Chairboys in the Cup Wanderers v Liverpool
FA Cup Semi-Final 2001
(Friday 6th April 2001)
NorwayThe Wanderers have a new dedicated website and it's completely in Norwegian. Tor Idar Aune, a former player for Varden and now a journalist in Norway set up the site on the day of the historic victory over Leicester and has also formed a fan club that already boasts a membership into double figures.

27 year old Tori has been following Wycombe's results since they joined the Football League in 1993. He told Chairboys on the Net "I followed the team checking out the result every Monday in the newspaper the following season. When I saw Wycombe go up again, I was sure of the fact that I had found a new club to follow in English football." The first Wycombe player Tori had heard of was Keith Scott. "At Swindon Scott played up front together with the Norwegian striker Jan Aage Fjortoft" He's also aware of the current Norwegian connection at Wycombe through Youth Team boss Gary Goodchild "He was a fantastic goalscorer for Viking in Stavanger, and we are hoping to get in touch with him"

Tori, who keeps in touch with news via Chairboys on the Net and the Mailing List, is now hoping that membership of the Norwegian Fan Club will be boosted further still by the publicity surrounding the game with Liverpool at Villa Park. The match will be first time that Wycombe have been featured live on Norwegian TV. "We have been working the last week to get  information about the club presented in newspapers, radio, TV and internet. We hope this will help us to get more members, but remember every football player in Norway has a favourite team from the birth, and mostly its the big team like Liverpool and Man United."

Tori has yet to travel to England to watch Wycombe due to the cost of travel, however, he'll be teaming up with fellow fan club members on the day of the Semi-Final. "We will be watching TV, drinking some pints of beer and personally I will wear my Paul McCarthy teamshirt"

A message from Tori in to fellow Norwegians: "Velkommen inn i Wycombes supporterklubb i Norge. Ta kontakt med det samme"
