Those who came along were delighted to meet and chat with ‘The Gaffer’  Gareth Ainsworth plus 3 players – Matt Ingram, Max Kretzschmar and Sam Wood, all of whom had given up their free time to attend. The players posed for photographs and signed autographs for some of the younger fans.

Also present was the new Head of Wycombe Wanderers Sports and Education Trust, Gerald Kelly who whilst still only being a few weeks into his new role, spoke briefly of his plans for taking WWSET forward. More can be found on their website www.wwset.co.uk

There was a free raffle among the younger fans and a match report writing competition – the results of which will be published soon.

As pictured above left to right WWFC Head of Media Matt Cecil, chaired an informative Q&A session with  Trust Chairman Trevor Stroud, Gareth Ainsworth and WWFC Chairman Andrew Howard.

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.

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

DALEKTo go along with the successful sale of Matchday Badges, we have commissioned some additional Wycombe Wanderers badges to be sold from the Terry’s Badges stall just inside Adams Park.

The first (recognising the new Doctor Who series on TV) is a Dalek badge in light and dark blue colours. These have been sold at other grounds and been very popular with both kids and adults!

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.

WWFC4The Dalek and St Georges badges will retail at £3 each of which £2 will be going to the WW Trust.
