THE TABLE
THE RESULTS
Wimbledon entered administration in June 2003 and played their first match in the Football League First Division at the National Hockey Stadium in Milton Keynes in September. Although crowds improved at the club's new base, the administrator sold any player who could command a
transfer fee and Stuart Murdoch's team finished bottom.
The club was brought out of administration at the end of
the season and  rebranded as Milton Keynes Dons.

THE MANAGER
Stuart Murdoch was born in Blackpool on 17 August 1950. He worked with Glenn Roeder at Watford before moving to Wimbledon in 1996 as goalkeeping coach and was appointed as manager in June 2002 after a successful spell as caretaker, replacing Terry Burton, who had criticised the club's owners over the proposed move to Milton Keynes.
  Murdoch led Wimbledon to tenth in the First Division in the 2002–03 season. After the move to Milton Keynes, the club was relegated, finishing bottom of the First Division, suffering the longest run of defeats at this level. In the summer, the club was renamed Milton Keynes Dons. Murdoch was fired in November 2004, with the club in the relegation zone of League One.
  Murdoch later worked in coaching roles at Bournemouth, Norwich City, Millwall, Southampton and Gillingham.
