We are Wimbledon, 9 years and still crazy!

Well, it would be fair to say that Saturday 21 May 2011 is notched in history as a key day.
9 years after becoming one of the several thousand Wombles who re-formed our football club following the Milton Keynes and FA supported theft of our community club from South West London, we have now rejoined the football league!
The glorious successful AFC Wimbledon squad of 2010-11 put us through the grinder yesterday with 90 minutes of deadlock, 30 minutes of more deadlock and then, finally, 4-3 win on penalties to take us up to League 2, the Football League, a league below clubs like Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton Athletic (and MK Dons…). WOW!
Commiserations to Luton who played their part in a cracking 0-0. Their fans were pretty good (and outnumbered us 2 to 1 roughly!) and their team were pretty good. I do consider that we were the better team although we appeared to be developing a similarity with Arsenal with very pretty play but not applying the killer touch!
Anyway, who cares quite frankly. Terry Brown has proved himself to us as a superb man manager brining in youth with experience and ensuring continuity as well as flair and a calibre of football extremely pleasing on the eye… And then to Danny Kedwell, Captain Extraordinaire, goal machine, a true Womble number nine and now leading us into the League and will undoubtedly batter League 2 defences like he has done this last season.
And finally, Seb Brown, our number one, 2 penalty saves, a Womble through and through, born indeed to Wombles not long after our FA Cup victory of ’88… a superb keeper and will surely grace a Premiership team pretty soon, sadly too soon for us to catch up with him!
An amazing day, a great stadium (Eastlands), the fans were amazing, our team and staff were amazing, this is surely the greatest story ever told!!!
