Milton Keynes Dons F.C. was originally connected to Wimbledon F.C. who moved to Milton Keynes in 2004 and shortly afterwards re-launched under the current name. Despite the struggles faced by Wimbledon at the time, the move was a highly controversial one for Wimbledon fans and few of the original fans still support the new club. This is not too surprising seeing as the club moved some 62 miles to the north of its old home! In fact the supporters of the original Wimbledon team formed their own club A.F.C. Wimbledon, after the original club moved. After negotiations with the Wimbledon Independent Supporters Association, the club agreed to sever its claims to the honours and record of Wimbledon and return the club memorabilia to the London Borough of Merton. The club moved to a new stadium the 22,000 seat stadium:mk (known locally as Denbigh Stadium) in 2007. Since the move to Milton Keynes, the team's fortunes have not improved too much, dropping into the bottom tier of the Football League in 2006. They looked like returning to the third tier one year later but suffered defeat in the play-off semi final at the hands of Shrewsbury Town.
