During the 2005–06 English football season, AFC Wimbledon competed in the Isthmian League Premier Division. After winning their first few games, the Dons found themselves struggling to remain in the play-off places. Following fluctuating form they eventually reached the play-offs after a 1–0 win against Anderson's former club, Hendon, on 22 April 2006. However, a 2–1 defeat at Fisher Athletic on 2 May 2006 meant no third promotion in a row. The Dons once again reached the final of the Surrey Senior Cup, losing 1–0 to Kingstonian in a fiercely contested derby.
