his favourite club.
