Talented keeper Aaron Ramsdale feels he’s at exactly the right club at this stage of his career and he’s determined to reward our supporters with more clean sheets.
“I think it’s exceeded my expectations,” said Aaron. "George Long spoke highly of the club when I joined. I’ve fitted in well with the lads. They took me in straight away and they are a great bunch.
Aaron, who joined us on loan from Bournemuoth in January, has kept two clean sheets out of the last three away league games, as he shut out Walsall and Shrewsbury, on the road to helping Wimbledon to four vital points.
“I feel like I’m in a rhythm,” said Aaron. “I’m in a good place at the moment. I’m playing week in, week out, and it’s always nice to get clean sheets, especially away from home. It would be even nicer to get one at home for the fans. That’s the aim. It’s not always easy to get them though. If we ended up winning 4-3, like we did at Rochdale, I’ll take that, because the most important thing is the three points.”
“I’m a Wimbledon player and I want to help the club and help the team to get us out of the position we’re in. On a personal note, the reason I came here is that it’s a stepping stone for future seasons and it’s a great place to be at this time in my career.
“I connected with the fans when I was on loan at Chesterfield last year. When I go into somewhere, I go into it whole-heartedly. I’m not going in just because I’m a loan player. I’m the keeper at the end of the day and the last line of defence. When I came in I knew I was going to be whole-hearted in my approach and I connected with the fans straight away.
“They’ve been brilliant and they didn’t stop singing on Saturday at Shrewsbury. Although we paid for the supporters’ coaches they still had to turn up. They are a great set of fans and we just need to give them something back really.”
