An extra special Dons matchday

Pictures from a proud weekend for Wimbledon

20 January 2020

We've put together a picture gallery from an AFC Wimbledon matchday that was memorable in more ways than one.

Boxing Champion Lerrone Richards joined us as Guest of Honour, meeting the players pre-match, before showing off his belts to the crowd at half-time. Lerrone certainly turned out to be a lucky charm and we look forward to his return in the future, maybe with a world title belt! 

It was also a very important day for our new stadium funding with the Plough Lane Bond scheme launched at the game. Supporters were given information about it before the match and a Q&A was held in the Your Golf Travel Bar after the game. There's already been a fantastic response to this with the Plough Lane Bond having hit the £500k mark! Visit the Plough Lane Bond website for more information.

Fans from both Wimbledon and Peterborough showed support on Saturday for the Kick It Out campaign, as part of our Day of Action. Both sets of supporters held up banners with the important message and players wore Kick It Out T-shirts in the pre-match warm-up. The two teams were also welcomed onto the pitch with banners held up by players from our Foundation's Education and Football programme.  

Of course, a vital victory for Wimbledon against Peterborough, thanks to Joe Pigott's goal, rounded off a memorable Dons match day. Take a look above at the gallery of images.
