NEW CONTRACT FOR SANCHEZ
(Monday 16th October 2000)
Wycombe Manager Lawrie Sanchez has been awarded a new contract that extends until the end of the 2003/2004 season. Club Chairman Ivor Beeks announced the new deal at the Club AGM at Adams Park on Monday 16th October.
Beeks told members "Our choice of Manager some 20 months ago has certainly been justified" and adding that "Lawrie has put the word 'compete' back into the team".
Sanchez and Beeks have been negotiating the deal since last May and it was finalised shortly before the AGM and announced to Club members along with details of new financing ideas that the Board hope will take the Club forward.
Beeks told members "When you have a first class manager you seem to be associated with a lot of those changes but I can assure you that we will resist any attempts to prise away our asset which clearly others see has great potential"
Sanchez revealed that negotiations had centered around the increased funding that would be made available to him under the new set-up. Sanchez said "I've told the squad that I want to be a play-off position this season, that's our target. But if we aren't then this time next year I want to have a stronger squad and be going for the Championship. In the course of my contract here I expect this team to be in the First Division."
Sanchez joined Wycombe in February 1999 and is now the longest serving Manager since Martin O'Neill. The new contract could see Sanchez out run O'Neill's time with Wycombe and if the Holy Grail of the First Division is reached then he'll be remembered in the same way as the Irishman.
