Wimbledon originated as 'Wimbledon Old Centrals' in 1889. The football club had taken its name from the Old Central School, which was located on Wimbledon Common. The club was briefly named Wimbledon Borough before becoming known as Wimbledon in 1911.
The Dons spent many years as a successful amateur side before joining Division Four in 1977. The team began to make a name for itself in the cups, beating formidable clubs of the time, such as Nottingham Forest. Wimbledon then stunned the football world by racing from the Fourth Division to the top flight in just a five year period. Nicknamed 'The Crazy Gang', Wimbledon beat Liverpool to win the FA Cup in 1988. This would be the only major trophy that the Dons would win, as financial trouble and relocation led to the club disbanding on 21st July, 2004.
Our Personalised Calendars feature twelve reproduced Wimbledon match reports on a selection of the club's best ever performances. Starting from the month of your choice, this is a great gift idea for any fan of the Dons and a wonderful memento of Wimbledon.
These Personalised Calendars begin with Wimbledon's famous FA Cup run of 1975. The Dons were still a non-league team at the time and they had created a stir in the opening round by beating a top flight side, Burnley. Wimbledon was handed a daunting draw in the fourth round. Leeds United were the defending First Division Champions and therefore expected to win the tie easily. However, the Dons stunned the nation by holding United to a 0-0 draw, forcing a replay back at Plough Lane.
Wimbledon became famous for upsetting big teams in cup competitions and our A3 Calendars feature a selection of these exciting ties. In the 1980s, the Dons beat Nottingham Forest in two consecutive seasons. Forest were a strong team at the time and had been competing for the Division One title. However, Wimbledon beat them in the second round of the League Cup in 1983 and in the fourth round of the FA Cup in 1985. In 1988, the Dons enjoyed arguably their finest ever moment by beating Liverpool in the FA Cup final. This was the club's first (and only) major trophy and our Calendar Gift includes two special match reports on the historical final. Cup success continued for the Dons in the next season, as they defeated Manchester United 2-1 in the third round of the League Cup. The Red Devils were beaten by Wimbledon again in the 1997 FA Cup. On this occasion, Wimbledon would go on to reach the semi-finals.
In addition to cup victories, our Personalised Calendars also incorporate some fantastic league fixtures. In 1986, Wimbledon beat Huddersfield Town 1-0 on the last day of the season to secure third place in the Second Division and therefore promotion to the top flight. The Dons stayed in the top division for fourteen years and the Calendar includes some of the club's best league performances from this era. In 1989, Wimbledon beat Chelsea 2-5 at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea were beaten by the Dons again in 1996, as were Sheffield Wednesday. In 1997, the Dons beat Arsenal 0-1 at Highbury.
Each Wimbledon Football Calendar contains the following reproduced newspaper reports:
We have an exciting selection of alternative football gifts that are designed especially for fans of the Dons.
