Back in 2001, the mighty Redgate Rovers Team got to the Cup Final, played the same day as the Red Scum beat Arsenal in the FA Cup. A couple of us decided to shave our heads to celebrate the fact, and it was a good job because the temperature on the day was pushing 34 degrees! After a punishing game, the Dons came out champions by 3 goals to 1 but we really enjoyed our run-in to the final. We all celebrated for about two or three days, superb summer. Cheers boys.
