At the seaside with AFC Wimbledon

Well over 1,000 Dons made the trip to the Priory stadium and gave good support to their side despite the eventual 1-0 defeat. AFC Wimbledon did look sharper after the introduction of late substitutes Luke Moore and Sam Hatton, but were less well-organised than a resolute Eastbourne Borough throughout the game. It’s going to be a tough season for a team which has enjoyed a remarkable rise through the pyramid since formation, but this club’s story has plenty of twists and turns left.

There’s great atmosphere amongst the Dons’ support, and I was made to feel a very welcome guest, so thanks to Jim, Toby, Big John, Tommy and Barrie – and to Karen for the fizzy fish.
