Fans Meeting in Scores Bar – Wednesday 29 October at 6.30pm

As previously announced, we are replacing our November informal Scores meeting with an event for our younger fans on the Wednesday of half term week, starting at the earlier time of 6.30pm.

The attractions will include:

  • Appearances from Gareth Ainsworth and several of the players
  • A free raffle to win a match ball
  • A prize competition – we are inviting our younger fans to write a report on Saturday’s Dagenham and Redbridge match and bring it along to be judged on the night.

The best entry in the ’10 year olds and younger’ category will win the chance to be a mascot at a future home match and for the ‘11 year olds and older’, the winning entry will be published in the match day programme (max. 500 words).

If you have children or grandchildren, please bring them (and their friends) along. It doesn’t matter if they are Trust members or not and there is no obligation to enter the prize competition – everyone will get to meet the players and to enter the free raffle.


Badges For Sale on Saturday

WWFC v DAGENHAMDespite Terry and ‘Tav’ choosing to be at AFC Wimbledon vs Tranmere game, their badge stall will still be present on Saturday when we take on Dagenham and Redbridge.

All his range of Wycombe Wanderers themed badges should be on sale so do go and see Terry’s brother in law (Alan) who will be running the stall from just inside the Adams Park gates – opposite the Food Shack stall.

The Matchday Badges sell for just £3 each with all profits going to the WW Trust.

WycombevCambridge201409272544Similarly we receive funds from the sale of a number of other Wycombe Wanderers themed badges that will be on sale at the same stall. Also if you have missed any of the Matchday badges from earlier games this season (or last season) then Alan will have them for you.



News From The Boardroom

The Wycombe Wanderers Trust (“WWT”) Board met on Wednesday 15th October for their regular monthly meeting.

Andrew Howard as WWFC Chairman attended for the first part of the meeting and updated the WWT Board on various football club matters.

There are many new initiatives being formulated which WWFC will announce in due course, including the announcement of a new sponsor (Bucks New University) being obtained for the Valley End Terrace. Click here for more on that story.

The Trust has so far received about £2,500 from the Snowdon and Ben Nevis sponsored climbs undertaken by members this year. There is still more to come.

The WWT Community Share Offer Scheme document is now very close to completion with the new budgets included. This has to have HMRC approval for the EIS tax relief before we can formally launch the Share Scheme. The aim is still to launch this in November and we will combine this with a Trust Members Update Meeting.

Matchday Badge sales have so far produced a profit of £730 from the first 7 home games.

The Trust is also getting  further income from the use of Easyfundraising.com for online shopping.

Plans are now being finalised for the next informal Fans Night on Wednesday 29th October starting at 6.30pm in ‘Scores’. The emphasis this time will be on our younger fans for whom there will be age-related competitions with prizes to be won. More to be announced shortly on this event.

The renewal of the former Loakes Park WW1 memorial plaque is proving more costly than was hoped. If anyone knows of a company that could provide this service to us, then please get in touch with Keith Blagbrough.

The next AGM of the Trust will be held in February 2015.

The WWT Directors collectively have sponsored the away shirt of Peter Murphy.


Get Your ‘Silly Little Dream’ Car Sticker next Saturday

Car sticker (2)A group of loyal Wycombe Wanderers fans have come up with some new fund-raising ideas under the ‘Silly Little Dream’ banner.

The first of these will see car stickers going on sale from near the Adams Park gates before the Dagenham home game for £1.50 each. They currently have 70 or so in stock from an initial 100 batch. You can email pressroom1887@hotmail.com if they would like one posted or ordered for you

The Trust and the Football Club are willing to support this independent initiative and are pleased to see its fans making efforts to spread the good word of Wycombe Wanderers and hope they will come on board with our own efforts – when they’re ready. Plans for a major marketing campaign starting in December are now well under way within the  Football Club.

The Daleks Have Arrived at AP…………. and St George!

WWFC2Terry will also have two WWFC badges based on the St Georges Flag – one in traditional red and white and the other in light and dark blue.
