Blackpool brings back good memories for Joe

Wimbledon striker opened his account against Saturday's opponents

15 November 2019

Saturday’s opponents Blackpool will bring back good memories for our striker Joe Pigott, as he bids to build on his goal scoring form.

Joe made a dream start to life with The Dons, coming on as a second-half substitute against the Tangerines at the Cherry Red Records Stadium on January 20, 2018 and he scored the second goal in a 2-0 victory. That was just five days after he joined us from Maidstone United.

Since then he’s added some impressive goals to his career tally at Wimbledon, with a powerful header against Premier League West Ham in the Carabao Cup last season among them. There was also a splendid strike at home to Sunderland and an unforgettable effort against Bristol Rovers!

Joe’s latest goal came only last weekend, as he headed home a pin-point cross from right-back Luke O’Neill. You can be at Bloomfield Road on Saturday to see if he adds to his total this season - see our previous article regarding coach travel and tickets.

We’ve put together ten of the best from “Pigs” along with how he stays so sharp in front of goal at our New Malden training ground.  Check out the video below, via the link to our official YouTube channel.
