ON THIS DAY – 2008. We finally won promotion from the Ryman Premier at the third attempt, beating Staines Town in the division’s play-off final. With 80 minutes played and Staines 1-0 ahead, an “innocuous” challenge on their keeper went unpunished, and Luis Cumbers pounced to equalise. Two minutes later, Marc de Bolla’s hit free kick found the back of the net and the Dons has won it, with fans flooding the field to hoist captain Jason Goodliffe onto their shoulders. A larger climb was back on the agenda.
