AFC Wimbledon boss Wally Downes wasn’t chased by Milton Keynes fans


Wally Downes has played down an incident after AFC Wimbledon’s match at Milton Keynes on Saturday which saw some home fans confront him as he left the stadium.

The Dons boss did not travel on the team coach and was confronted by supporters as he walked to his car.

Police were quickly on the scene.

“I’d like to thank the Buckinghamshire constabulary for making sure those fans were safe with me,” said Downes.

“There were a few fans shouting a little bit and I had to walk to my car. It was something and absolutely nothing.

“It was a few silly sorts and I’m big enough and ugly enough not to worry about that.

“They didn’t chase me [as had been reported in one national newspaper] – because I wouldn’t have run!”
