The first truly competitive meeting between Wycombe Wanderers and Sutton United came in a 2nd Round Amateur Cup tie at Sutton in February 1962. A dramatic game saw Wanderers run out 4-1 winners, with all five scored in the final 13 minutes. Peter James and Len Worley netted two quick goals for Wycombe on 78 and 80 minutes. Then on 83 minutes Paul Bates scored from the penalty spot after a handball by a home defender. Percy Vince pulled a goal back for United with a few minutes remaining but Bates added a fourth for Wanderers to earn a third round tie with Wimbledon.

The two clubs met at League level for the first time in November 1963 with an Isthmian League meeting at Gander Green Lane. League encounters at this level would ensue for the next 22 years, with many significant players swopping the shirts during that time - most notably, Larry Pritchard, Keith Blunt and Ted Powell - all of which came to Loakes Park during the Brian Lee era at Wanderers in the late 1960's and early 1970's.


Another famous connection between the two sides is coach Sid Cann. Cann led Wanderers to Isthmian League championships in 1956 and 1957, plus a Wembley Stadium appearance in the 1957 FA Amateur Cup Final. He left Wycombe in July 1961 to pursue a coaching appointment at Norwich City but returned to non-League football in July 1962 to lead Sutton United to the Final of the FA Amateur Cup in 1963. Cann would eventually led United to an Isthmian League title in 1967 and a further Amateur Cup Final in 1969. His long tenure at Sutton also included a famous FA Cup run in the 1969/70 season which ended with a home defeat to Leeds United in the 4th Round.
