Footballers of all ages attended AFC Wimbledon’s match against Oldham on Saturday to celebrate the work of the club’s Foundation.

As part of AFC Wimbledon Foundation Day, pupils from Cleves School were presented with the South of England Kids Cup at half-time after going through to the National Final to represent AFC Wimbledon at the Division One Play Off Final.

AFC Wimbledon Foundation Director Philip Rudling said: “Saturday was a great way to raise awareness and interest in the work of the Foundation among the fanbase and the local community.

“It’s been a fantastic year to date with progress being made in developing the range and diversity of Foundation projects, including expanding our schools projects across Merton and Wandsworth and social inclusion work in East Merton.

“We’re also delighted that our girls and women’s programme was short-listed at the recent London Football Awards for Community Project of the Year.”

Pupils from the Foundation’s schools programmes acted as flag bearers at the game, welcoming AFC Wimbledon players onto the pitch.

As part of the celebration, The Foundation also welcomed participants from school programmes, Wimbledon Park Development Centre and disability programmes.

A bucket collection on the day raised £1,000 which was donated to the foundation.
