Not many people know that the first laws of rugby were drawn up by the Chairman of Wimbledon RFC. Even fewer people know that next Saturday Wimbledon’s men in claret and blue are in a play off to reach National League 2 against Ding Crusaders. Kick off is at 3pm, and there is a fully stocked bar and some cracking rugby on display.

When: Sunday 30th April

Location: The Cherry Reds Record Stadium, KT1 3PB

AFC Wimbledon have risen mightily through the ranks and this will be their last home game of the season against Oldham. Ivor Heller, founder and Commercial Director spoke about the changes the club has seen:

“15 years of this club have gone by in the blink of an eye. We have gone from playing park football to now playing household names like Charlton Athletic and Millwall. To be returning to Plough Lane in the near future is the cherry on the top.”

So what are you doing next weekend? Heading to Barham Road to watch the Dons in the rugby on the Saturday, or grabbing a ticket to watch the Dons play Oldham on the Sunday? You could do both you know.
