Pictures from the past and Wembley on Sunday

10 January 2018

On 10 January 2004, AFC Wimbledon drew 2-2 at Sandhurst Town with 1,037 spectators watching the Dons take another step towards winning the Combined Counties Premier League title.

Fast forward 14 years and everyone connected with the club is rightly proud of the latest instalment in our remarkable journey – doing battle with Premier League Tottenham Hotspur in front of 47,527 supporters at Wembley!

The gallery above includes a picture of Andy Sullivan, who scored in the game at Sandhurst Town, in match action during the early AFC Wimbledon days. Our first-team coach Simon Bassey also played in the Sandhurst game and earned the Man of the Match award, according to reports!

Of course, Sandhurst was also the venue for AFC Wimbledon's first league game after reformation on 17 August 2002, which ended in a 2-1 victory.

The picture gallery also features Matt Everard and Joe Sheerin holding aloft the Combined Counties Premier League title, plus plenty of images from Wembley on Sunday (pics by Matt Redman, Pro Sports Images).
