AFC Wimbledon A Local Football Clubs

History

1889 Formed as Wimbledon was formed in 1889 as Wimbledon Old Centrals by the old boys of Old Central School in Camp Road. They played their football on a pitch on Wimbledon Common and used the Fox and Grapes Inn public house as a changing room. First honours came with the Clapham League title in 1896. Became Wimbledon Football Club in May 1905.

In 1905 they renamed the club Wimbledon FC and registered with the Surrey FA. The early years were somewhat turbulent however, with no permanent ground or playing strip, and with supporters hard to find, the club almost went out of existence

By 1910, they had more or less stopped playing and existed in name only, even the local press had turned their back on the club.

In 1912, the club was reborn. It merged with a local rival team that played at the dog track, and kept the name Wimbledon FC. With the backing of the local council, they built a ground on a patch of reclaimed swamp land and called it "Plough Lane". and joined the Athenian League seven years later.

1921: Joined the Isthmian League, winning the Championship for the first of eight times 10 years later. with a then record number of points. Beaten Amateur Cup Finalists, 1935 and 1947

After the first world war, the club joined the Isthmian league and in the 30's enjoyed some considerable success as an amateur team; winning the championship no less than four times in six years. Plough Lane was commandeered by the army during world war 2 and was bombed. It was rebuilt after the war. Although we enjoyed some cup success in the 40's and 50's we didn't manage to recapture the success of the early years and win the Isthmian League until 1958. Under the stewardship of Les Henley, we won the league 3 times in a row between 1961 and 1964 when we turned semi-professional and joined the Southern League.

1963: Amateur Cup Winners at Wembley, Eddie Reynolds heading all four against Sutton. Turned professional a year later, joining the Southern League, Division One, and winning promotion immediately. Took on Burnley, Leeds and Middlesbrough in FA Cup giant killing runs mid-70's; Premier Division Champions, three years running

Southern League days were a mixture of success on the pitch, coupled with financial hardship. Won promotion from the SL first division to the Premier division at the very first time of asking and we were never relegated. In our first five seasons in the premier division, we didn't finish outside the top five, though we didn't actually win it, continually failing at the last hurdle after topping the division for, sometimes, months on end. The 1970-71 season saw the start of our decline and the departure of manager Les Henley after 16 years in charge. The following three seasons saw two new managers, neither of whom managed to bring success back to the club, nor to the cope with the financial hardships at the club. The 1974-75 season saw the arrival of Allen Batsford, and the arrival of new impetus. We had a monumental FA Cup run in 1975, reaching the third round for the first time in our history, and overcoming Burnley 1-0 away from home. In the fourth round we drew Leeds at Elland Road. We drew 0-0 and Dickie Guy saved a penalty. We went out in the replay, losing 1-0 to a Dave Bassett own goal. We won the premier division three times in succession and finally won election into the football league on the 17th June 1977.

Dickie Guy

1977: Elected to Football League and gained promotion to Third division two years later. twice relegated to Division Four, but regained place, as Champions, 1983. Promoted to Second Division 1984, and First Division 1986.

The Ryman League Disciplinary board today ruled that AFC Wimbledon had been playing an ineligible player since the Harrow match on the 11th of November 2006 and have removed all point won in that period in which Jermaine Darlington had taken place without an International Transfer Certificate, totaling 18 point's.

Click here a more official statement from the club

The league table has been updated and we are now 12th with 33 points, only 17 points of the play-offs spot, now let's win every game from here to the end of the season, get into play-off's and win those all away and get promotion out of this league.

AFC Wimbledon decision
Monday 26th March 2007.

From the FA's Site.
At an FA Appeal Board meeting today, the points deduction imposed on AFC Wimbledon by the Ryman League was reduced from 18 points to 3 points.

The points had been deducted after the club fielded an ineligible player, Jermaine Darlington, who had previously played for Cardiff City and had not obtained international clearance before representing AFC Wimbledon.

The Appeal Board ruled that, although the Ryman League had not misinterpreted its rules on eligibility and the decision to deduct 18 points was wholly in accordance with those rules, given the specific and unusual circumstances the deduction of 18 points was excessive.

The £400 fine imposed by the league was not reduced.

Well done to Erik and all at the club who help out with the appeal
