During the 1990–91 English football season, Wimbledon F.C. competed in the Football League First Division.

Season summary

In the 1990-91 season under Harford's first full campaign in charge, Warren Barton was purchased for £300,000 whilst in the league, Wimbledon had another strong season, finishing in 7th place.

Nothing came of the plans for a new ground and at the end of the season, Wimbledon's board decided that Plough Lane was beyond redevelopment to meet the new FA rule requiring all-seater stadiums.[1] Consequently, the club moved to Selhurst Park before the start of next season, ground-sharing with Crystal Palace.
