Plough Lane: Fans raise £5m for AFC Wimbledon's new stadium

AFC Wimbledon fans have managed to raise £5m in a month to ensure that the team can move back to the borough in time for next season.

In December, the club said it needed to raise a further £11m by January to complete their new stadium at Plough Lane.

In response to this, the fan-owned club set up the Plough Lane Bond on 17 January to get the stadium completed this year.

The club aimed to move into the ground- on the site of Wimbledon greyhound stadium - at the start of the season.

Fan Damian Woodward, who helped set up the bond, said: “It will be more than a dream come true having not been back there for 30 years.

“Having been at Plough Lane at the age of 10 and going back, it will be an incredible feeling for many fans and really uplifting for the community.”

Wimbledon FC, as it was known then, left Plough Lane in 1991, first sharing Selhurst Park with Crystal Palace FC, before moving to Milton Keynes where they were renamed as Milton Keynes Dons.

AFC Wimbledon was formed in 2002 by dedicated Wimbledon fans who were not happy about the move to Milton Keynes.

The club's chief executive Joe Palmer said: “I’m delighted by the success of the bond so far and keeping it running was one of the easiest decisions I’ve been a part of since I’ve been here."

Wimbledon: Conservative hold

Stephen Hammond has been re-elected as the MP for Wimbledon, with a decreased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Liberal Democrat Paul Kohler by 628 votes, a reduction from his 2017 majority of 5,622.

Jackie Schneider of the Labour Party came third and independent candidate Graham Hadley came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 0.6 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 53,000 people, roughly three-quarters of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

One of the four candidates, Mr Hadley lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
