This is a truly remarkable piece of Womble propaganda. The first 5 minutes provide an account of AFC Wimbledon "making Kingsmeadow their home". Ivor Heller recounts his first conversations with Anup and Rajesh Khosla. "They were very open to the idea", Ivor recalls. Fancy that!

Erik Samuelson then says that "we got this place in 2002 [to rent] and within two or three weeks I realised we needed to buy it. Clubs that don't own their own ground don't survive". Thank you, Erik.

He talks about how they funded the deal but does not mention the finance arranagement with Khosla.

There is a gentle guitar soundtrack, sentimental strings, an uplifting nostalgia, magical memories...
