An 8th-successive highest finish in AFC Wimbledon history saw the club looking in really good shape to prepare for a 3rd year in the Premier League.
AFC Wimbledon defied all the odds to survive relatively comfortably in their first-ever season in the Premier League. However, now things were about to get much more difficult, especially considering a dire conclusion to the 2027/28 campaign.
The streets of southwest London were filled with jubilant AFC Wimbledon fans as Trebor Mahtal, Ricky-Jade Jones and co led their exciting young side into the promised land in May 2027.
Our unlikely ascent to the big-time of the Premier League from League One in 2021 has been absolutely reliant on developing, promoting and - probably most importantly - selling youth products.
AFC Wimbledon came within 1 point of the Championship playoffs in 2025/26 led by the star strikeforce of Daniel Jebbison and Jamie Donley. However, it looked like neither would be allowed to return, leaving Trebor Mahtal with a big headache in the summer of 2026.
The aggressive Crazy Gang style of play finally saw AFC Wimbledon earn their stripes as the dirtiest team in England in 2024. We racked up a record for indiscipline in the Championship while again consolidating in mid-table and amassed 50% more bookings than any other team in the country.
The Crazy Gang performed well above expectations to comfortably survive in the EFL Championship at the first time of asking. And we were slowly building an exciting young squad.
Wimbledon were promoted to the second-tier of English football for the first time. Now manager Trebor Mahtal faced a tough task to strengthen the squad for a bid at Championship survival on the thinnest of shoestrings.
AFC Wimbledon defied all expectations as the new generation of the infamous Crazy Gang reached the League One playoffs in their first season under new manager Trebor Mahtal.
