Our Chief Executive talks about emotional return and plenty more

8 October 2020

With the club edging closer to that first match back at Plough Lane, Iain McNay caught up for a chat with a man who has played a key role in getting us back there - our Chief Executive Joe Palmer.

In an interview for Cherry Red TV, Dons Vice President Iain talked to Joe about a range of interesting subjects, including the following:

  • Joe's upbringing, including working on his parents' fruit farm near Cambridge
  • His passion for football, including having trials as a teenager with Royston Town!
  • Time spent living in the South Pacific, dealing in black pearls!
  • Setting up his own sports marketing consultancy business
  • Working at Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine during a Civil War, and managing to boost ticket sales!
  • Moving back to Plough Lane, thanks to the 'incredible motivation' by our supporters
  • The 'huge challenge' of getting the new stadium built during very difficult times

Take a look at Iain's full interview below.
