Golden Boot Backfiles: Feel The Forss

Finn finisher in for part six

24 May 2024

The Dons really felt the Forss in the 2019/20 season, with a young Finnish striker lighting up the Kingsmeadow pitch.

Joining on loan from Brentford, Marcus Forss brought with him a livewire style of play that helped to enhance a squad that was looking to pick up some points after a slow start to the campaign.

What followed was 11 goals in 18 league games, including a memorable hat-trick away at Southend United as Marcus played with the freedom and confidence of a player far older than himself.

Sadly an injury cut short his spell early on, with the Finland international returning to his parent club in what was a blow for the striker and ourselves.

The 24-year-old has since achieved promotion to the Premier League with the Bees, taken in a spell with Hull City and now plies his trade for Middlesbrough in the Championship. To this day he is still highly regarded by Wimbledon fans who look back on his spell with us fondly.

Watch Marcus Forss’ league goals for the Dons – as he finished as our top goalscorer in 2019/20 – below!
