"Proud" debutant George urges Dons to learn from draw

New midfielder frustrated not to deliver three points for the fans

18 August 2021

George Marsh was disappointed he and his Wimbledon teammates couldn’t give our fans all three points from last night’s draw with Gillingham, but remained pleased to have made his full debut for the Dons.

“I was proud to make my debut tonight,” said George. “I think the boys that came in did really well. It didn’t look like we’d made too many changes and I thought we’d played quite well.

“It was gutting, the way we conceded that at the end. We knew what they were going to be about and it’s just frustrating how we conceded. In this league we can’t afford to make mistakes like that.”

The former Tottenham Hotspur youngster caught the eye in the middle, alongside captain Alex Woodyard, as one of seven changes Head Coach Mark Robinson made from Saturday’s historic opener at Plough Lane against Bolton Wanderers.

Midfielder George saw plenty of encouraging signs from the majority of our play against the Kent club and was impressed with Ollie Palmer’s late opening goal, as Wimbledon maintained an unbeaten start to the season. However, he stressed the importance of learning from our mistakes, as Gillingham came away with a point following an equaliser deep into time added on.
