AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley has urged fans of the club to get behind plans for a new 11,000-seater stadium.

Ardley put out a statement to fans via the club’s official website, asking them to write online letters to Merton Council in support of the planning application.

The Dons are seeking a move from Kingsmeadow, and want to build a new venue just yards from their old Plough Lane home.

Boss Ardley said: This is absolutely vital. There has been so much work going on behind the scenes and we’re at the final hurdle now.

“We need as many people as possible to let the council know how much support there is for this. The players have tweeted about it to help get the word out there. Everyone can play their part and if you haven’t sent in a letter yet, then let’s get it done. We all want to make sure that we get this over the line.”
