AFC Wimbledon Continue To Troll Milton Keynes In Brilliantly Petty Fashion

AFC Wimbledon Continue To Troll Milton Keynes In Brilliantly Petty Fashion
By Arthur James O'Dea Updated

Two clubs stemming from a contentious relocation in 2003, Milton Keynes Dons and AFC Wimbledon share an understandably acrimonious relationship.

With their famous 1988 FA Cup win and a well-cultivated status as one of English football's hardest teams, the dissolution of Wimbledon FC in 2004 was jointly met with mild acceptance and, much more pertinently, furious outrage.

While MK Dons assumed the position Wimbledon vacated in the football league, those who could not affiliate themselves with a club now based 45 miles outside of London decided their own fate - AFC Wimbledon was born.

After 15 seasons of toiling through the many tiers of English football, both clubs finally met in League One last season.

Last night, AFC Wimbledon hosted MK Dons again and were keen to demonstrate their sustained distaste for their unavoidable rivals.

Choosing not to acknowledge the existence of last night's opponents anywhere on the match day programme, their antipathy knew no bounds.

Even on the club's website, the home team were down to play 'Milton Keynes Hospitality', a team seemingly not in possession of a crest.

In a match that would eventually go the way of the visitors, the AFC fans did not exclusively reserve their distaste for the opposition to such administrative means.

One of English football's most entertaining rivalries, here's hoping for even greater displays of petulance going forward.
