Matt Shines on Sky Sports News

Matt SSN 18.4.14Prior to the Good Friday clash with Northampton Town, WWFC Director Matt Cecil was interviewed live from Adams Park by the presenter of the Sky Sports News lunchtime show.

Asked how the nerves were before such a big game, Matt said there was a mixture of excitement, nerves but confidence around the place. Neither Wycombe nor Northampton had expected to be in this position at the start of the season but results had not gone their way. With 4 games each to go at that stage it was not quite ‘do or die’.

When asked about recent form of both sides, Matt said that in such situations the form book can go out of the window and teams at the bottom pick up unexpected results. It is a question of who can be at their best on any given day.

Finally the interviewer asked if the club was preparing for the possibility of non-league football again after a stay of 20 years in the Football League. Matt said that you have to consider the worse case scenario. The fantastic legacy of the 1993-94 team under Martin O’Neill was still talked about at the club almost on a daily basis but in no way did we want to slip back out of the league. He believed that we can survive the next 4 games and push on next season. The club and team would be giving it a real good go to ensure the worst does not happen!

During the short interview, the music being played over the club tannoy was “Don’t Stop Believin’”

The Big Climb: Lisa and David are Climbing Snowdon and ‘Gaz’ is Behind Them! Please Show Your Support with Sponsorship.

As previously reported here, Wrexham Football Club celebrates its 150th Anniversary this year and it is organising a number of events to celebrate this, as well as raising much needed funds for their club.

Wrexham is a 100% fans owned club and rely heavily on fans contributions, and with this in mind they are seeking our help in promoting an event that will give other Supporters Trusts a chance to raise funds for their own group or club.

Snowdon2For the past three years, Wrexham fans have climbed to the highest point in Wales, Snowdon, as a fundraiser, raising close to £40,000. However, this year they are limiting the number of Wrexham fans making the walk to 150! This is where we, as WWFC fans come in…….

They are looking for 150 other Supporters Trusts or groups to join them in making the walk on behalf of their own Trust or group, to raise funds for their own organisation. They asked for no more than two fans per Trust or group to register for the walk and for them to collect sponsorship  for their own organisation.

The walk is to take place on Sunday 29th June 2014, and the ascent will start from the Pen-Y-Pass car park up the Miners Track route at 10am. Wrexham Supporters Trust will put on coaches departing from Wrexham at 8am, as there is minimal parking at the Pen-Y-Pass car park.

20140401_132421David Roberton 2We therefore have been invited as a Supporters Trust to put representatives forward for this walk as soon as possible and, within hours of receiving this invitation from Wrexham, we received expressions of interest from several regular fans and Trust members.  Lisa Bowker (left) and Trust and WWFC Director David Roberton were the first two to volunteer, any unsuccessful names are being held in reserve.

Sponsorship of Lisa and David is now very important and to assist them in this aim, we suggest that, if you are prepared to offer your support, you email the Trust at secretary@wycombewandererstrust.com confirming who you wish to sponsor and by how much and this will be forwarded to Lisa or David. 

20140401_132315Both Gareth Ainsworth and Richard Dobson have already signed up to sponsor Lisa and ‘Gaz’ is shown (right) about to sign her form.

 

FrankQuite separately, another loyal supporter Frank Burton (pictured left) is climbing Ben Nevis on 20 September, and is also keen to raise funds for the Trust.

Frank and his wife celebrate 25 years wed this year along with two very good friends.  As they are all fast approaching fifty they wanted to do something special and to show they are not past it.  They are mainly doing the Ben Nevis climb for fun but Frank has seized upon the opportunity to try and raise some much needed cash for his football club at the same time.

Anyone wishing to sponsor Frank, should contact the Trust as above i.e by an email to secretary@wycombewandererstrust.com

Matchday Badges – Update

Wycombe v NorthamptonOur local supplier has yet to take delivery of the Badges for the WWFC vs Northampton game on Good Friday.

His consignment of these and many other badges has ‘gone missing’ between point of  import and his address.

We will still be getting the Bristol Rovers badges  and will have these (along with hopefully the Northampton ones) on sale at our final home match on Saturday 26th April.

We still have some left from the games with Accrington, Fleetwood, Chesterfield, Plymouth, Rochdale, Hartlepool and Dagenham and these will be on sale from the Trust table in the Vere Suite tomorrow as usual.

Apologies to all our regular ‘customers’ and collectors but this one is really beyond our control!

Following the recent (Members Update 20th March) announcement by the Trust of the intention to launch the above scheme, it is heartening to report that interest and commitment has increased since that initial request. However, there is still much to be done if we are to realise our target of raising £2m over the next five years.

The Trust greatly appreciates the commitment shown by those who have already pledged their support and would urge those of you who are able but who are, as yet, undecided to consider the details of the offer that can be found here Community Share Scheme

Please note that the deadline for indicating your interest has now been extended by one month to 30th April 2014. However, don’t delay, please do it today!

Four Easy Ways Every Wycombe Fan Can Help

There are four very simple and cheap ways in which fans can easily inject some much needed cash into the Club’s coffers and in two cases also put yourself in with a chance of winning some money back:-

  • Buy a 50/50 ticket at each home game (or even an extra one).

The 50/50 Matchday Draw has now been running for a number of years and is a hugely popular part of the half-time entertainment at Adams Park. Following every home game, the lucky number will be published on wwfc.com. Tickets for the matchday draw are on sale around the ground, in the bars and executive boxes at £1 each.

  • Join the Blues Cashline Weekly Draw

Again just £1 will give you a chance to win a prize of £525 which is paid out each week.
We have an ‘army’ of door to door ticket sellers for this lottery  or you can pay the easier way by bank standing order every 3, 6 or 12 months – that’s just £52 per year!
Click here for more details and the application form (we have asked for this to be updated!)

  • Buy a Match Day Programme “Quarters”

A lot of effort and hard work is put in by our media team to produce the programme that has been voted one of the best in League Two. Previously the printer would also sell the programme for us but now this is down to us for which we are using volunteers from OWWSA and Trust Members. So all profits on the programme will now go into the club’s funds.

  • Buy a Matchday Badge for just £3. 

These have proved very popular with our fans and with some of the visiting supporters too.

Every little helps YOUR CLUB!
