The AFC Wimbledon story: From Kingsmeadow to Plough Lane

Take a look at a short documentary produced by students

20 April 2020

Glyn Hodges talked about doing jobs at Plough Lane as a scholar coming through the ranks in a documentary about AFC Wimbledon.

Louis Bell, Adam Harvey, and George Watkins - students at University Campus of Football Business (Wembley) - visited our training ground before the lockdown to interview Glyn. They put together a documentary for their assignment based on our move back to Plough Lane and what it means for our fans.

In his interview, Glyn said: "One year when I was a scholar we had to dig out the footings for the new stand. We painted the railings and the barriers, cut the pitch, and painted the dressing rooms, so I spent a lot of time there. I have fond memories of the place. From probably having a couple of thousand there to selling out, we got into the first division.

"It was a great atmosphere and it was quite a formidable place, where not many people liked to come and play. At nine years of age I was playing for East Merton and I was fully aware that it was the only club in the borough. To be one of the youth products, have that success as a player, and to manage the club - being from just down the road in Mitcham - gives me immense pleasure and I'm extremely proud."
