AFC Wimbledon are back at home tomorrow after two weeks on the road, and we won’t be back in action for another fortnight after Saturday’s game against Gillingham.
The match is again set to mark the return of Wimbledon’s Promotion Play-off winning captain Barry Fuller (pictured). It’s one of only two opportunities to see The Dons at home before Christmas – so don’t miss out!
We’ll be delighted to welcome back our special guest – 1963 FA Amateur Cup winner Bobby Ardrey. We hope he enjoys his day with us.
It’s set to be another very busy match day at The Cherry Red Records Stadium and here’s your guide, if you’re thinking of spending your afternoon with The Dons!
Wimbledon fans can still take their place on the RyGas Stand terrace, with tickets for the Chemflow End and seats in the Paul Strank and John Green Stands having sold out.

Simply e-mail email@example.com with your name, contact details, the lot number of the item below and how much you want to bid.

As well as plenty of AFC Wimbledon and Wimbledon FC-related lots, there are also personally signed items from former F1 World Champion Jenson Button, cricket superstars Jofra Archer, Joe Root and Rory Burns, 2003 England Rugby World Cup winner Jason Robinson, plus the ever-popular Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters from the greatest day in England football history in 1966.
AFC Wimbledon Foundation is delighted to be working jointly with the Paul Strank Charitable Trust in launching the Annual Christmas Appeal, which is raising money to fund equipment for Shooting Star Children's Hospices and collecting toys for the Children's Wing at St George's Hospital.
The Foundation will also be organising a toy collection point before Saturday’s match at the side of the Dons Kiosk, from 1.00 – 2.45 pm and again before the Doncaster game on 14 December.
The AFC Wimbledon Foundation, as well as some first-team players, will be visiting St George's on 16 December to deliver the toys and gifts. Any toys donated after this point will be taken with us to Shooting Stars Children's Hospice, which we are visiting on 20 December, for the annual Christmas Party.
