AFC Wimbledon

With summer in sight, these two Wimbledon players will surely be eyeing a fresh start

AFC Wimbledon have not got long to go until the end of the season, with just fourteen games left to secure their League One survival.

With a third of the season left, there is always reflection behind the scenes at clubs on how the season has panned out at this time of year, in addition to transfer planning for the summer window. That will be no different at the Dons.

There are bound to be players considering their futures at the club. That could be down to purely wanting another challenge in their career, or being frustrated at the lack of opportunities they have been given in the first-team.

It is safe to say that there are a couple of cases of this at Wimbledon, and here, we take a look at two Dons men who may be keen to find new pastures this summer…

Dylan Connolly

Connolly joined the Dons in January 2019 from League of Ireland side Dundalk, but it has not gone quite as planned for the winger.

Although the Irishman made a total of fourteen appearances for Wimbledon last term, including a start in their memorable FA Cup fourth win over West Ham United, most of his gametime was limited to cameo substitute appearances.

With Wimbledon opting to play with two wing-backs as opposed to out-and-out wide players, Connolly also had the same issue at the start of this season with regards to getting into the team.

That led the club and the player to agree to a season-long loan move to Bradford City, where he has played a total of 27 times this season.

However, it could be decision time once the 24-year-old returns to the Dons in the summer at the end of his spell. If he cannot get assurances about his role in the team, the Irishman may leave for a new challenge.

Adam Roscrow

Adam Roscrow’s switch to south-west London was one of the more surprising signings in the EFL last summer, as he joined AFC Wimbledon from Cardiff Metropolitan University FC for an undisclosed fee.

His 34 goals for Cardiff Met over the course of three seasons meant that the Dons took a gamble and gave the 25-year-old a chance in English football.

He decided to make the switch despite the Welsh side qualifying for the preliminary round of the Europa League last term.

However, his gametime at the Dons has been severely limited since his arrival.

In total, the Welshman has played a total of 98 minutes of league football, over just seven substitute appearances.

If his lack of opportunities continues, he may ask to leave the club in the summer.
