Landmark screening typifies One Club feel

Watch “Walking Down the Haydons Road”

17 May 2022

Wimbledon in Sporting History (WiSH) played a huge role in making our first ever Family Fun Day a roaring success on Sunday 15 May as thousands flocked to the Cherry Red Records Stadium.

One of the main highlights of what was an eventful day for everyone associated with the club was the highly anticipated premiere of the emotional “Walking Down the Haydons Road” film in the stadium’s huge main hospitality lounge.

Some 250 people watched this moving story of Wimbledon’s football club told powerfully through the memories of its fans, some having watched their first games in the old Plough Lane stadium some 70 years ago. Those who made and took part in the film took part in a Q and A session with the audience after the one-hour screening, rounding off a truly memorable afternoon.

John Lynch, Head of Partnerships for WiSH said:

“Amazing feedback all round , it's being screened across Wandsworth & Merton over next few weeks and a further edit will be made for it to go on national TV for an hour slot with adverts.”
