You Must Be Woking!

Couldn’t resist it. Sorry.

So as you’ve probably worked out by now, that final pre-season fixture has now been nailed down, and its a trip to everyone’s favourite Wembley alternative, Kingfield Stadium. (Aside – I really loved all those unnamed Dons fans who wanted the London Senior Cup final switched there… we’ve created a wonderful football club here but we ain’t going to pass many geography exams…).

It turns out this isn’t your usual ker-ching game either. Dedicated to ex-Don Phil Ledger, all proceeds are going to the Woking Hospice, which kind of makes me look a wally for suggesting football clubs are out for all they can get when PSF’s are arranged. And for all the childish jibes in the past (I used to watch Kingstonian when the Dons were away as a kid… blame them…), I’m actually pretty pleased we have a reasonably local trip against strong opposition.  As I said yesterday, this seasons pre-season schedule is, with the possible exception of our first season since reformation, the best pre-season I can remember. Yet I bet there are still people moaning about the Kingstonian game they were never going to go to anyway…

So that’s pre-season sorted, now we have the long drawn out chase of picking up the best quality young talent for the lowest price…
