Match Of The Midweek: St Albans City 0-0 AFC Wimbledon

The stutter, then, is becoming a full-blown wobble. A couple of weeks ago, it looked as if the championship race in the Blue Square South was all but over, but AFC Wimbledon have now drawn their last three matches, scoring just one goal in that time, and have away matches against second placed Hampton &…

Match Of The Week: Havant & Waterlooville 0-0 AFC Wimbledon

Quite a lot has changed since the last time we looked at the top of the Blue Square South on here. Two months ago, it looked as if Chelmsford City were going to walk away with the championship, but their form has collapsed while AFC Wimbledon went on a run of thirteen wins from fourteen…

In Praise Of… “The Beautiful Game? Searching For The Soul Of Football”, by David Conn

In November 2001, I (as was my wont at the time) made the short journey from my flat in the centre of St Albans to Clarence Park to watch The Saints play Basingstoke Town in the Ryman League Premier Division. It was an uninspiring match – a flattering 3-1 win – but more concerning was…

When The Lights Went Out

AFC Wimbledon supporters will already be aware of the occasionally intransigent ways of the Ryman League. A couple of seasons ago, when an administrative error meant that one of their players was incorrectly registered with the Football Association of Wales rather than the FA, they were docked fifteen points until an independent committee stepped in…

Match Of The Week – AFC Wimbledon 1-4 Wycombe Wanderers

In the end, it was all a step too far. AFC Wimbledon were outdone last night by a Wycombe side that was that little bit fitter, taller and better organised than they were. No-one can have any complaints about the result. To say that this was the only thing that mattered last night, however, would…
