Kwesi targets more of the same after his end of season return

Striker 'gutted' that season is over after returning to fitness

18 May 2018

Kwesi Appiah ended 2017/18 by playing a part in AFC Wimbledon's ultimately successful battle to stay up and he's aiming to play more of a pivotal role next season.

The striker hit the back of the net on the final day against Bury after an injury-ravaged first season back with the Dons.

"I'm a little bit gutted that the season has ended because I had just got back into the frame," said Kwesi. "It was important for us to get the results we needed at the end of the season. I was grateful to be a part of it and to get back for the final games. Next season we need to take forward that momentum. The last seven games have been mentioned by the gaffer and the staff because we were unbeaten. That's the kind of form we should have seen more frequently throughout the season, which we didn't quite manage to do. Next season we need to build some consistency and put a good run of games together."

Kwesi is first looking forward to officially launching his From Us To Africa charity later this summer at an event that will immediately follow the launch of the new AFC Wimbledon kit at Centre Court Shopping Centre.

"This summer is really busy as we've got the launch event for the charity on 1 July," added Kwesi. "I am looking forward to that and getting busy with pushing the charity forward."
