AFC Wimbledon's success in getting their 18-point penalty reduced to three on appeal will have brought pleasure to those enjoying the rise of a club born of a dedication to the idea of a local club owned and run by its own people. Now comes the news of a second successive promotion for FC United, the club formed in protest against the Glazer's takeover at Old Trafford. "I haven't enjoyed my football so much in years," says the supporter who emailed. Their new chant, sung to the tune of Primal Scream's Movin' On Up, goes: "We're movin' on up, now / From the North West Counties / To the Unibond / To the Unibond / To the Unibond." Maybe to a league meeting with AFC Wimbledon.
