Match notes
A good luck message from John Green.
The big day has arrived. After season of ups and downs, a mixture of heartbreak, joy, darkness (literally!), it has all come down to this. It's the League 2 play-off final on the big stage. A chance for the Dons to be promoted for the sixth time since the club's formation 14 years ago today, and join the other League Two promotees; Northampton Town, Oxford United, and Bristol Rovers in League One for the first time in the 2016/17 season.
Finishing 7th this season, AFC Wimbledon were the last club to advance to the League Two play-offs, overcoming Accrington Stanley over two legs and extra time (in dramatic fashion) to reach the final today.
Plymouth Argyle finished the League Two season in 5th to secure a spot in the play-offs. They are in the final today at the expense of Portsmouth, whom they beat 1-0 at home in their second leg semi-final after drawing 2-2 away in the first leg. Plymouth have been in this position before, having made it to the then Third Division (fourth tier) Play-Off final in 1996, winning promotion to the Second Division (third tier).  
AFC Wimbledon Starting XI: Kelly Roos (GK), Barry Fuller (Captain), Callum Kennedy, Paul Robinson, Darius Charles, Andy Barcham, Dannie Bulman, Jake Reeves, Tom Elliott, Lyle Taylor (the Montserratian Messi), Connor Smith Substitutes: James Shea (GK), Adebayo Akinfenwa (The Beast), Sean Rigg, Jon Meades, Adebayo Azeez, Ryan Sweeney, Rhys Murphy Manager: Neal Ardley

There we have it! The Dons have been promoted for the sixth time in fourteen years. They have never been in the third tier of English football before, but they have dreamed and the dream has now come true. Thank you everyone for joining along with me here. This is something truly special.
Fair play to Plymouth as well for the good game. Unfortunately there had to be a loser in this game, but that's football for you. Next season!
