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.

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 »
