Life’s Good: AFC Wimbledon’s 2nd Award
AFC Wimbledon might be bottom of League One at time of writing, but if you look at current form, the dons sit 3rd after a revitalised run of results.
Either way, life is good for the club, or at least it is for them in the eyes of LG (which stands for Life’s Good), because they have awarded AFC Wimbledon the ‘Performance of the week trophy’ following their win against Doncaster Rovers at the Cherry Red Records stadium.
At face value, you might not be that impressed with the LG award, but that view might change slightly when considering the panel of judges associated with the decision.
Sir Alex Ferguson, Howard Wilkinson and Dave ‘Harry’ Bassett to name but 3, all arrived at the decision to award the trophy to the club.
The award received on behalf of the club by team manager, Wally Downes, marks the second time Downes has won the award since taking charge of the Dons, and shows how much the club’s on-field fortunes have changed in such a short time.
From being virtually written off as relegated in December, they now stand level on points with Bradford City at the bottom of the league, however, as aforementioned, Wimbledon’s upturn of form has set up an exciting end of the season.
So in what can be mostly be considered a disappointing season for The Dons, could life be looking on the up?
