Blogger Peter Briers made the trip to the South West for a festive fixture as Exeter City welcomed AFC Wimbledon. Ground: St James’ Park 55/92 Game: Exeter City 0-2 AFC Wimbledon Date: 28/12/2015 Of the remaining 38 grounds on my 92 Exeter’s St James’ Park was one the places I was most looking forward to ticking off. In an era were all seater stadia are the norm I was realising the chance to experience the largest terraced stand in the top 4 divisions of English football; the Big Bank. I wasn’t disappointed. The stand, which sits behind the goal has… Read more »

Dan White takes in Kingsmeadow

AFC Wimbledon v Tranmere Rovers League 2 at Kingsmeadow Stadium

Another day, another debutant! Welcome to Leeds fan and budding sports photographer Dan White who begins by recounting his trip to the home of AFC Wimbledon. Ground: Kingsmeadow 1/92 Game: AFC Wimbledon 2-2 Tranmere Rovers Date: 25/10/14 Thoughts on the ground: When I arrived at Kingsmeadow, one of the first things I realised was how small the ground was. It does only hold a maximum of 4,850 fans with 2,265 of those fans seated. Then again, I’ve grown up living next door to Elland Road Stadium which holds just short of 39,000 fans. I ended up in the Your Golf… Read more »

The Exiles head to Kingsmeadow

AFC Wimbledon v Newport County League Two

Newport County fan James Steven makes his blogging debut making the trip to Kingsmeadow to see the Exiles take on AFC Wimbledon. Ground: 43/92 Game: AFC Wimbledon 2-0 Newport County AFC Date: 07/02/2015 Thoughts on the ground: Since the rebuilding of AFC Wimbledon the side have played their games at Kingstonian’s ground Kingsmeadow. It’s a temporary ground for the Wombles as they are pressing for a move back to their true home. As a Newport County supporter through the years I’ve watched the side claim two promotions. So for me this ground was a bit of a flashback of… Read more »

Wimbledone! Kingsmeadow ticked off

Gates at Kingsmeadow AFC Wimbledon

Groundhopper Tim Dove heads to Kingsmeadow to tick off the home of AFC Wimbledon on his quest to join the 92 club. Ground: Kingsmeadow 85/92 Game: AFC Wimbledon 1-2 Cambridge United Date: 29/11/2014 Thoughts on the ground: Kingsmeadow is a small but tidy stadium that has a modern feel to it due to the investment in recent years since AFC Wimbledon took over the lease from Kingstonian FC, who still groundshare with the Dons. On one side is the Paul Strank Stand. This is a covered and all seated Main Stand which has recently been extended and runs the full-length… Read more »

AFC Wimbledon move closer to Plough Lane return

AFC Wimbledon's current home ground Kingsmeadow

With the planning application recently submitted AFC Wimbledon’s dream of returning to their spiritual routes edges that little bit closer to becoming a reality. We speak to Dons fan Joe Moger about the latest goings ons at the club. Groundsman: You have enjoyed a meteoric rise through the divisions – would a return to Plough Lane be the icing on the cake? Joe: It would certainly be the icing on the cake, but not quite the cherry on top. There’s been a long term dream of returning to Plough Lane and the Championship, both are still quite a long way… Read more »

The Phantom Derby

The debate is intense, fiery and fierce: should you actively fund MK Dons, the breakaway republic of Wimbledon FC, and visit stadium:MK on your quest to the hallowed 92 football league grounds? We look further into the Phantom Derby. The Phantom Derby I have had a healthy debate with several people on their quest for the ‘91’ who aren’t even acknowledging the existence of MK Dons as part of a 92. These guys were Hull City, Darlington and West Brom fans. They have no allegiance to Wimbledon. Just resolute morals of right and wrong in football and they have disregarded… Read more »
