AFC Wimbledon have announced that their first pre-season friendly will be against Fulham on July 9th.

The AFC website says:

The Fulham game will be against a squad comprising first team players and some reserves/squad players, as Fulham are also involved in the Europa Cup in the same week.

Fulham began their pre-season preparations with a friendly against AFC Wimbledon two years ago just a couple of days before their first European fixture. Is that a good omen?

The Dons, newly-promoted from the Conference, will be a good test for Martin Jol’s fringe players.
