We are delighted to announce that there will be an extra touch of skill and steel for our special charity football match on Saturday 14 May.
Jeremy Lynch, a world-renowned football freestyler, has showcased his silky skills for a national TV audience in the past by appearing on Britain’s Got Talent and scoring for England in a Soccer Aid match.
Together with friend Billy Wingrove, he runs F2 Freestylers Ultimate Soccer Skills Channel on YouTube, which has tens of millions of followers across all social media platforms.
As well as Jeremy, there will be a host of Dons heroes from the past joining us and we can reveal that Chris Perry, still revered for his performances in blue and yellow back in the 1990s, has now signed up to add his defensive steel!
James Mulley, a hero from our 2011 promotion-winning season, has also confirmed that he will be playing, along with ITV Racing presenter Oli Bell.
Held in support of the Time for a Change appeal for St George’s Hospital, the following players and personalities are now confirmed:
- Seb Brown
- Jeremy Lynch
- Jon Main
- Jake Leberl
- Kennedy Adjei
- Elliott Godfrey
- Mickey Haswell
- Dannie Bulman
- Chris Perry
- James Mulley
- Oli Bell
We will confirm more Dons legends soon, so keep an eye on our website for more details.
The match at the Cherry Red Records Stadium will be hosted before a gala dinner, which will launch the Time for a Change appeal for St George’s.
With St George’s in Tooting being our local hospital, a lot of our supporters will have benefited from the tireless work of its staff, so it’s a real source of pride that we are hosting this event.
The match will kick-off at 2.00 pm on 14 May with the following ticket prices: Adults £10, Under-18s £4.

The event will help raise the £5 million needed to create a better St George’s Hospital for children and staff.
Amerjit Chohan, Chief Executive of St George’s Hospital Charity, said: “We want to help reduce the stress of a hospital stay for our patients and their families through improved children’s wards. We also want to make sure that that we can treat every child who needs us by helping to increase the space available on our Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). The care at St George’s is incredible, but our facilities are not, and it is time for a change.
“Our thanks to AFC Wimbledon and supporters for making us their chosen charity and for agreeing to help us with our first major appeal. Now, it’s time for you to sign up, whether it’s to donate, to fundraise or to get others involved. We can’t do this without your help.”
