DAVE Wager has named the following squad so far for tomorrow's reserve team match against Epsom and Ewell at home, kick-off 3pm at Hampton & Richmond's Beveree Stadium:

Matt Martin, Keith Ward, Tony Readings, Jamie Angell, Sam Elliott, Dave Towse, Lewis Taylor, Kerry Watts, Matt Hodge, Micky Fernandes, Joe Hill, Rob Hill, Andrew Trefry.

Two triallists who used to be at Tooting & Mitcham will also be involved.

Squad announced

TERRY Eames has named the following squad for tomorrow's top-of-the-table clash with Chipstead:

Lee Carroll, Steve Gibson, Danny Oakins, Matt Everard, Michael Harvey, Darren Dobinson, Simon Bassey, Andy Sullivan, Gavin Bolger, Seb Favata, Noel Frankum, Lee Sidwell, Ryan Gray, Kevin Cooper, Paul Scott, Joe Sheerin.

The game will be played at Whyteleafe's ground and kicks-off at 3pm. At 6.30pm the Dons Trust side will play Chipstead Vets at Chipstead's ground. Danny Oakins and Lee Sidwell will be the guest managers for the occasion and some well-known names should be turning out for the Trust team.

Terry thinks the two new additions will make an immediate impact.

"Lee Carroll is someone who I've been chasing for a while. He's played at a senior level and is a good addition to the squad. I'm sure he'll do well tomorrow.

"We're looking a bit short at the moment at left-back with suspensions looming, so when Harvey called me I said yes immediately. Dobo's done well there but we're struggling a bit defensively with suspensions for Bassey and Oakins coming up, so there'll be opportunities for Harvey to show us what he can do.

"I have to admit I'm not a fan of his music ? my daughters are though! We've had a lot of media interest today though and that's good, I'm happy with that as well. It's a bonus because there's been a lull in our publicity and it reminds people out there how much we've achieved so far already and how much we've got left to do in terms of raising money and getting established as a club.

"It should be a good game, a hard game, and a good day out with the extra game later as well. I'm looking forward to it and hope to see lots of people down there for a great atmosphere."

The reserve team squad is being confirmed and will follow shortly, as will details of the youth matches.

Get Up and Move

AFC Wimbledon's new signing attended training last night ? MC Harvey from So Solid Crew. The garage legend and platinum-selling artist is expected to make his debut in the yellow and blue against Chipstead on Saturday and has already joined thousands of football fans nationwide by purchasing shares in the Fans' Stadium ? Kingsmeadow.

The signing is no cheap publicity stunt. The rapper, real name Michael Harvey, is an experienced left-back who has been on the books of Chelsea, Barnet and Aldershot and who was playing this season for Ford United in the Ryman League Premier Division.

Club captain Joe Sheerin is responsible for giving Harvey the idea to phone Terry Eames, as he explained:

"I played at Kingsmeadow for Ford against Kingstonian last week. Joe was in the bar after getting treatment for an injury. I know him from our time at Chelsea as kids. He just gave me this look and said, 'Come on, Harve, just have a think about it and see what Terry says!' I couldn't stop thinking about it on the way home ? I nearly killed myself on the motorway. Then I phoned Terry Eames up to say I was interested in joining and he was keen as well, so I came down."

And Harvey explained that football was always his first love:

"I only got into music when I was out of football through injury at Slough. I left there about three years ago because of a dispute about money. I didn't want to leave but I'd been in football for a while and was disillusioned with it. Music had been fun and a hobby but suddenly it took off. Before I knew what was happening, we had a platinum-selling album and seven top 10s. I was doing a film with Stephen Seagal and performing at the Brits and the Mobos ? it was madness.

"Then I got back in training for the Games on Channel Four (Editor's note: He won). A guy from Ford came over and said, 'You should still be playing.' I wasn't so sure, but he made me go down and have a look. As soon as I got there, I got the itch to be playing again. The manager Craig Edwards said it would take me three or four weeks to get fit ? he didn't know I was training probably harder than I ever had before for the TV show! After one reserves game, that was it, I was in the first team."

He is very grateful to Ford for rekindling his love for the game:

"The lads there were quality but in the end the travelling was getting too much. My work needs me to be in London. And this club is the place you want to be. We'll get out of this league this year and get up to where the players are good enough to play. No disrespect to this league but the lads that are here already are good enough to play much higher. But we know we have to win this league first and then see where we can go. Even being in the top five at Ford, we'd already been told that we couldn't go up because of the ground. For me to take time out from my profession, I need to be at a club that's got ambitions and they don't get more aspirational than AFC Wimbledon."

The move is a reunion with some old friends:

"I've known Giggsy (Ryan Gray) since we were 13, I grew up with him. I've known Scotty (Paul Scott) for years. I played with Simon Bassey at Aldershot, I've played with Noel Frankum and I knew Joe and Quinny at Chelsea. I actually pulled on a Dons shirt for the friendly "Love Football" tournament over the summer. What you've done is basically bring a whole load of fruitcakes back together down here. I can't wait to get involved. Last week I was passing through Clapham Junction and I saw Paul Scott walking along looking at a picture of himself in the South London Press because he'd scored a goal."

He is confident he can juggle the demands on his time ? and his work plays second fiddle to his football:

"Terry Eames will tell me the dates he needs me. Saturdays are a given ? my management company doesn't take any bookings from nine til five. Training is booked out as well. Realistically, it's not that hard, it's certainly no harder than all the other lads with their jobs. There's no rule that says you can't be famous and play football.

"I've just started filming a new show on Sky One, called Premiership Pads. I go round to Premier League players' houses and take the mick out of them. So that's the day job ? by night I'm an AFC Wimbledon player. Oh, and I'm doing another film and I'm signed to a modeling agency at the moment. But I'm really looking forward to getting started on the pitch. People probably don't realize that football was my life from 11 to 20 ? I played at Chelsea as a kid, I played at the then biggest club in non-league football down at Aldershot and AFC Wimbledon may be in the Combined Counties League now but I know where you're going and I want to go there with you."

And no sooner had he joined than Harvey was putting his hand in his own pocket to buy shares in AFCW PLC, which owns the club and the stadium. Fan interest has so far raised 1.16m in the share issue towards purchasing The Fans Stadium ? Kingsmeadow as a home for AFC Wimbledon and Kingstonian and a base for national supporters' groups. Harvey immediately handed over the 90 minimum stake and hopes to purchase more in the future:

"I'm happy to get involved and buy shares: it's very important. This is grassroots, it's not someone with money coming in at the top, it's the fans building it for themselves. And it's about more than just Wimbledon. Anyone who can chip in is welcome to get involved. It's a Fans Stadium ? it's not just for Wimbledon, it's for Kingstonian as well and it's somewhere all football fans can be proud of. So let's see some more people buy them. And if the music and films go well, I'll be buying some more shares!"

Joe Sheerin is no doubt that the new signing takes his football seriously:

"I've known Harve for years. He is an excellent signing on the pitch. If he brings his own fan club with him, so be it, but we're not short of fans down here already ? I told him that! But he'll show people the quality he has as a player and we're looking forward to seeing what he can do. It might liven the stereo up for the post-match tunes as well ? I'm not sure how well he'll get on with the Billy Joel that tends to get played".

Eames adds to squad

TERRY Eames has today signed two more players to add to his squad. Ex-Chelsea trainee Lee Carroll has been added to the roster of goalkeepers at AFC Wimbledon after impressing the management in training. Lee was at Chelsea along with Joe Sheerin and Paul Quinn and has also played for Wokingham Town.

The second new signing for the Dons is Michael Harvey (left), better known as The So Solid Crew's MC Harvey. Left-back Harvey joins from Ryman Premier side Ford United and has previously been on the books of Fulham, Barnet and Aldershot. He is expected to be part of the squad to face Chipstead away this Saturday (match to be played at Whyteleafe FC).

    Weekend Round-Up

    THE reserves went down 1-0 on Saturday away to Walton & Hersham Reserves. With Ryan Luffman, Wade Falana and Keith Ward unavailable, and Tony Readings on the bench for the first team, a young side saw Paul Quinn as the elder statesman. Manager Dave Wager praised "a good performance from an inexperienced team".

    The Ladies' team defeated Hackney 5-1 in a London Cup match. The Dons easily triumphed against weak opposition, with three goals for Beth Sims, one for captain Maria Bertelli and one for debutante Judy Bygrave.

    John Harris made the following report from the treatment room:

    Sean Daly: Treatment ongoing. Sean appears to be making steady progress.
    Paul Quinn: Played 55 minutes for the reserves. Came off to avoid aggravating hamstring problem. Quinny will be undergoing specialised fitness training with AFC fitness coach Paul Braham.
    Gareth Graham: Ebullient Gareth is looking stronger and happier since being given the go-ahead from the consultant surgeon to step up his strength training.
    Michael Rootes: Resting after surgery on his knee.

    Anyone anxious for their next Dons football fix after Saturday's excitement should get themselves down to Hampton & Richmond's Beveree Stadium for the reserves' home team clash against Molesey Reserves tomorrow (Tuesday). Lee Sidwell, Noel Frankum, Simon Bassey, Keith Ward, Tony Readings and Ray Merry are all expected to be in the squad for the game, which has a 7.30 kickoff.

    Vase clash nears

    WITH Saturday's FA Vase game approaching, the replay date has been confirmed as next Wednesday. So should the First Round tie end in a draw in Kent, the replay would be played on Wednesday 22 October at The Fans' Stadium ? Kingsmeadow, with a 7.45pm kickoff.

    The squad trained last night and Neanderthal defender Matt Everard said that the mood was confident:

    "We haven't really talked about the game as such yet, we'll do that on Thursday night, but we did a lot of running and fitness and everyone is certainly up for the game. Saturday's game against Sandhurst did us a lot of good and knocked a bit of complacency out of us. We ground that out and it'll be a case of more of the same down there."

    Matt has more knowledge than most of the Kent League:

    "I've played against Kent sides a few times in the Vase and it tends to be tough. It'll be a tight game ? I don't think there'll be more than two or three goals all told. Ash beat Greenwich Borough the other week, who are just below Herne Bay in the table, and the lads there said it was a touch physical game on a ropey pitch. Herne Bay's pitch will be better, but it'll certainly be a difficult encounter. We're confident we can go there and win though."

    Tickets will be 6 for adults and 3 for concessions, pay on the day, although fans are advised to arrive early to prevent a last-minute rush.

    A couple of seats are still available on the supporters' coach ? phone the office today to book on 020 8547 3528.

    Suspensions announced

    SUSPENSIONS have been announced for the three Cup and two reserve dismissals the Dons have suffered so far this season. Following his two red cards, Danny Oakins will be banned from October 27 to November 16. Simon Bassey's dismissal at Pagham was termed violent conduct so he will be banned from October 27 to November 30. Ben Chesters will serve a 35 day ban over the same period for his dismissal in the reserve team fixture against Chertsey. Noel Frankum's dismissal in the same game will see him on the sidelines from October 27 to November 2.

    And Terry Eames has confirmed that Leon White has been released by the club. The striker failed to report for training and following a chat with the manager, both parties decided it was better for him to move on.

    Rootes out but Ginge on way back

    CLUB sports therapist John Harris has confirmed press reports that Michael Rootes has been ruled out for the rest of the season. He explained:

    "Michael came on as a sub at Withdean and scored, but complained afterwards that his knee didn't feel right. Doc Wheeler had a look at it and we sent him for an MRI scan. That revealed a torn cruciate ligament. He saw the consultant last Wednesday and was taken straight in for an operation."

    The ex-Tooting man will be out for nine months, meaning he won't feature until pre-season training for next season.

    "Michael is a Wimbledon player, he will be staying part of this club and we will do everything we can to assist his rehabilitation and help him get back fit and playing."

    Meanwhile, Harris admits excessive optimism from the medical team over Sean Daly's return:

    "Damage like he suffered can take up to three months to heal, so a realistic estimate now is another three or four weeks. He was getting frustrated by suggested deadlines coming and going but we're confident he'll back in that timescale."

    There is better news for Gareth "Ginge" Graham, continuing his long term rehabilitation. He met his consultant surgeon Martin Bircher yesterday and has been advised that he can step up his training. He will spend the next four weeks on strength training before progressing to ball-work in game situations. He will be back to see the surgeon in early-January and this will hopefully be to get the all-clear, two months ahead of initial expectations.

    Contrary to some press reports, Ryan Gray's injury suffered against Merstham did not result in damage to his kidney. He suffered bruising to his iliac crest, on the pelvic bone. That's on the lower back just above the backside in laymen's terms. The bruising had subsided sufficiently for him to be declared fit on Saturday morning and he came through the game will no ill-effects.

    Finally, Paul Quinn was able to train on Saturday and is regaining mobility. Harris hopes to see him get a run-out for the reserves this weekend, but the final decision will rest with the player himself and Terry.

    There are no further injury worries in the squad as they train for Saturday's historic FA Vase First Round clash at Herne Bay.

    Striking news

    THE Dons won 7-0 at Kingsmeadow last night in a one-sided encounter with goals from Sheerin (3), Everard (2), Oakins and Cooper.

    Following the game Terry Eames revealed that Ally Russell is joining Carshalton on what is effectively a loan deal for the rest of the season:

    "They called up and asked for him to go down there and I agreed. It's a good move for him. He's going straight into their first team and he'll get experience down there. It's all part of his development. We have a lot of strikers here so this will benefit us as well."

    Owing to CCL rules, Ally has had to leave his AFC Wimbledon contract to sign for Carshalton but Eames expects the striker to return.

    "It's till the end of the season but he'll be back here after that. We wish him all the best up there and we're sure he'll keep in touch."

    Russell himself was excited about the move:

    "I need to be playing first-team football to develop and with the way Joe and Coops are playing here, that's not going to happen. But I hope to come back, if you'll have me. I'll still be in touch with all of the lads and I'll come down still when I can. I'd like to thank the fans for all the support they've given me so far here."

    Meanwhile, Eames confirmed that Leon White appears to have severed his links with the club.

    "He's incommunicado. I've tried to call him four or five times and he's made himself unavailable. If he wants to get in touch, we'll have a chat but until that point he's made himself unavailable as far as I am concerned."
