As a result of a joint Trust / Ex-Players Association initiative, Wycombe Wanderers are delighted to announce that Martin O’Neill (remember him?) has agreed to appear in the Vere Suite at Adams Park on Monday 24th September for an entertaining evening featuring a Q&A session, hosted by Alan Hutchinson.
Martin became manager of Wycombe Wanderers in February 1990. In the 1990–91 season, he took us to fifth in the Football Conference. In the 1991–92 season, he led us to 2nd place in the Conference, losing out to Colchester United only on goal difference. The following season, he took us into the Football League for the very first time. In the 1993–94 season, we had a second successive promotion via the Division 3 play-offs and a 4–2 win over Preston North End took us up into Division 2. In the 1994–95 season, we narrowly missed out on the Division 2 play-offs and he left Adams Park on 13 June 1995 to become manager at Norwich City. Oh yes, and Martin also won the FA Trophy with us in 1991 and 1993. So, a kind of OK manager, don’t you think!!!!
The evening, which will kick off at 7.30, comes on the exact date, 125 years ago, that Wycombe Wanderers played its’ first game in 1887 and follows just two days after our home game against AFC Wimbledon, which we have chosen to officially mark our 125th anniversary.
Tickets, priced at £12.50 for Trust members and Platinum Card holders and £15 for non members, are on sale now and can be booked by contacting the Ticket Office on 01494 441118 or book online at https://tickets.wwfc.com
The reduced price for Trust members is just a small thank you for your continuing support. Any children attending must be aged 12 or over.
Our aim has been to keep the cost of the evening affordable so that as many of us as possible can enjoy this special event and so, food can be bought on the night and of course, the bar, with its’ reduced prices, will be open throughout.
Spaces are limited, so book your places now for an evening of Irish charm, wit and perhaps the inside track on some of the players that enjoyed life during Martin’s five year reign. Some members of that squad might also attend, so it should be lively few hours.
