Thirteen years ago AFC Wimbledon were formed, in the lowest League of English football.

They had no players, manager, stadium not even a kit and they were just a group of supporters who had their own club taken from them, and they vowed to rebuild the club.

They set out to do what had been done before by the original Wimbledon FC climb through the football pyramid.

Now some thirteen years later, they are set to return to their spiritual home of Plough Lane, the club have confirmed.

Merton Council gave the club permission to build a 20,000 all seater stadium, initially it will hold 11,000 with an option to expand up to 20,000.

It will also include 602 residential buildings, retail and commercial, and a leisure club.

Hopefully this news will inspire the team, as it often does and Wimbledon will be able to mount a challenge for promotion from League Two.

I'm a happily married 36 years old with 2 children. I've had many careers in my working life from starting out as a kitchen porter to owning and running several businesses such as car repair centre, car sales and more recently a taxi firm. However my passion is football and in particular Plymouth Argyle. I'm now embarking on a career within the football industry where I can add my business knowledge to a job I am passionate about.
