As an Oxford United fan thought i would like to help with some freindly advice for the Green Army that are travelling to AFC Wimbledon on Saturday, when we went there on the 4th their were no turnstiles, tickets were scanned by stewards outside, tables were set up for bag searches, tops had to be taken off bottles, even water. the ground itself is in a very run down slum area, so would advise you get food and drink before arrival.
After the game our coaches had been moved to a side street which was closed off with barriers which were locked giving access to the main road, having boarded the coaches it was discovered they couldnt find who had the key, we eventually got away having sat there for a good 45mins, the whole place is an absolute shambles, they do a decent programme though for £3.
Hope this will help towards your visit.
look forward to seeing you all next month when you come to Oxford
Regards

INFORMATION PROVIDED BY OUR FRIENDS FROM THE DONS' TRUST​

Wombling Away​

On Saturday 18th September, the Green Army will make its first visit to AFC Wimbledon’s new ground at Plough Lane.

After many years away from their spiritual home, the Dons have finally returned to SW19, and many Argyle fans are looking forward to the trip to the capital for this fixture.
However, the journey won’t be quite as simple as it could be, as the District Line is scheduled to be closed on the day of the game, so that means you’ll need to plan ahead for an alternative route.
Advice given by our friends at Wimbledon’s Trust is to get the Bakerloo line from Paddington to Waterloo, then catch a South Western Trains service from there to Earlsfield.

That will still leave a mile’s walk from Earlsfield to the ground itself.
The ONLY away fan access to the ground is through Riverside Road at the north end.

Please check for latest District Line news before Saturday.

An alternative way to get there is the Northern line from Waterloo to Tooting Broadway and then either walk to the ground or get the 493 bus that stops near the ground.

The nearest rail station is actually haydens road and there is a lidl opposite ground. Parking is a mere but my advice to to park towards Wandsworth common which is a nicer area and walk down. Only one pub which is red lion so probably best to have pint in wandsworth town before game

Rundown slum area :ROFLMAO: My sister lives there!

Leather Bottle has a cracking beer garden, Bean and Hop does great coffee/food and there's a nice walk along the river Wandle. There's also a great taproom called By the Horns right near the ground.

Also for parking, it's currently free on the weekend for a lot of the roads in the area, but can be hard to get close to the stadium on match day. This is changing in October though.

You have to Remember that the 3/4 of a stadium that Oxford call home is on the Blackbird Leys estate so they would have a pretty good idea of what a 'Rundown Slum' looks like

My relative that lives in Wimbledon says that the easiest way to get to the ground with the tube shut is to get a Mainline train from London Waterloo to Wimbledon. Turn right out of the station entrance and right again onto Alexander Road. Bus Stop A is on your left and from there get the 493 bus to stop SL Wimbledon Stadium. If coming from north of the Thames, there is a half hourly Thameslink service to Haydons Road from London St Pancras, Farringdon and Blackfriars,(Train destination Sutton). When you get to the main road from the station turn right, then turn right again at the Jehovas Witness' Hall. This is Plough Lane and stadium is about 600m on the left. (Haydons Road can also be reached from Wimbledon by train. Again a Half-hourly service destination St Albans but he recommends the bus if going that way) He also tells me that the stadium is very well hidden and there are access restrictions for away fans who will be guided around a long and torturous path to get to gate 7. Also if you are in Blocks 110 OR 111 you will be looking diagonally across the pitch from Corner Flag to Corner flag.
