New signing Terell Thomas learned about his new club after spending time with an AFC Wimbledon hero and he believes the move will bring the best out of him.
“I knew a bit about the history of the club when I was at Sutton with their goalie coach Seb Brown,” said Terell, in an extensive, eight-minute interview with our premium iFollow Dons channel, which can be viewed by clicking on the link above.
“Sometimes he talked about it,” said Terell with a smile on his face.”I say sometimes, but a lot of the time he mentioned it!
“It’s a great story of how Wimbledon came up from the situation the club was in, with people getting behind it, to having been in League One two seasons now. I think it’s fantastic and the story is still being written, that’s why I thought I’d like to be here to keep it going with the club. I could see the club had ambition and is moving back to Plough Lane, which is good and that excites me.”
Neal Ardley made a big impression on the 22-year-old centre-back and the manager’s attention to detail was a decisive factor in Terell’s choice to join Wimbledon.
“The gaffer told me about my own game in our meeting," added Terrel. "It made me feel like he’d looked into me and knows the type of player I am. He told me about the areas of my game that I could work on, how I’m going to work with the coaches and that made me feel good."
