Profile

AFC Wimbledon are managed by Wally Downes who replaced Neal Ardley in December 2018.

AFC Wimbledon were established in 2002 after an 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.
