Danny Kedwell reckons AFC Wimbledon’s decision to go completely full-time next season could be the catalyst for a promotion surge.

Kedwell swept the board in the Dons’ end of season honours list, picking up Player of the Year, Player’s Player of the Year and both Junior Dons and Radio Wimbledon’s Player of the Year trophies.

But, after a season that promised so much but has delivered so little, the striker reckons now is not the time to rest on their laurels.

Kedwell said: “We have to look at what we need to do to improve as we are not that far away.

“If you look at the top four or five teams in the league they are all full-time professionals and it has shown.

“It just comes down to a matter of fitness and I think we have just run out of gas.

“I am not sure exactly who will or will not be here next season but going full-time will give us a real chance.”

Six defeats from nine games has seen both boss Terry Brown and assistant Stuart Cash announce they will be looking to offload a number of players come the summer.

And Kedwell admits he would be thinking exactly the same.

He added: “I think they have every right to be disappointed as I certainly am.

“We were sixth with a game in hand and a fixture list that was in our favour.

“In that respect we should have done a lot better.

“But I also think we have raised expectations to a very high level.

“If we had been fighting relegation and just managed to stay up the place would have been buzzing, so we should not be too hard on ourselves.”

Kedwell always has his four-trophy haul to fall back on.

But the 26-year-old reveals that presents problems of their own.

Kedwell added: “I honestly have no idea where they are all going to go.

“At the moment they are sat on the kitchen table.

“I will have to clear some space, or I might even need to build a shelf.”
