DTB MEMBER HANNAH KITCHER REFLECTS ON WHAT HAS BEEN A TESTING SEASON BOTH ON AND OFF THE PITCH 

The Dons Trust Board is made up of different people, with different skills, experience and ideas. But one thing all board members have in common, from 2002 to today, is that we are fans. We love it when things are going well, and when they aren’t it hurts. We’re all gutted with where we are in the league table. We’ve made mistakes..

KRIS STEWART OF THE DONS TRUST BOARD EXPLAINS HOW WE DO THINGS AROUND HERE

Unless you’ve been living off-grid, you might have noticed the Dons Trust Board getting some pretty severe criticism over recent weeks. And that’s fine, mostly. We’re your representatives and if you aren’t happy with what we’re doing, you have every right to let us know. As the top board, the DTB is ultimately responsible for everything that happens here. But that doesn’t mean that the DTB..

THE DONS TRUST BOARD’S GRAHAM STACEY SHARES SOME THOUGHTS FROM A WEEK ON SOCIAL MEDIA

With the business end of the season in sight, the DTB is putting every effort into supporting the club‘s fight to stay in League One. One of the most important things we can do is to keep out of the way and let the football professionals at the club concentrate on the football stuff.

But having spent a bit more time than advisable on..

DONS TRUST BOARD CO-CHAIR XAVIER WIGGINS SHARES AN UPDATE ON EVERYTHING FROM FINANCE TO CUP FINALS

There is a fair bit going on, right now. So, I wanted to give you a quick round up on some of the many things the DTB is involved with.

We have now banked well over £8m from the two bonds – a fantastic effort from investors and all those involved.

We recently broke through the £3m mark on Plough Lane Bond 2..

BOARD MEMBER NIALL COUPER CELEBRATES 20 YEARS OF THE DONS TRUST

“Take over 1,200 Wimbledon fans, add a liberal sprinkling of VIPs including MPs and members of Merton Council, guest speakers, a passionate MC, over 60 stewards, the FA Cup and a host of ex-players. Place in a theatre for three hours, and gently stir and infuse with emotion. What have you got? The launch of the Dons Trust on 10 February 2002.”

Those are the memories of Lou..

DTB MEMBER NIALL COUPER DISCUSSES THE POSSIBILITY OF THE CLUB BECOMING A B CORP.

Over the last 12 months, the Dons Trust has been developing an over arching strategy. And as part of that process the Trust asked its members how they would feel about the club becoming a B Corp.

It is a huge step for the club and if successful the club would become the first EFL club to become a B Corp.

B Corporation Certification is given..

DTB MEMBER NIALL COUPER HAS A CHALLENGE FOR EVERYONE ATTENDING TONIGHT’S GAME.

It’s Tuesday night, so it must be football night (again).

You know what, there’s not much that beats watching the Dons under the floodlights.

Anyway, as you sit here admiring the stadium we built together do turn your attention to what we can do next.

Basically, my friends it’s action time!

Get out your phones, there are three things I’m going to ask you to do right now…

DTB MEMBER LUKE MACKENZIE REFLECTS ON OLLIE PALMER’S DEPARTURE AND HIGHLIGHTS A FEW PROJECTS OFF THE PITCH.

The phrase ‘football is a game of opinions’ never rings more true when a transfer happens. I’m writing this on Monday, the day Ollie Palmer signed for Wrexham. I remember being excited when he signed, watching the boxing video to announce that he was coming in. He certainly had patches in his time with us where he looked unplayable. But he also had..

DTB MEMBER GRAHAM STACEY TAKES US BEHIND THE SCENES. WHAT DO WE ACTUALLY DO?

Since I joined the board, I’ve been asked a lot of questions. And I’ve always tried to answer them as openly as possible – it’s something I strongly believe that we, as a board, should try our best to do. But the most common question is what do we actually do? So I thought it might be vaguely interesting to give you an idea of how..

STRAT ATTACK

“If you don’t know where you are going, every road will get you nowhere” – Henry Kissinger.

After establishing a strategy review as a core priority of the Dons Trust Board early 2021, and after working group and stakeholder group meetings, surveys and general consultation we were able to deliver THE strategy for AFC Wimbledon at the AGM in December.

We had not looked at strategy since Dickie Guy was a lad, back in 2011, and this..
