Classic Dons away days on 14 April

Two years since that memorable away win at Walsall

14 April 2020

Past matches on 14 April have been very kind to AFC Wimbledon and two years ago came an away day that is rightly revered by Dons supporters.

With a 2-0 half-time deficit at Walsall, Wimbledon appeared to be heading back to League 2, before a second-half goals blitz changed everything. Joe Pigott followed up Lyle Taylor's saved penalty to reduce the arrears, before Taylor struck the equaliser, and Dean Parrett converted an injury-time spot-kick to earn a dramatic 3-2 win.

The victory also had added significance as it was our annual Volunteers' Away Day and Parrett's last-gasp winner signalled a Dons party in The Midlands. It also led to one of John Green's entertaining vlogs - our famous American friend posting his own unique take on "The Walsall Event."

Delving further back into the archives, Wimbledon also achieved a vital away result on 14 April 2012. Sammy Moore struck a fine goal at Crawley Town, as Terry Brown's men secured a 1-1 draw that ensured League 2 safety in our first season back in the Football League. There was a Wimbledon victory for different reasons back in 2007. Richard Jolly struck the only goal in a win at Folkestone Invicta that kept alive hopes of promotion in the Ryman League Premier Division.

Take a look below at highlights and celebrations from the win at Walsall, plus John Green's vlog on the victory. A picture below also shows Sammy Moore striking that important goal at Crawley.
