THE Dons will have 50,001 reasons to celebrate if they win their final game of the regular season on Sunday.

Victory at London Skolars will land the promoted club a cool £50,000 windfall ahead of their assault on the new-look Championship next season.

But it is the other single achievement that will leave co-owner Carl Hall most happy – a first league title in the club’s 61-year history.

Hall told the Free Press: “The money is great but you just can’t buy history and that’s what the lads could make on Sunday.

“The 61 years is a long time and to achieve something like this for the first time is massive.

“I am so proud of what everyone at this club has managed to achieve so far this season, to be this close to winning the league.

“But I’ll be the proudest man in the world if we get the right result on Sunday.

“Players, staff and die hard supporters deserve a massive pat on the back for getting us this far.”

Two coaches have already been filled for Sunday’s trip to the capital and plenty of other supporters will travel by car.

Hall has taken a great deal of pride in the club not spending beyond its means over the past few seasons.

And should he receive the title winning windfall, Hall has pledged to continue to safeguard the future of the club.

He said: “We’ll not be splashing the cash if we get it.

“We’re very happy with the recruitment we’ve done already for next season and I’m sure it’ll make us competitive.

“We’ve been running on a skeleton staff for a long time now and it’ll be great to be able to add a couple of bodies to help us grow as a club.”

London Skolars are looking to make their own piece of history on Sunday as victory for them will seal their first ever play-off place.
