England

Brought up in Epsom and with big family ties to the club – his grandfather Tony Wright played for Wimbledon – Ollie made his Dons debut as a late substitute in the 1-0 win versus Blackpool.

That came after Ollie had shown his powers of recovery by putting a groin operation behind him, the towering striker having not played since February.

After starting his career at Woking, Ollie made the switch in 2011 to Havant & Waterlooville and his superb goalscoring form earned a chance in league football with Mansfield. Since leaving the Stags, Ollie has had spells with Grimsby Town, Leyton Orient, Luton Town and Lincoln City, but it was his most recent form at Crawley Town that really caught the eye. A total of 30 goals in 76 appearances followed for the Sussex club, prompting the Dons to make a move for his signature.

Ollie recovered from a hip operation with a strong finish to his first season with Wimbledon, netting vital goals in our successful push to stay in League One after the Dons had been bottom of the pile in March.
