AFC Wimbledon's journey continues with League Two chapter

Almost a decade on, it is easy to forget the raw, seething anger that ultimately gave birth to AFC Wimbledon. Since the scars are still yet to heal, the facts are worth revisiting. In 2002, a three-man FA commission voted two to one to allow the owners of Wimbledon FC to wrench the club out of south London and slap it down 60 miles away in Milton Keynes. Fans of the original club forlornly and impotently howled their outrage the club they had grown up supporting morphed into MK Dons. There was nothing else for it. They would have to start again.
