Milton Keynes Dons : Club Background
This is a club whose very existence continues to be contentious in the football world, and there are still many fans who will not attend away matches against the Buckinghamshire franchise although the numbers harbouring resentment to that degree is probably lessening.

The issue is one of the fundamental principles of the English game over its history: that we don't have franchising, with towns and cities 'buying' their position in the football pyramid. Except in a staggering and completely inexplicable over-turning of this principle in 2002. The F.A. set up a Commission to decide the future of Wimbledon F.C., and has subsequently always been totally secretive as to how the decision was reached. Even the then Chief Executive of the F.A., Adam Crozier, came out in public to express his dismay at, and opposition to, the move to Milton Keynes. Since then both the F.A. and the Football League have gone out of their way to say no precedent has been set and that they oppose franchising. All too late in this case, and something that makes that 2002 decision even odder, and for some gives it the stench of corruption.

The name of Wimbledon was soon ditched, though what they are currently called isn't entirely clear as the Football League still refers to them as Milton Keynes Dons whereas everything coming out of the club these days brands them as MK Dons.

At least one thing has improved since our early days of playing them. At that time, they were playing in the National Hockey Stadium which as a football ground was a complete joke. Now they have a new purpose built stadium which has sort of been built on a piecemeal basis. When we first started going there, the ground was 21,000 with the upper tiers left as empty shells - more recently they've got up to 30,000 capacity. There is a theoretical option to add a third tier that would lift capacity to 45,000 although there are no plans in scope for that option at present.

The history section is nice and short anyway. They started with a relegation in 2005-06, and a promotion when they took the League Two title at the end of the 2007-08 season. They made it a double winning season, also securing the Football League Trophy by beating Grimsby Town 2-0 at Wembley. They spent rather a lot of time hovering around the top end of League One but without quite getting promotion, finishing 3rd (2008-09), 12th (2009-10), 5th (2010-11), 5th (2011-12), 8th (2012-13) and 10th (2013-14). In 2014-15, we unfortunately were the club that helped them finally reach the Championship, as they gained automatic promotion by finishing 2nd, thanks to a 5-1 win against the Glovers on the final day of the season.

That was as good as it got through. They managed only one season in the Championship before tumbling back down, whilst for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 season they found League One much more of a struggle than before, ending up suffering another relegation and into League Two for the 2018-19 season. In an effort to get back up again, they've taken on former Glovers midfielder Paul Tisdale as their manager, and he's currently got them in a healthy position, although they'll have to work hard if they are to avoid the play-offs in an ultra-competitive top five area.

Ticket Prices :
Glovers fans have been allocated the North-East corner of the stadium:mk. The 2018-19 admission prices are as follows:
Adults (including Over-65s/Seniors): £10.00; Under-18s: £1.00.
Note that MK say you are required to bring ID with you to act as proof of entitlement although given there are only two age groups involved here, we can't imagine that being enforced too tightly.

All tickets have barcodes on the stub which are used for entry at the turnstile, so supporters are advised to keep tickets in good condition and not to detach the stub. Supporters are encouraged to buy in advance of matchday as away sales are from a cash only ticket booth and queues are likely. There is no matchday surcharge though, so the choice is yours. If you don't want to queue for the cash turnstile, tickets for away supporters are available at two outlets. There's a dedicated away ticket booth adjacent to the away Gate 3. This is cash only. Alternatively, if you need to use a credit/debit card, it's a trek round to the MK Dons Box Office which is to be found between Gates 6 and 7 on the opposite side of the stadium from the away section.

For those who recall the 101 items one was not supposed to take in their previous stadium, and the officious jobsworths whose main delight seemed to be to try and enforce it, the list at their new ground is not quite so prohibitive but does include items most would consider harmless like radios, cameras and flags on poles. Oh, and they are still playing the "You need a fire certificate for any flag/banner bigger than 1.5 metres" card. Sad ****s really.

Disabled Info:
Disabled supporters must book direct with MK Dons by phoning 01908 622900/622901. Dedicated disabled parking is available at the stadium site. If you look at the photo immediately below, you can see the disabled viewing platform and the view you'll get of the pitch from the corner where away fans are situated. Because the stadium is built as a 'bowl', you come into the ground at this level, so it's a pretty easy route through - the advantage of a pre-designed new stadium. Ambulant Disabled and Wheelchair Disabled supporters are charged as per Seniors. You are entitled to admit an assistant free of charge.

General

Milton Keynes is a new town built on the American grid pattern 50 miles north of London and eighty miles south of Birmingham. It is the epitome of modern design - an ordered, structured, clinical, carefully landscaped, anti-septic, green-aware enterprise boom town full of complexes - shopping, leisure, commercial, sport, entertainment, business, artistic, theatrical. You name it, there's a complex. It's the Brave New World we should all be aspiring to - unless you're one of those reactionary fools who thinks a single piece of character, soul, spontaneity, awkwardness, eccentricity or difference would be worth more. Don't panic, there aren't any. The stadium:mk is located between Grafton Street, Saxon Street and the A5 towards the south of this paradise.

By Road

Huish Park to stadium:mk is around the 160 miles mark following the A303, A34, M40, A43 route. At Barley Mow, a couple of miles south of Brackley, you have the choice of the more direct but worse A421 run via Buckingham into Milton Keynes, or the longer dog-leg but better road of continuing up the A43 to Towcester and then back down along the A5 (Watling Street). Both the A421 (which becomes H8 Standing Way in the town) and the A5 will take you to the vicinity of the stadium. From the A421 turn right onto the A5 and then take the first slip road off at the Redmoor interchange, and take the last exit going south on V6 Grafton Street

For those supporters approaching Milton Keynes from the M1, whether North bound or South bound, exit at Junction 14.
As you head towards town, continue straight over the roundabout (Northfield) on H6 Childs Way. At the next roundabout (Fox Milne) turn left onto V11 Tongwell Street. Continue straight over next roundabout (Monkston) along V11 Tongwell Street. At the next roundabout (Brinklow) turn right along the H8 Standing Way (A421). Continue on H8 Standing Way (A421) following signs for Buckingham continuing over a series of roundabouts, until reaching the Bleak Hall roundabout, when turning left onto V6 Grafton Street. Continue through the Redmoor interchange (which bridges the A5) and you should be able to see the stadium.

Away supporters should follow the brown signs for Football Coaches and enter the stadium site via the Saxon Street entrance (between KFC and McDonalds) which takes you closer to the Gate 3 entrance you need.

Parking

Limited parking is available at the stadium priced at £7.00. Yes, that's right £7.00! And even at that price, one car park attendant tried to kid us it was more than that until we challenged him on the price. Alternatively there is car parking available at Castle House on Dawson Road (MK1 1QT) available for £5.00 - that is not run by the club, but they are willing to promote it. Blue Badge parking is available to pre book by emailing customer.services@mkdons.com

Don't waste time looking for on-street parking unless you're prepared to walk a significant distance - it basically doesn't exist in Milton Keynes, certainly not in the vicinity of the stadium. So, as an alternative look for spaces in the industrial areas surrounding the stadium which are generally fairly deserted of workers on a Saturday or towards kick-off during an evening. There are also dozens and dozens of complexes and mini-retail parks scattered throughout the town, some of which are in the vicinity of the stadium. All have parking provision, generally free. You're obviously supposed to be a customer, but we leave that to your conscience and risk taking proclivities.

The main options for free/cheap parking within walking distance of the ground are in the Denbigh West Industrial Estate (MK1 1AX) area, although avoid the Asda as that one is known to be patrolled on matchdays. Other options are Peverel Drive (MK1 1NL) and Mount Farm Industrial Estate (MK1 1LG).

There are a couple of other alternative options involving buses that have been introduced - see the 'Bus' details below.

By Supporters Coaches

The Green and White Supporters Club are running coaches to the match for this 2018-19 season League Two fixture as follows:

Coaches will depart from Huish Park at 9.00a.m. Cost of travel will be £25.00 for Adults, with concessions available at £23.00. Non-GWSC members are welcomed and will pay two pounds extra.

To place your booking, send a text message to Paul Hadlow on 07736 044570. If you want to call him please only do so after 6.00p.m. You can also reach him at paulhadlow@outlook.com - Remember in all cases to ensure you make clear which match you are booking for, your full name (and any other names you are booking for) and a contact telephone number.

By Rail

The nearest mainline railway station is Bletchley, on the West Coast Main Line out of London Euston. The walk to the stadium will take around 30 minutes. Milton Keynes Central Station is a rather longer hike away at about 45 minutes (three miles). Over 200 trains a day stop at Bletchley and/or Milton Keynes, with the bulk of them provided by London Northwestern (formerly London Midland) for local services and Virgin for long distance expresses. You can also take a Southern Rail service from Clapham Junction to Milton Keynes, which may suit those coming in from the West Country who want to avoid the hassle of London Underground, as it gives you just a single change of service coming in from Yeovil Junction, meaning you don't have to go as far as Waterloo on your journey.



By Bus

The Arriva Service 1 route starts at Newport Pagnell, going via Milton Keynes Central rail station and then via the City Centre before heading past the Hospital. You'll need to get off at Grafton Street which is within sight of the stadium entrance. On a Saturday, this route passes through the station at 41 minutes and 11 minutes past the hour. Journey time is 20 minutes, meaning the latest bus you meed is at 2.11p.m. The bus you need will be heading towards Newton Leys.

Going back, you need a bus heading towards Newport Pagnell. The No.1 service leaves at 39 mins and 09 mins past the hour, making the 5.09p.m. bus is your most likely service. Note that these do not appear to stop at the rail station - check with the driver. The Cricketers pub (before) and The Point (after) are the two adjacent stopping points listed on the timetable, both of which are walking distance from the station.

By Taxi

A selection of Milton Keynes taxi companies can be found here.

General

We haven’t played in Milton Keynes much recently – once since 2012, and that nearly four years ago – with the beer and pub scene in the area changing substantially in that time. Concrete Cow is the ‘old-man’ of the micro-brewery scene in the area, having started up in 2007. Since then the satellite suburbs and surrounds of Milton Keynes have seen the appearance of: Bucks Star (2013); Hornes Brewery (2015); Blackened Sun Brewing (2017); a Brewhouse & Kitchen (2018). Unfortunately, none of these, with their Taps, bottle shops and/or tasting rooms, are anywhere near the football ground, nor convenient to any of the stations if using the rail network for your matchday visit.

The pub scene has also altered considerably. The five Wetherspoon/Lloyds No.1 in more central Milton Keynes have been reduced to two, though fortunately the best (and most convenient for Milton Keynes Railway Station, being around a ten minute walk away) is one of the survivors. Meanwhile, shuffling the Spoons deck, a new one, Captain Ridley’s Shooting Party, opened at the end of 2017. As its former name before Tim’s takeover, The Bletchley Arms, hints, this is down near Bletchley Railway Station (0.7 of a mile away). Both this station and the pub are close to two miles from the ground. Back in Milton Keynes central, BrewDog acquired an outlet when it bought the small Draft House chain in 2018. Although stating it was keeping these pubs as they were, this one rapidly lost its Draft House status and has been rebranded into a full-on BrewDog. It’s another few minutes up Sunset Boulevard from Wetherspoons, so c. 13 minutes walk from Milton Keynes Railway Station. The most useful bus from station to stadium, Arriva Route No. 1 (departs station stop Z1 at 11 and 41 minutes past the hour on Saturdays), goes up Sunset Boulevard, with stops close to both the Wetherspoons and BrewDog. Journey time is around 20 to 25 minutes. Get off at Granby stop (Grafton Street) for the stadium.

The closest station to the stadium (just under a mile and a half) is Fenny Stratford - on the branch line from Bletchley to Bedford. Here the Chequers can be added to our previous recommendation, the Red Lion. The Chequers is in the High Street, about a hundred yards from the station; the Red Lion down on the canal, couple of hundred yards from the station.

The closest pub to the football ground (0.7 miles) is the Inn On The Lake, located in Mt Farm Park. It’s reported this pub no longer welcomes away fans, so if you wish to take advantage of its more convenient location it’ll probably be a no colours and keep a low profile situation.

There are some chain bars/diners in the complex around the stadium – Frankie & Benny’s, TGI Fridays, Nando’s, Pizza Express, Marco Pierre Steakhouse Bar & Grill – but this is a guide to pubs featuring some hopefully drinkable beer, so we’re unashamedly ignoring them. For fast food there’s McDonald’s and KFC here too.

Club Bar :

The Red Dot Bar opens at 12.30p.m. on a Saturday and welcomes all supporters. There is also alcohol on sale inside the away section until 3.00p.m. and again at half time. Inside the stadium it’s the usual fairly uninspiring fare that the majority of football grounds delight in providing: burgers, hot dogs and Ginsters pies & pasties. While the home fans purportedly have access to some Real Ale on occasion in their bars, on the away concourse it’s canned and bottled only. However, amongst the grimness that is Heineken, Strongbow, Guinness, and Bulmers, it’s rumoured the odd bottled offering from Concrete Cow Brewery may sometimes show up.

Local Pubs :

BrewDog Milton Keynes: Was the Secklow Hundred (a Wetherspoon Lloyds No.1) when we last visited Milton Keynes. Then it (briefly) became Draft House’s first pub outside London, only to be converted to a BrewDog in 2018 when they bought up Draft House. Has twenty taps, with usually around a dozen of BrewDog’s own beers on and the rest made up of guests from other ‘Craft’ brewers. Keg and Keykeg predominates, though having got through their spasm of deriding Cask BrewDog has recently announced they are going to start producing some again. Typical BrewDog design – lots of metal, exposed pipework, posing tables and high stools. There’s an uncovered terrace out the front, disabled access and children are allowed until 9.00 p.m. No parking of its own, but public pay & display spaces are a few yards away. Food (burgers/hot dogs/wings style) served 12.00 noon – 10.00 p.m. every day. Opening times: 12.00 noon – 11.00 p.m. Sunday to Thursday; 12.00 noon – 2.00 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Three miles from Stadium:MK.
BrewDog Milton Keynes, 316, Midsummer Boulevard, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, MK9 1EB. Tel: 01908 240055. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

Captain Ridley’s Shooting Party: Formerly Bletchley Arms, this was bought and converted into a Wetherspoon in 2017. Opening 8.00 a.m. – 12.00 midnight, with food served 8.00 a.m. – 11.00 p.m., every day (though note most Spoons don’t start serving alcohol until 10.00 a.m.). Has up to 12 real ales on: three of the Spoons core of Doom Bar, Greene King Abbot and Ruddles Best; plus nine changing, though with less emphasis on local beers than the other Spoons listed (below). Children friendly; an outside area. Unusually for a Wetherspoon this one has some parking of its own. A mile and a half from the stadium.
Captain Ridley’s Shooting Party, 183-185 Queensway, Bletchley, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, MK2 2ED. Tel: 01908-621020. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

Chequers: Reopened in 2017 after extensive refurbishment, it’s one of three pubs currently owned by Buckinghamshire based Vale Brewery. It naturally features two of their beers, Best Vale IPA and Gravitas Pale Ale as regulars; with another four changing Real Ales guests from other small independent breweries, two of which are on gravity. Two real ciders are stocked. Keg offerings steer away from the obvious national and international lines towards ‘Craft’; and the bottled beers focus mostly on Belgian. There’s a courtyard beer garden, and small car park to rear (via Bristow Close off Simpson Road). We’ve not been here before, but the flight of steps up to the front door visible in photos suggests it’s not wheelchair accessible – unless there’s another entrance? Opening hours are: 5.00 p.m. - 11.00 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday; 12.00 noon - 3.00 p.m. & 5.00 p.m. - 11.00 p.m. Thursday and Friday; 12.00 noon - 11.00 p.m. Saturday; 12.00 noon - 10.30 p.m. Sunday. The menu is of the grilled burgers/chicken/steak style, but vegetarian options are offered. Food available: 12.00 noon – 2.00 p.m. Thursday to Saturday; 5.00 p.m. – 9.00 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday; 12.00 to 4.00 p.m. Sunday. This pub is a 1.3 mile walk to Stadium:MK.
Chequers, 48 Watling Steet, Fenny Stratford, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, MK2 2BY. Tel: 01908-374527. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

Inn On The Lake: Reports say this pub stopped accepting away fans around the time Franchise were in the Championship. Whether this still holds good now any invasion from supporters of most League Two clubs turning up on their doorstep would be measured in double figures rather than hundreds, we don’t know. Best to approach without colours and an obvious ‘WE’RE AWAY FANS RA RA RA!’ air until the lie of the land is established though, if the convenience of it being the closest pub to the stadium (bit over half a mile) does attract you. Large modern dining and function pub in an attractive location overlooking a park and lake. Has two Real Ales, Bombardier and a changing option from local micro-brewers Concrete Cow. Keg is from the multinational giants. It’s child friendly, has disabled access, a pub garden and parking. Food served: 12.00 noon - 2.30 p.m. & 5.00 p.m. - 8.30 p.m. Monday to Thursday; 12.00 noon - 2.30 p.m. & 5.00 p.m. – 9.00 p.m. Friday; 12.00 noon - 9.30 p.m. Saturday; 12.00 noon – 7.00 p.m. Sunday. Opening hours are 12.00 - 11.00 p.m. every day.
Inn On The Lake, Bond Avenue, Bletchley, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, MK1 1PA. Tel: 01908-646868. Map: Click Here.

Red Lion: Seems to have recently swapped from a Mitchells & Butlers Ember Inn to a Punch Tavern in the tedious shuffling of outlets between Pubcos that goes on endlessly. Was reopened after major refurbishment, with a new landlord, at the end of 2018. Early days, but appears to be moving away somewhat from its previous commitment to Real Ales and Ciders. That said, there’s still four hand pumps, with Wadworth 6X as the house beer and three changing guests, though tending to be stuff from nationals like Marston’s and Greene King. One Real Cider has survived, usually Weston’s Old Rosie. On the Grand Union Canal, there’s a beer garden. Opening hours are: 3.00 p.m. - 11.00 p.m. Monday; 12.00 noon - 11.00 p.m. Tuesday to Thursday; 12.00 noon – 12.00 midnight Friday and Saturday; 12.00 noon - 10.30 p.m. Sunday. Food is served: 12.00 noon - 2.30 p.m. and 6.00 p.m. – 9.00 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday; 12.00 noon – 5.00 p.m. Sunday. Just under a mile and a half from the stadium.

Wetherspoons: Unusual for Wetherspoon in that it looks like it might have been purpose designed as a pub - but then there aren't any old buildings to take over in central Milton Keynes. Opening is 7.00 a.m. – 12.00 midnight Sunday - Friday, 7.00 a.m. - 1.00 a.m. Saturday (though note most Spoons don’t start serving alcohol until 10.00 a.m.). Food served 7.00 a.m. – 11.00 p.m. every day. Children welcome; disabled friendly with step free access. Outside area with some cover, half of which smokers are still allowed to use. Less than 10 minutes walk from Milton Keynes (Central) Railway Station. Tim has now banned all dogs (except assistance dogs) from the environs of Spoons, both inside and outside, though this unlikely to be relevant if you are going to a football match. Has up to 12 real ales on: four of the Spoons core ones, plus eight changing, with an emphasis on local beers. Three miles from the stadium.

Likelihood the Natives Will Understand You :

Milton Keynes is the most characterless place I know in Britain. Its population of over 200,000 is almost entirely made up of those who think that is terrific.

Top-Tip :

Arrive close to kick-off, leave the area immediately the final whistle blows.
