The game between Brentford and AFC Wimbledon yesterday was not only the start of our build-up matches ahead of our first-ever Premier League season, it was a special day for Marcus Gayle. Marcus was at the game, which The Bees won 1-0, commentating on our live stream. It brought the two clubs he is best known for representing together.
Marcus is a Club Ambassador, having played more than 200 games for The Bees. He also spent a long part of his career with the now-defunct Wimbledon FC and worked for AFC Wimbledon as a coach after ending his career playing for The Wombles. AFC Wimbledon have moved back to Plough Lane, their spiritual home, and Marcus paid a first visit yesterday.
He spoke to the AFC Wimbledon YouTube channel about the game and both clubs. The interview was conducted before the game and can be seen below. Thanks to AFC Wimbledon for the footage.
