From jumpers for goalposts to League One: Ivor Heller interview

Elephant Sport visits Kingsmeadow to interview AFC Wimbledon’s commercial director Ivor Heller.

Ivor was determined to help resurrect his beloved Dons in south-west London following the original Wimbledon FC’s controversial move to Milton Keynes in 2003.

He was there when the newly-formed AFC Wimbledon held open trials for players on Wimbledon Common, and is working hard as the club plans to relocate to a new stadium at its spiritual home in Plough Lane SW17.

Presenter/interviewer – Joe McKay; cameras and editing – Aina Villares-Vila and Jean Verdon.

The flipside to AFC Wimbledon’s success story: Kingstonian FC

Elephant Sport reporters Daniel Racheter and Shan Gambling visit Kingsmeadow Stadium – home of both non-league Kingstonian FC and League One side AFC Wimbledon.

Ryman Premier outfit Kingstonian originally took Wimbledon in, but the Dons are now their landlords and have sold the ground to Chelsea, who want to stage youth and women’s fixtures there.

Wimbledon have plans for a new stadium near the site of their old home in Plough Lane, while the Ks have been left looking for a groundshare for next season.

News on that is imminent as Daniel and Shan gauge the mood around the club during a match against Tonbridge Angels.
