|ANOTHER LANDMARK FOR JESUS
(Saturday 1st December 2001)
Wanderers' legend Dave Carroll has reached another landmark with Wycombe after making his 300th Football League appearance mark when he came on as a late substitute during the home game with Brentford on Saturday 1st December.
Last season Carroll scored his 100th First Team goal for Wycombe and he's also only a few appearances short of making his 600th First Team appearance for The Wanderers. It's now been confirmed that Carroll is now three short of the 600 mark after the appearance against Brentford and he now stands as the third highest appearance maker in the 114 year history of The Wanderers; Tony Horseman (749) and John Maskell (616) leading the way in the Wanderers roll of honour.
In the Wanderers Football League hall of fame, Carroll heads the list but Jason Cousins and Steve Brown are hot on his heels with 289 and 288 appearances respectively. Keith Ryan (240) and Martin Taylor (202) are next down the list as at 1st December 2001.
Carroll has now been with Wycombe for a staggering 13 years since a £5,000 move from Ruislip Manor. Many wrote him off when he missed much of last season through injury but he's still able to weave his magic, all be it a little slower. He was given a one year extension to his contract last season and many are tipping Carroll to move into the coaching position at Wycombe when his playing days are finally up. With current Reserve Team boss Michael Forysth set to take temporary charge of Wycombe's Youth Team, the opportunity to move into that vacant role is being muted by those close to the Club.
