Wimbledon Football Club

Group  From 1889  To 2004

Categories: Sport / Games

Formed in Wimbledon as Wimbledon Old Centrals in 1889. Based at Plough Lane 1912 - 91. Winners of a unique cup double: the FA Amateur Cup in 1963 and the FA Cup in 1988. Nicknamed "the Dons" and then "the Wombles". Left Plough Lane to groundshare with nearby Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Moved to Milton Keynes in 2003 and changed their name to Milton Keynes Dons in 2004. Not surprisingly their south London supporters had little interest in supporting a team based in Milton Keynes and they formed a new club, AFC Wimbledon.
