During the 2003-04 English football season, AFC Wimbledon competed in the Combined Counties League Premier Division. The Dons won their first 21 league games before a 2–2 draw against Sandhurst Town on 10 January 2004, giving them 32 consecutive wins in league games over two seasons. AFC Wimbledon became the only club in England at any level to maintain a perfect league record for the 2003–04 season. Despite the suspension of Eames on 13 February 2004, AFC Wimbledon's success continued under caretaker manager Nicky English, whose first game in charge resulted in a club away record of a 9–0 victory over Chessington United on 14 February 2004. English holds the record to date of being the only AFC Wimbledon manager never to lose a match. Terry Eames was subsequently officially sacked on 18 February 2004 for gross misconduct following a disciplinary hearing. The team went on to finish as champions of the Combined Counties League, with an unbeaten record for the season, consisting of 42 wins and 4 draws. Promotion to the Isthmian League First Division was therefore assured, and the club even completed a double by winning the league's Premier Challenge Cup after beating North Greenford United 4-1 in the Final on 30 April 2004. The Dons took part in the FA Vase for the first and only time, reaching the Fourth Round before succumbing to Colne, losing 2–1 on 17 January 2004 in front of a crowd of 3,215, the highest recorded attendance in the competition that year other than at the final.
