Countdown: Wimbledon aim to build on special squad spirit

Forfeits and laughs as the smiles returned behind the scenes

10 June 2019

It’s just under ten days until we find out our schedule for the new League One season.

By the time we face our first game, set for Saturday, August 3, Wally's squad will be chomping at the bit to improve upon our incredible form in the second half of the last campaign.

Having been adrift and written off, The Dons staged the greatest escape to retain our status at Bradford on the final day. Key to our survival, along with the hard work and results, was the spirit among the squad.

The management and players kept spirits high, even in the face of adversity. Our cameras were there to capture it all, as we went behind-the-scenes with Wally''s squad for the run in.

As we count down the days to the first pre-season friendly, at home to Brentford on July 5, it's worth reflecting on how The Dons stayed up and put a smile back on all of our faces!

You can see just some of the laughs and outtakes in the three videos below, via the links to our official YouTube channel.

Here's what happened when Wally took the wheel and we hope it will be just as much fun as last time around!

Physio Stuart Douglas provided great insight from the treatment room, while the players came up with the laughs!

There were plenty of light-hearted moments around training and a few forfeits too!
