AFC Wimbledon promoted

Congratulations to AFC Wimbledon who have today been promoted to the Football League. Whenever I think of Wimbledon, I always remember this quote:

 ‘It should be in the interests of football as a whole that major new stadia are encouraged where there is an untapped demand for major league football, such as in new towns. It is true that a route does exist through the pyramid structure to achieve this, but it is a somewhat tortuous one.

The above quote is from the “Summary of the Commitee’s decision” to relocate Wimbledon FC to Milton Keynes. The players, fans and owners of AFC Wimbledon have really shown those idiots up today.

      It is rare if not a unique football journey: club stollen and destroyed by corrupt Football League bosses was recurrected by its fans 9 years ago when Wimbledon FC (at the time in Premiership) was taken away from fans and relocated in Milton Keynes. With nothing but fans determination the club was reborn. AFC Wimbledon started from the lowest league and today, after 5 promotions, enter Footbal League again. Back where it belongs.

      Congratulations to (the real) Wimbledon football club – they now stand just one promotion away from sharing a league with Franchise FC… That would be a very interesting derby!

      It will be no “derby”, 60 miles between the real Wimbledon and the Milton Keynes football frenzy is why we wouldn’t go there in the first place.
