|NEW SPONSORS REVEALED
(Tuesday 24th June 2003)
Wanderers are set to announce Loans.co.uk as the new kit sponsors in a press conference on Wednesday. It's understood the new deal is for two years but falls short of the £60,000 per year asking price that the Club set in its original quest to find a replacement for Integrity Software. The sponsors name was revealed after the club replaced entrance signs at Adams Park with the name of the new sponsors already in place.
Wanderers quest to find a new shirt sponsor began in February 2003 shortly after it was announced that Integrity Software were opting out of their sponsorship agreement after just one season. A number of companies had been targetted from a very wide area but a new deal seem to prove elusive. Sources even suggest that a potential deal fell through in March due to a European based company being affected by financial cut-backs as a result of the war in Iraq.
The Club are remaining tip lipped on the financial details of the tie-up with the Watford based company other than stating to the press that it was a "a very good deal". Loans.co.uk have sponsored the Club on a smaller scale in the past, with their most recent involvement being the Ten Year anniversary dinner at Adams Park. The new kit is expected to be available for the first home pre-season friendly against Spurs on Saturday 19th July.

In a seperate sponsorship deal, the controversial move to drop the name of Adams Park and replace it with a sponsors name has gone a step further with the Midweek Bucks Free Press revealing that Loudwater based software company Causeway Technologies are set to strike a three year deal for a loosely termed "six figure" sum. The move, that will see Adams Park renamed to The Causeway Stadium for the term of the deal, has angered many Wanderers followers but Causeway Chief Executive Phil Brown was quoted in the press as saying "If it is taken as a negative by some people that's fine but Wycombe had to plug the gap left by their previous shirt sponsors." Also in an effort to placate the feeling of supporters, he added "I understand the disappointment of fans in having to lose the Adams Park name but the club are retaining and preserving the name in terms of catering and other activities".
