Profile

AFC Wimbledon are currently managed by Neal Ardley who replaced the sacked Terry Brown back in October 2012, meaning he is now one of the longest-serving gaffers in English football. Under Ardley the club won promotion to League One in 2015/16 after beating Plymouth in the play-offs.

AFC Wimbledon were established in 2002 after a FA ruling saw Wimbledon move their base to the new town of Milton Keynes and fans were incensed by the decision and decided to set up a whole new team called AFC Wimbledon, which is based in the Kingston-upon-Thames area.

With fans feeling the base in Milton Keynes had no representation of Wimbledon's legacy and tradition, AFC Wimbledon were born and have since become a successful team in their own right.

Installed into the Premier Division of the Combined Counties League, AFC Wimbeldon have gradually risen through the English footballing ranks and having won the aforementioned Combined Counties Premier Division continued to gain promotion until they ventured into the Conference after the 2008-2009 season.

Having finished second in the Conference in the 2010-2011 season, the Dons' managed to finally complete the dream of playing league football again as they prevailed in a tense play-off final beating Luton Town on penalties.

Now under the stewardship of Neil Ardley, fans will want the meteoric rise to continue, with the club currently playing their football in League One.
