Every phase of the football calendar is important, preparation is vital for the players to deliver the best on the pitch. This week sees us entering Rainbow Laces season, although as we know inclusion has no off-season.  Preparation for this on a matchday may look like the players wrestling with lacing up their boots with the iconic Rainbow Laces or our groundman replacing the corner flags to light up each corner of Plough Lane with a visible show of colour..

AFC Wimbledon is proud to be a fan-owned club, and the ultimate decision makers on many important issues are the people that Dons Trust members elect to the Dons Trust board.

About me: Michele Little, Dons Trust Board Member & Treasurer

Monday 10th October is World Mental Health Day. Mental health challenges affect us all and can be sparked by many different things – job changes, unexpected illness, financial strains, arguments, childhood memories etc.

No one is immune.

In January this year, as a newly elected Dons Trust Board member I received the news that no one wants to hear I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The photos of me here..

We often get asked what exactly does the Dons Trust Board do. It is really simple. We represent the majority owners of the club – the near 4,500-plus Dons Trust members. We also appoint directors of the club and operate the Trust itself.

We set the culture, mission and strategic direction of the club, in conjunction with members. It is the job of the club’s operational board, the PLC Board, to deliver them.

We represent the views of Dons..

Given our history, one of the Dons Trust’s long-term aims has always been to look to improve the wider ecosystem of football.

Over the last 18 months the Trust has been at the heart of a quiet revolution in the corridors of power. In February 2021, the Dons Trust helped set up Fair Game, with AFC Wimbledon as founder members. An organisation that, with the backing of the Trust Board, I’m proud to now be the CEO of.


Dons Trust Programme notes – Gillingham Cup 9/8/22

Does Equality, Diversity and Inclusion really matter? The fact that the question is even being asked is bewildering in this day and age, writes Dons Trust Board member Anne-Marie Godfrey.

As owners of the club, the Dons Trust has a unique role to play in the long-term stability of AFC Wimbledon. We cannot live in the dark ages with our heads buried in the sand. Our aim has to be to leave the club in a better state than..

Graham StaceyDons Trust Programme notes – Gillingham 30/7/22

You know what we did last summer?

The Dons Trust Board’s Graham Stacey takes a look at what has been happening behind the scenes over the summer break.

While the club has been keeping busy – new management, new players and all that fun stuff – I think it’s fair to say the DTB have been finding things to do over the summer, too.

Things kicked off back in June with a DTB ‘away day’. The branding was rubbish – it was held at..

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..

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..
