  1. Can I just say the Workington fans were superb and I’m really glad for them that their long trip was worth it. Wimbledon were truely awful and it would have been an injustice had we sneaked it 2-1, the two late goals must have made the journey back home all the more sweet for them. Obviously Im still devastated the Dons are out, but thinking about it now I couldn’t have chosen a nicer team to lose to! Good luck to them against Stevenage in the next round and heres hoping for another shock. And who knows? Perhaps their next trip to London might be a certain stadium in North West London…

    I am gutted that we (AFC) lost at the weekend but, being honest, can’t say that we were unlucky. Workington’s second goal certainly had the element of good fortune about it but it really was no more than they deserved on the day. They really wanted it that bit more.
    I do have to say though that it was a truly awful performance by The Dons which I hoped not to see too soon again! Alas I was wrong on that count too as the Surrey Cup game played on Monday Night(1st feb) at Tooting and Mitcham FC was every bit as bad. It was abandoned on 72 minutes because of a frozen pitch and will be replayed next Tuesday but I don’t intend to be there. The whole thing was a farce from no tickets being issued (so no refunds!) to poor refereeing to allow the game to go ahead in the first place and indeed Mr Degnarin’s decision making got progressively worse from there.
    Good luck to you, Workington AFC! If you show the same spirit against Stevenage that you did against us you can start booking your hotel rooms for the final!
