Wimbledon-Plough-LanePlough Lane was home to Wimbledon from its opening in 1912 to 1991, when the club moved to a “temporary” groundshare with Crystal Palace. The ground continued to be used for both Wimbledon Reserves and Crystal Palace Reserves until 1998, when Sam Hammam sold the ground to Safeway. It was demolished that summer.
