AFC Wimbledon clinched promotion to League One after seeing off Plymouth 2-0 in the League Two play-off final.

The Dons needed goals from Lyle Taylor and Adebayo Akinfenwa in the closing stages at Wembley Stadium to reach the third tier, 14 years after forming.

GetWestLondon spoke with the key players as they filed out through the national stadium's mixed zone.

Below are the key quotes from the Dons' heroes.

Goalscorer Lyle Taylor

“It’s just a dream - an absolute dream.

“I went the gym with Jake Reeves a few days ago and he said to me ‘if you score, you go mental’ and since then I knew I was going to score.

“It sounds strange because I’ve not gone through the whole season knowing I was going to score but I have always been confident and I just knew I’d get a chance to score.”

“Callum and I had an exchange of words. I knew why he wanted to take the penalty. I did say he could have one at the end of the seaosn.

“Speaking to gaffer and knowing that'd be my last game there's no better way to sign off.

“I wanted to leave this club promoted. To score with the last kick of the game. There's nothing better.

“It's a beautiful feeling. It's onwards and upwards for AFC Wimbledon. I've been here two years and the club will have a place in my heart.”

Goalkeeper Kelle Roos

“It's the best day in my career by far. It's only a little footballing life but I'm very happy to be able to say I've won a Wembley final.

Hands up: Kelle Roos

“It has to sink in that we made it but with a club like AFC Wimbledon, we go into history.

“It was a very solid game from us and it's a credit to the team. I've been busier over the last few months. We want the team to protect the goal. I think I've done that.

“When Lyle scored, I thought we'd won it as we weren't going to concede. Me and the defenders know we're not going to concede and we felt that.

“What a man Adebayo Akinfenwa is. He brings joy to the place. He's a friendly giant. It's incredible.”

Left back Callum Kennedy

Heads: Callum Kennedy gets their first

"Ade won the penalty debate and he wanted it and then for personal reasons I lost my dad this season so I wanted it as a salute to him, so Ade gave it to me. Then Bayo came over and said he wanted it because it was his last game.

"It was a heat of the moment thing, but as long as we scored and we won I could not care less.

"I feel overwhelmed, happy, proud – it has all come together really. I can’t really say this of course because we came here with all respect for Plymouth and we knew it was going to be a hard game, but it was done in my eyes. I couldn't see anything but us going on to win. I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life.

"It has been about the lads egging each other on to be the best they can be.

"I’ve been at other clubs where if you go in the gym you get called names for doing a bit extra, or for trying to get in the gaffer’s good books, but at this club everybody wants to be the best they can never felt so sure about anything in my life."

Defender Paul Robinson

Determined: Paul Robinson (R) beats Jake Jervis of Plymouth to the ball

“It's brilliant for the fans and everyone connected with the club and another step forward on this journey.

“It's amazing for everyone. I'm pleased we could share it with everyone at the best stadium in the world.

“It was great to keep a clean sheet. We felt if we could do that we'd win as we have goals in us.

“I'm buzzing for Lyle. It was a real important goal. I'm really pleased for him. You couldn't have written it better for The Beast to wrap it up.”

Striker Tom Elliott

"I can't put it into words to be fair. Amazing, phenomenal, unbelievable. It was a great atmosphere. I'm so tired, I'm exhausted - we've just been celebrating in the changing rooms.

"Now I've got to go talk to my family, I'm literally knackered. I could sleep right now."

"The energy in the team is unbelievable. Jake Reeves and Bulman, Fuller, their legs are ridiculous. Barcham, they could run all day. We've got so much legs in the team.

Looking up: Tom Elliott

"We didn't doubt ourselves, we knew we would get one or two chances. We knew once we got the first goal, they would have to come at us.

"Then you bring on the speed merchant Ade, and he causes problems - that's what he's done all season. He won the pen, Bayo tucked it away."
