AFCW v MK at Kingsmeadow

AFCW v MK at Kingsmeadow

A huge day in the history of AFC Wimbledon. A goal in additional time saw MK Dongs aka Franchise overcome the Real Dons and advance to the FA Cup 3rd round. But the Wimbledon players & supporters were the real stars. Full marks to whoever ordered the aerial bombardment #wearewimbledon sign! There was a great atmosphere at Kingsmeadow where several hundred Dons supporters watched the match on tv.

The bar trade helped to bring in revenue as did the Club shop. I am glad I went there to follow the match and not to MK some 60 miles away. A moral victory for AFC Wimbledon. Two coincidences: as I write I am waiting for a bus at London Victoria coach station to take me back to Belfast via Cairnryan and the first stop is Milton Keynes. A five minutes stop there for a cup of tea was plenty!

Secondly I was picked up this morning to head to Belfast City airport by a taxi driver whose relative works for MK DONS!! #wearewimbledon
