Ian’s article on the future of my club, Kingstonian, got to press as I was writing a similar piece. I could not have bettered Ian’s work – he should really be winning awards for this sort of thing. But even Ian fell foul of one or two of the misinformation traps which the story has set. So I’ve got at least some excuse for flinging my righteous indignation your way.R
ecently, I’ve watched as the club I’ve supported for thirty-three-and-a-half years has come under apparently fatal threat. Halfway through those years, such a situation would occupy my thoughts in every available waking hour. Now? I care less obsessively. Yet I have been shocked by how unaware and ill-prepared some at Kingstonian (Ks) have been for AFC Wimbledon receiving planning permission to build a ground on the old Wimbledon FC’s Plough Lane site. It is worth re-iterating (and italicising) that this was the whole point of AFC Wimbledon existing in the first place. Because, as Ian implied, Ks’ pre-planning for the eventuality appears to have been threadbare. Possibly within the boardroom and certainly among the fan base.
