AFC WIM­BLE­DON chief ex­ec­u­tive Erik Sa­muel­son says Boris John­son’s de­ci­sion to need­lessly call in their sta­dium ap­pli­ca­tion has cost the club over £1m.

Writ­ing in his pro­gramme notes, Sa­muel­son said the for­mer Ma­jor of Lon­don’s call was “in­ex­pli­ca­ble” – and that view was proven cor­rect when Sadiq Khan quickly waved their plans for a Plough Lane re­turn through.

The Dons supremo also re­vealed the de­lay added half a year to their timescale.

He wrote: “It costs us over six months in de­lays and over £1m in our costs due to in­fla­tion in the con­struc­tion in­dus­try.”
