Relive the history of AFC Wimbledon through newspaper clippings in this personalised AFC Wimbledon book. With coverage beginning in 1962, the year the Dons won the Isthmian League, this magnificent piece of AFC Wimbledon memorabilia takes you through decades of history, revisiting all the key moments from Plough Lane, Kingsmeadow and beyond, right up until the present day.

The history of Wimbledon football is a complex one, not least because it is split between two different entities. The original Wimbledon’s rise to the top was nothing short of meteoric. Only joining the Football League in 1977, nine years later they were playing top flight football, thanks to three promotions in four years. But Sam Hammam’s self-styled “Crazy Gang” weren’t done there. The perennially defiant side featuring Vinnie Jones, Dennis Wise, John Fashanu and Lawrie Sanchez defeated league champions Liverpool in the 1988 F.A. Cup final courtesy of a now-legendary penalty save by Dave Beasant. The match would be remembered as one of the biggest cup final upsets of all time. This version of Wimbledon FC would be officially laid to rest in 2004, when the club, now relocated to Milton Keynes, changed its name accordingly. In response, Wimbledon supporters founded a new club, AFC Wimbledon. Working its way up through the division, the team went 78 league games unbeaten, earning six promotions, and entering the Football League in 2011, the first club formed in the 21st century to do so.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

Really first class service, I had the book delivered 48 hours after my order. I did pay for next day delivery but it wasn’t expensive. The book took my breath away, it was top quality and so beautifully presented.

Mrs R Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 1 Aug 2021

Does not look very impressive

Given the cost of this, I expected the book to look a bit more impressive. It’s a very thin paperback book and doesn’t look at all like a special gift, which I hoped it would be. Maybe my fault for not reading all the descriptions properly, but I am disappointed and would not buy again.

Thanks so much for the Moana book

Thanks so much for the Moana book. My niece Eve will love it. It’s the best personalised book I’ve bought without a doubt. But then again, I’d expect nothing less from the masters in Disney. Vivienne

Very disappointed in the book

Very disappointed in the book, misleading certificate on title page looks like a small sticker I could have placed on myself, poor value for money- quick dispatch was the best bit
