Ex-Players Returned for the Big Game

More than 30 former Wycombe Wanderers players were present for the match vs AFC Wimbledon.

Many of the greats who have worn the famous Light and Dark Blue colours arrived for lunch but then split into groups to meet as many fans in as many locations as practical.  The Ex-Players were announced on the pitch before kick off and then watched the match from Block V of the Main Stand. We welcomed back the Club’s former Press Officer Alan Hutchinson (pictured right) to assist with this.

Some of the Club’s memorabilia was on display in the ‘alcove’ outside the Legends Lounge and there was a great deal of interest shown by WW supporters keen to learn more about our long history.

Tony “Bodger” Horseman and David “Jesus” Carroll delivered the match ball to the centre spot in time for kick off.

There was plenty of other activities going on, especially for the youngsters with face painting (free of charge) and the release of 125 balloons from the centre circle.

8-3 as the Wycombe Legends Roll Back The Years

The word LEGEND is often over used but those Wycombe fans who have been following the Club through the last 20 years or so, will surely agree that the squad put together for today’s special fixture contained many Wanderers to whom that honour is  certainly justified.

 The Wycombe Legends took on the Ex-Royals (of Reading FC) in a special fixture that kicks off our 125th anniversary celebrations and a most entertaining game ended with a 8-3 win for the Wycombe Legends.  The visitors took the lead before Scott McGleish equalised late in the first half. However once Tommy Mooney, Darren Currie and Kevin Keen has stretched the lead to 4-1, the result was never in doubt, Keen’s goal going in off Stuart Beavon senior, who was a second half substitute for the Royals. The Reading side did pull one back but further Wycombe goals kept coming courtesy of Keith Scott and Matt Edwards (penalty)  before McGleish and Currie each scored again. Beavon made up for his own goal with a penalty just before the end.

Amongst the Legends were Dave Carroll, Mark West, Keith Scott, Keith Ryan, Paul Hyde, Matt Crossley, Glyn Creaser, Jason Cousins, Tommy Mooney, Miguel deSouza, Simon Stapleton, Kevin Keen, Steve Guppy, Scott McGleish, Steve Thompson, Mark West, Darren Currie to name but some. They were joined by Wycombe fans Simon Page and Matt Edwards who had each won the right to appear in this star studded line up
