Last season s corresponding match MK Dons first visit to Kingsmeadow since they replaced the old Wimbledon 15 years ago passed without any trouble after heightened measures were implemented. The MK Dons team coach will enter the ground via a separate entrance to avoid it coming into contact with home supporters. Away fans will have to make the trip on official supporters coaches and will also be kept apart from Wimbledon fans.
MK Dons have decided their club officials, including chairman Pete Winkelman, will again sit in the away end and not in the directors box.
In a similar move to the March game of last season, the name of the away team will be missing from the front of the matchday programme and the visitors will appear on the scoreboard as just MK .
Her husband might have recently announced he was retiring from all public engagements from autumn this year but1, it appears Queen Elizabeth II isn’t taking her foot off the pedal anytime soon, both literally and metaphorically. On Sunday morning, the Queen was photographed behind the wheel of a Jaguar while driving from a Church service at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor Park.

Whizzing off in her ‘getaway vehicle’, the 91-year-old looked like a modern day Charlize Theron in The Italian Job (kind of), as she was snapped cruising through Windsor alongside her security guard, days after her grandson, Prince William, announced he was seeking damages and a ‘very significant fine’ from a French publication2 which published images of a topless Kate Middleton on holiday in 2012. Of course, it didn’t take long before the internet caught sight of The Queen behind the wheel and, basically lost its sh*t: ADVERTISEMENT – CONTINUE READING BELOW
With a penchant for driving, ever since her days serving as a mechanic in the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service during WWII, the Queen has been snapped on several occasions with the wind in her hair and she burns some serious rubber driving through the Scottish Highlands and around her six lavish royal residences. And who can forget that time the Queen reportedly jumped in the front seat to give the late King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia a driving tour around Balmoral Castle, knowing all too well women are not allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia? If we could high-five the woman, we would.
In the Saudi ambassador Sherard Cowper-Coles’s memoir, Ever the Diplomat, he brought this story to light, revealing:

There will be a full road closure in place tomorrow afternoon as security measures are stepped up for the Gloucester Rugby game. Kingsholm Road will be completely closed from 3pm, and kick off is at 4pm. The Cherry and Whites1 will be playing the Exeter Chiefs in the last match of the season.
With less than 100 tickets remaining in the Shed, it’s expected to be a busy game.
And there will be increased security measures in place. Police to Twitter to remind people that Kingsholm Road will be shut from 3pm. Those using the Park and Ride service are advised that this service will drop supporters in Worcester Street by the bridge, to allow the bus to return up Black Dog Way and return to the Park and Rude point.
