Album captures spirit of AFC Wimbledon's rise
A new album of songs written and performed by AFC Wimbledon fans has been launched to commemorate the club’s remarkable yet short history.
The club built itself up from scratch 10 years ago after Wimbledon FC went into administration and was eventually sold and relocated to Milton Keynes.
Since then, AFC Wimbledon have embarked on a meteoric rise up the ranks of English football, culminating in winning promotion to the Football League in May 2011.
The album – This Is Our Time – has been released by the club’s sponsor Cherry Red Records. It includes the original version of We Are Wimbledon, recorded by the FA Cup winning Wimbledon team of 1988.
It also includes an interview with Niall Couper, author of This is Our Time – The Wimbledon Story.
A spokesman for Cherry Red said: “The club built itself up from scratch, breaking records and gaining promotion rapidly. It is an example of what can be achieved by supporters if they rally together and focus on a common aim.”
The Wimbledon Guardian has 12 albums up for grabs.
