Tommy MooneyMOONS - JUST ANOTHER GAME
(Friday 24th February 2006)
Speaking to the press ahead of Wanderers meeting with Oxford United at Adams Park, Tommy Mooney was keen to play down any ill feeling against his former Club. He commented to the Oxford Mail, "I'm sure you (the media) would love me to stir up trouble ahead of the game, but I'm not going to do that. I wasn't at Oxford long enough to hold an affinity to the club, so to me, it's just another game that Wycombe Wanderers need to win." Mooney also said to the Bucks Free Press, "My ties with Oxford are irrelevant. All I am interested in is trying to put some wins together and getting promotion. This is a massive game for us and the only thing that matters is getting the three points." And he says he won't be affected by any abuse from the Oxford fans, adding, "It's going to be the best atmosphere that we have had this season. Oxford's fans will be very vocal, and some of that will be directed at me. I know it is not going to be kind but I have taken it off fans all my career. As far as I'm concerned it is irrelevant what they are singing as long as there's a noise. The noisier the better. I would like a vocal contest between the fans because we tend to play better in the bigger games."

MatchdayNOTTS COUNTY 1 WYCOMBE 2
(Tuesday 14th February 2006)
Wycombe went back to the top of 'League Two' after a 76th minute goal from substitute Ian Stonebridge grabbed all three points in a 2-1 victory at Notts County on Tuesday evening. Stonebridge had only been on the pitch for a few seconds when he headed home a cross from Clint Easton. Dean Bowditch had given Wycombe a deserved lead in the 31st minute when he crept in at the far post to convert a looping right wing delivery from Tommy Mooney. However, the home side got back into the game ten minutes into the second-half when a free-kick came back off the Wycombe wall and Brian O'Callaghan's return shot from around twelve yards took a deflection past Frank Talia. But Wanderers kept positive and earned their first victory in five games. Notts County 1 Wycombe 2 - Match report
Rob Lee LEE SETS RECORD
(Tuesday 14th February 2006)
Rob Lee has become the oldest player to play for Wycombe Wanderers in the Football League. Lee, who edged past the age of 40 on 1st February 2006, was named in the starting line-up for the game at Notts County on Tuesday evening and therefore beats the previous record held by Ray Wilkins. Wilkins played one game for Wycombe aged 39 years and 358 days back at the start of the 1996/97 season. Meanwhile, Lee returns to the Wycombe side after a bout of flu and having last appeared in the 2-1 victory at Bristol Rovers on New Years Eve.

If demand dictates then Cheltenham can also allocate extra seating in the stand adjacent to the facility behind the goal. There is no early purchase discount for the forthcoming games at Notts County and Boston, hence no advance tickets were taken by Wycombe.
John Gorman BOSS ISSUES STATEMENT
(Monday 13th February 2006)
John Gorman has issued a statement via the Club's official website clarifying his absence from Saturday's game. The Wycombe boss said on wwfc.com, "My wife Myra has been very ill and I have been with her at the hospital. I am pleased to say she has responded well to treatment and I shall be remaining with her all week. Naturally I realise there would be speculation as to my whereabouts last Saturday and so I think it's right to let fans know they will not see me at Notts County on Tuesday evening, and it is very unlikely I shall be at Boston United on Saturday." Gorman will continue to have the final say in team selection for these games but will leave the matchday playing side managerial activities to coaches Steve Brown, Keith Ryan and Jim Barron.
Rugby WASPS COMMENT ON GROUND
(Monday 13th February 2006)
London Wasps' Chairman Chris Wright has commented on the rugby club's plans to stay in High Wycombe. Writing in the Wasps' matchday programme for Sunday 12th February, Wright said, "The Wasps' board have recently appointed the firm of Drivers Jonas as consultants to help us drive forward our plans to assist Wycombe Wanderers Football Club in a degree of redevelopment of [Adams Park] in order that we can secure it as our home for the future." Wasps appointed the same commercial property consultants in January 2005 to assist them in a search for a new stadium and training ground in West London or the Home Counties but no progress has been reported. The Wasps' Board were due to meet their counterparts from Wanderers during January to discuss proposed expansion plans for Adams Park but this has now been rescheduled to late February/early March.
MatchdayWYCOMBE 2 MANSFIELD 2
(Saturday 11th February 2006)
Wanderers came from 2-0 down to register their 16th 'League Two' draw of the season following a 2-2 scoreline against Mansfield Town on Saturday afternoon at Adams Park. Results elsewhere saw Wanderers drop to third place in the table with Grimsby Town now holding top spot. Second half goals from Tommy Mooney and Stefan Oakes salvaged a point for Wanderers on a day when Manager John Gorman was absent due to illness of his wife. Steve Brown and Keith Ryan took charge of matchday matters. Next game for Wycombe is on Tuesday (14th February) away to Notts County (kick-off 7.45pm). Joe Burnell's early substitution against Mansfield due to a calf injury means the midfielder is doubtful for the trip to Meadow Lane. Meanwhile, Clint Easton's fifth booking of the season will see him miss next Saturday's game at Boston United.

Will Antwi returned to full training with Wanderers this week and could make his first appearance in a Wycombe shirt later this month. The defender was sent to Germany in December for treatment on groin injury and first indications are that it has been a success. It's possible that the 23 year old signed from Aldershot Town in the summer will get a run out in the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup game at Aylesbury on 21st February.
MatchdayWE WILL BOUNCE BACK
(Thursday 9th February 2006)
Coach Steve Brown is confident that Wanderers' promotion push can get back on track. Commenting to the Midweek after the Wrexham game, he said "That's the worst run we've had all season but good teams come through the bad times and we will make sure we do. We will bounce back. We were gutted to lose and to do it the way we did is hugely disappointing but one bad performance and one bad result does not make your season. We have got to keep it in perspective. We have had so few defeats. The performance was a one-off and we won't let it affect us."

News COMMUNITY DAY PLANNED
(Tuesday 7th February 2006)
The Club are planning a one game experiment where they would reallocate the 'away end' at Adams Park to youngsters associated with Wanderers' Football in the Community scheme. The home game with Torquay United on Saturday 18th March has been earmarked for such an event where travelling supporters for the Devon club would be reallocated in alternative seating. It's understood that the Club will attempt to distribute the 2,000 tickets for the 'away end' free of charge through local schools and associations. A planning obligation introduced in May 2000 restricting the Hillbottom Road end stand to use of 'away end' fans only means that the idea will only likely be given the thumbs up as a one-off by the relevant authorities.

Matt Duke DUKE RECALLED BY HULL
(Monday 6th February 2006)
Hull City have invoked their recall clause for Matt Duke following the previously reported injury to their second choice 'keeper Sergio Leite. City boss Peter Taylor was forced to name Youth Teamer Curtis Aspden as cover for first choice 'keeper Boaz Myhill for his side's visit Luton Town on Saturday as an earlier recall was not possible under the 28 day rule. John Gorman will now have to decide to bring in another 'Emergency Loan' prior to Saturday's meeting with Mansfield Town at Adams Park or return Frank Talia or Steve Williams between the sticks. There is no limit to the number of players a club can register on 'Emergency Loan' during a season, although only five loans of any category can appear on a club's team sheet for any single match. To further clarify the loan rules, the recall earlier in the season of Everton 'keeper Iain Turner within the 28 day period was due to different arrangements in place for loans from Premiership clubs.
Wycombe Wanderers Supporters TrustTRUST TARGET IN SIGHT
(Monday 6th February 2006)
Wycombe Wanderers' Supporters' Trust are now less than 3,000 away from raising the necessary 50,000 second installment to secure its shareholding in the PLC and hence maintain its PLC Board position. The Club have recently confirmed the deadline for paying this second installment as 24th February 2006. This follows a renewed fund raising campaign launched during January which resulted in further membership uptake and more existing members converting to life membership. Figures confirmed over the weekend of 4th February had the total membership at 240, with 77 life members and the total now raised at 47,291. A spokesman for the Trust commented, "The response to the life membership has been excellent and the uptake of regular membership is now beginning to gain momentum. Reaching the 50,000 milestone by the February deadline would be a fantastic achievement and we urge fellow supporters to consider joining the Trust." More info at www.wwst.org

(Saturday 4th February 2006)
Carlisle United took over top spot in 'League Two' on goal difference on Saturday after they thrashed Chester City 5-0 at home following Wanderers 2-0 reverse at Wrexham earlier in the day. Grimsby Town are also level on points with Wycombe having beaten Notts County 1-0 at Meadow Lane. All three clubs now sit on 54 points having all played 31 games. Current form side Northampton Town are one point behind the leading trio as the race for promotion continues to become tighter by the week.
MatchdayWREXHAM 2 WYCOMBE 0
(Saturday 4th February 2006)
Wanderers have now gone four games without a victory in 'League Two' after going down 2-0 in the 1pm kick-off at Wrexham on Saturday. The Welsh side scored both their goals in the first half and there was little serious response from Wycombe. An inswinging corner from the left by Matt Crowell on 12 minutes saw Denis Lawrence given space to rise and head past Matt Duke for the opener and Aston Villa loanee Sam Williams superbly headed home at the far post three minutes later to leave Wycombe chasing the game. Wanderers will now look to get the promotion chase back on track when they take on Mansfield Town at Adams Park next Saturday (11th February), kick-off 3pm.

Matt Duke NO RECALL YET FOR DUKE
(Friday 3rd February 2006)
A midweek injury to second choice Hull City 'keeper Sergio Leite raised fears amongst some Wycombe followers that City's on loan 'keeper Matt Duke could be recalled by his parent club ahead of Wanderers' visit to Wrexham. Original reports derived from official statements by both clubs indicated that Duke could be recalled at 'any time' during his three month loan period but COTN can now confirm that Football League rules state that no break clause can be activated in the first 28 days of any 'Emergency loan'. Duke's 28 day period ends on 9th February and Hull have yet to make a decision of whether to recall him at this point. Leite, who has been a regular on the bench for City this season, went off with a suspected broken hand in a County Cup tie against North Feriby United. His and Duke's unavailability will likely force City boss Peter Taylor to name Youth Teamer Curtis Aspden as cover for first choice 'keeper Boaz Myhill when his side visit Luton Town on Saturday.
Danny Senda LUTON SENDA BID REJECTED
(Friday 3rd February 2006)
Wanderers turned down a transfer window bid for Danny Senda from Luton Town according to reports in the Bucks Free Press. Senda was denied permission to talk to the Championsip side but commented to the BFP, "I'm not disapppointed because the club is doing so well at the moment. Maybe it would have been nice to find out what they were talking about but I'm happy here at the moment" The 24 year old is thought to be close to agreeing a new deal with Wycombe and says he wants to concentration on promotion with Wycombe but added, "We are top of the league and I am happy but I won't deny that if it comes to the summer and bigger clubs are interested, then I would possibly look at that."

News NEW CLUB SHOP APPLICATION
(Thursday 2nd February 2006)
The Club have now formally applied to Wycombe District Council for planning permission for a new Club Shop at Adams Park. The proposed shop, which will replace the temporary structure currently in the car park, will be incorporated into the current office and reception area at the ground. The structure will include a new glazed entrance canopy, new entrance door to reception, new pedestrian walkway, low level 900mm high illuminated bollards in front of the proposed shop and alterations to the car parking layout. The plans are likely to go before a Development Control Committee meeting towards the end of the March 2006, with the ambition of the Club to have it completed for the start of the 2006/7 season. As reported bu COTN at the beginning of January 2006, these plans are being submitted seperately to any ground extension plans being proposed as part of London Wasps' ground requirements. Those plans have still to be finalised.
PLC News FUTURE VISION AT PLC AGM
(Wednesday 1st February 2006)
Wanderers' Directors Brian Kane and Steve Hayes revealed the Club's 'Future vision' during a presentation made after the first Annual General Meeting of the PLC held on Wednesday evening at Adams Park. As expected, the formal business of the AGM saw all the tabled resolutions passed. The only contentious issue of dis-applying pre-emption rights brought a show of hands on the evening that voted against this resolution but the subsequent paper ballot called by the major shareholders saw the 'money men' pull rank and weigh in with 927,820 votes for, compared to 125,626 against. The passing of this resolution, along with another change that now allows Directors the power to allot shares, will pave the way for additional shareholders, as previously mentioned by Steve Hayes, to come into the Club. The presentation, titled, 'Mission, Vision and Values' will be posted to shareholders in the near future. Manager John Gorman was unable to attend the AGM due to a family illness.
News RUN OUT FOR TRIALLISTS
