Ramble Meets... Marcus Mumford

Andy Brassell is joined by another of AFC Wimbledon's devoted fans for today's Ramble Meets... episode as he welcomes Mumford & Sons' lead singer, Marcus Mumford!


From supporting Manchester United at school until his friends forced his allegiances elsewhere, Marcus has loved football his whole life. He joins us to discuss his relationship to his hometown club, from wondering whether he could play for The Dons when they held trials on Wimbledon Common to cheering on from his car as they beat Luton Town and returned to the Football League in 2011.


He also tells us the story behind his recently released cover of 'You'll Never Walk Alone', with all proceeds from the song going to War Child and the Grenfell Foundation, and his work setting up War Child FC which uses football as a support mechanism for children living in places ravaged by conflict.
