WWFC v PORTSMOUTHAdams Park is likely to attract one of its biggest crowds of the season for Saturday’s fixture, with Portsmouth expected to sell out their allocation in the Panache Stand.

Last season for this game, we completely sold out of Matchday Badges, so make sure you get yours early by visiting Terry’s Badges stall just inside the Adams Park gates.

WYCOMBE SNOWMENTerry and ‘Tav’ will also have the few remaining badges from our games earlier this season in case you have missed any of those, plus various special badges produced with the light and dark blue colours

Terry also carries a large stock of hard-to-find non-league badges so his stall is worth a visit.

The Trust has just received this message from Margaret Pearson on behalf of Cambridge Fans United;

We are looking forward to Wycombe Wanderers’  visit to the R Costings Abbey Stadium on Saturday 7th February.

Cambridge Fans United have produced an information sheet (available through this link: http://www.cambridgefansunited.org/away-supporters-information.html  ) which we hope will be of help to your supporters planning to attend the game. There are details of parking, routes to the ground and contact numbers.

In particular, we can provide a commentary for visually impaired supporters. You need to book in advance – all the details are on the attachment.

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Pearson

Cambridge United has always been a very hospitable club and the facilities for away fans have improved over the years since the opening of their South Stand in 2002. I well remember standing on the Allotments End Terrace before that!

Hope lots of Chairboys fans can make the trip.
