This Is Our Time - Songs To Celebrate The AFC Wimbledon Story
25 September 2012
Cherry Red Records are very excited to announce our new digital download album released to celebrate the story of AFC Wimbledon, featuring brand new compositions & recordings written & recorded by fans of the South London football club. The story of AFC Wimbledon is far more than a simple football tale.
It is a story of romance and hard work, mostly by those forgotten heroes of modern football – the fans, who, when the club they loved was torn away from them, rolled up their sleeves and refused to lie down. After the sale of Wimbledon FC to Milton Keynes, an unprecedented scenario in English football, the club reformed under a new name and entered the lower leagues.
With no stadium, no players, no money, no manager, no staff and no kit, the fans were all that remained, and the club became a supporter run business.
"This Is Our Time” is a fifteen track compilation of brand new football songs to celebrate the club's story written & recorded by its fans. It is released to coincide with the book of the same title by Niall Couper who tells the story of the nine year journey which took AFC Wimbledon from the depths of non-league football back to the professional Football League, demonstrating in the process that football is, at its heart, about much more than television money and overpaid superstars.
