1887 is now formally excepted as the real formation date of the Club. Extensive research for the Official History book published in 1996 pinned down this date although many sources still quote 1884.
Wycombe Wanderers were, almost without doubt, named after the famous Wanderers, the first winners of the FA Cup in 1872. The first colours were the varsity colours of Oxford and Cambridge and the first 'proper' shirts were light and dark blue halves. The now famous quarters were introduced in the late 1920's. The first games were played on The Rye, High Wycombe Cricket Club and Spring Gardens before a 100 year plus stint at Loakes Park.
We will be adding stories from the history of the Club on a regular basis and if you haven't already obtained a copy, take a look at the book below.
