‘One of the proudest moments of my life’ – Lyle Taylor shares AFC Wimbledon throwback post

Lyle Taylor scored 22 goals in the 2015/16 League Two season to help AFC Wimbledon to play-off glory.

The Charlton man also scored in the semi-finals and the opener in the final of the 2016 League Two play-off final, sending Wimbledon into the third tier of English football.

It was a memorable day for both Taylor and for Wimbledon who made their first step into League One after their 2002 formation, and Taylor took to Instagram to share this throwback post of the day:

This time of year brings about some of the best football. It’s the time when the play-offs happen and we find out which teams can go all the way and clinch promotion into the next league.

With the season yet to finish though, Taylor and Charlton still have nine games to play but this time round, Taylor isn’t fighting for promotion.

Where did Aaron Ramsdale start his playing career?

His Charlton side have struggled this season, largely due to his injury in the first-half of the campaign. But he’s since come back into the side and it’s given Lee Bowyer a fighting chance of keeping Charlton in the Championship.

Wimbledon are also in a similar position in League One. They currently sit 20th with just three points separating them from the drop zone, and they could yet return to League Two when the season resumes.

The verdict

Taylor has proved a hit at the majority of clubs he’s been to, and it’s looking more and more likely that he’ll have a new one come the summer.

His Charlton contract is yet to be finalised and with plenty of clubs circling the striker, expect to see him with a new suitor this time next year.
