BRISTOL R 2 WYCOMBE 3
(Saturday 30th January 2010)
Wanderers improved their chances of 'League One' survival with a hard fought 3-2 victory at Bristol Rovers on Saturday - Stuart Beavon grabbing the winning goal with nine mintes left on the clock. It was Wycombe's first League win since 5th December and the first success on the road since 21st November at Millwall. Wanderers opened the scoring in the 15th minute when Rovers' Stuart Campbell was penalised for a handball and Matt Harrold stepped up to squeeze the ball past Mikkel Anderson in the Rovers goal. Wanderers debutant Alex Revell saw a shot parried away by Anderson on 27 minutes but as Wycombe appeared to sit back on their lead, the home side scored twice through Chris Lines to lead at the interval. The first came on 40 minutes when Lines sent a curling free-kick from just outside the area past former Rovers 'keeper Scott Shearer. The same player then made it 2-1 to Rovers a minute before the break with a 19 yard right footed strike into the top corner of the net after Wanderers had failed to clear a Rovers attack. However, Wycombe were level three minutes after the restart with a another spot-kick, this time for a foul on Beavon by Danny Coles and this time it was Revell who converted the penalty - sending Anderson the wrong way with a confident kick. It was then left for Beavon to grab the winner on 81 minutes with a near post header from a corner by Dean Keates. Wanderer remain second from bottom in table but now with a five point gap to exit the relegation zone. Next match, at home to Yeovil Town on Saturday (6th Feb). Wycombe: Shearer, Woodman, Hinshelwood, Mousinho, Westwood, Betsy, Keates, Beavon (sub 89 Oliver), Harrold, Payne, Revell (sub 82 Pittman) - subs not used: Arnold, Montrose, Green, Harris, Phillips - Att:6,688 (away 442)
(Friday 29th January 2010)
Gary Waddock has indicated that he wants to re-sign Gareth Ainsworth from QPR. His original loan to Wycombe was cut short by injury but he is close to a return to match fitness and the Wycombe boss has told QPR pf his interest in the 36 year old. Aimsworth commented to the Bucks Free Press, "I don't know when or what's going to happen...I've kept in touch with Gary and I really enjoyed my time at Wycombe and I think Gary Waddock is going to a top manager one day". Meanwhile, Wycombe are reported to have failed with a second bid for Aldershot midfielder Scott Donnelly. The original bid was said to be £15,000 and the new offer, although not published, was not enough either. Wanderers have also failed with a £50,000 bid for Donnelly's team-mate Marvin Morgan and with the transfer deadline fast approaching will have to act quick to tie up any permanent deals.
TRAVEL MEETINGS RESUMED
(Friday 29th January 2010)
The Club have reinstated their Travel Plan meetings after an absence of more than two years. Representatives from Wycombe Wanderers, London Wasps, Wycombe District Council, Bucks County Council and Thames Valley Police attended a meeting held on Wednesday 27th January at Adams Park. With the proposed ground move high in the public spotlight, the audience included residents from both Sands and Booker but meeting Chairman Tony Fookes said that 'none of the panel were in a position to make any comment on the new stadium, including the reps from WW and LW.' However, Peter Wear, Financial Director of Wasps, said that, 'the current ground is not big enough for our needs' but also confirmed that proposals by 'Premier Rugby Limited' to impose a minimum stadium capacity of 15,000 were unlikely to be enforced because of the significant number of high profile clubs still not meeting that requirement (eg Bath). Meanwhile, Richard Stanford, Safety Officer for the Wanderers, added that the cost of adding any suggested new access road at Adams Park would be 'astronomical'. Tony Fookes said he would contact both clubs with a view to having a statement regarding the ground move available for the next meeting.
RESERVES WIN AT WINDSOR
(Wednesday 27th January 2010)
A Wanderers XI beat Windsor & Eton 1-0 on Wednesday evening to progress to the semi-final of the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup. The only goal of the game came in the 89th minute from a Matt McClure header following an assist from substitute Jerome Federico. Wycombe's starting line-up for the tie with a side managed by former Wanderer Keith Scott included First Teamers Luke Oliver, Michael Duberry, Matt Phillips and Stuart Green. Wanderers will now face old rivals Slough Town in the semi-final. Wycombe: Brennan, Cobb (sub 60 O'Regan), Oliver, Duberry, Montrose (sub HT Belcher), Green, Phillips, Harris (sub 80 Feberico), Daly, Fitchett, McClure - subs not used: Ingram, Scowen
PRESS ON NEW STADIUM
(Wednesday 27th January 2010)
The Bucks Free Press website has published its latest take on the new stadium proposals for Wanderers and London Wasps. The article suggests that Wycombe District Council would help fund the project through the sale of other Council land. Deputy Leader of WDC, Tony Green, is quoted as saying, “It is an effort to keep the club [London Wasps] in the town and give the town and district a facility it hasn’t got. The council would have a ‘degree of ownership’ by leasing the land to a stadium company, of which WDC would have a stake". No plans have yet been made public on the scheme but it's now suggested that the site would also host cricket, hockey and indoor sports. As previously reported on COTN, WDC are due to meet on 8th February to vote if the project should go ahead. More than £700,000 has been allocated for the feasibilty study and project initiation for a site yet to be confirmed but understood to be Booker Air Park.
KEEPER SENT BACK TO CITY
(Tuesday 26th January 2010)
Bristol City goalkeeper Stephen Henderson has returned to The Robins after just one day of the training at the Wanderers. Earlier reports originating from the BBC website suggested that he had agreed a loan deal until with Wycombe until the end of the 2009/2010 season but the Bucks Free Press website has since reported that Gary Waddock couldn't agree with City's requirement to guarantee him First Team football and therefore sent him back. The 21 year old moved to City in the summer of 2007 from Aston Villa but has been limited to two substitute appearances for the First Team and gained experience via loan spells at York City and Weymouth. Waddock has said that he is happy to keep Steve Arnold as his understudy to Scott Shearer.
SOUTHEND 1 WYCOMBE 1
(Saturday 23rd January 2010)
West Ham loanee Josh Payne scored on his Wanderers debut as Gary Waddock's side drew 1-1 at
Southend United on Saturday. Payne struck from outside the box on 64 minutes to draw the scores level after Alan McCormack had given the home side the lead four minutes earlier when he headed home from close range. Payne was in the starting line-up in place of the Jon-Paul Pittman who cried off pre-match with a groin strain. Dean Keates in for loan expired Scott Davies and Kevin Betsy in favour of Stuart Green were the other changes to the starting line-up for Wycombe. Following Payne's equaliser, both sides had chances to take all the three points with Matt Harrold missing a great chance on 77 minutes with a header from inside the penalty area for Wycombe. Wanderers remain second bottom in the table with the next game away to Bristol Rovers next Saturday (30th January). Wycombe: Shearer, Woodman, Hinshelwood, Mousinho, Westwood, Hunt, Betsy, Keates, Beavon, Harrold, Payne (sub 82 Phillips) - subs not used: Arnold, Oliver, Green, Fitchett, Harris (only 6 subs named) - Att:6,675 (away 382)
HAMMER ON LOAN
(Friday 22nd January 2010)
Wanderers have continued a busy few days of transfer activity with the loan signing of West Ham midfielder Josh Payne. The 19 year old originally played in the youth set-ups with Portsmouth and Southampton before joining the Hammers in early 2007. He went on to make his senior debut while on loan at Cheltenham Town during the early part of the 2008/2009 season - going on to score on his debut and make a total of 11 League appearances for The Robins. He then made his Premier League debut as substitute in The Hammers 1-1 draw at Blackburn on March 2009 and made one further sub appearance before the end of the 2008/2009 campaign. He joins Wycombe on an initial one month loan lasting until 23rd February 2010.
REVELL DEAL COMPLETED
(Friday 22nd January 2010)
Wanderers have completed the loan signing of striker Alex Revell after they agreed a workaround with his former club Southend United. Revell was unable to sign on a permanent deal for Wycombe having already played for two clubs in the current season on either a permanent deal or regular loan. Having initially left Southend, Revell has now rejoined The Shrimpers and will join Wanderers on an 'Emergency Loan' starting from 29th January and lasting the maximum 93 days until 1st May - meaning Revell would not be able to play in Wanderers' final scheduled League game of the season at Gillingham on 8th May.
(Thursday 21st January 2010)
Gary Waddock has completed the free signings of goalkeeper Steve Arnold from Eastleigh and midfielder Dean Keates from Peterborough United. 20 year old Arnold, who has been on trial with Wycombe since December, joins on a deal until the end of the season.
Meanwhile, Keates joins on a similar deal. The 31 year old has been with Posh for two and a half years with his previous clubs including Walsall, Hull City and Lincoln City.
YOUNG LEAVES EARLY
(Thursday 21st January 2010)
Goalkeeper Jamie Young has left the Wanderers by mutual consent after just over four years with the Club. The 24 year old joined Wycombe on a free from Reading in August 2006 and notched up 48 First Team appearances, with his highlights being his involvement in earning Wycombe's place in the League Cup semi-final in the 2006/2007 season. However, Young has made just one League appearance this season (the 6-0 reverse at Huddersfield) and Manager Gary Waddock has told him early that his contract will not be renewed in the summer. Young, who is expected to return to his native Australia to further his career, commented to the official website, "I really enjoyed my time at the Club. It's been frustrating at times because I personally feel that I could have played a lot more games, but I've had some great times with Wycombe. I've definitely grown in experience and I would like to say 'thank you' to everyone at Wycombe, especially the supporters behind the goal. I don't think I'll have a similar relationship with another set of supporters as I have here."
STADIUM PROPOSALS UPDATE
(Thursday 21st January 2010)
Wycombe District Council are set to allocate more than £700,000 to facilitate the proposed 'Community Stadium' to be shared by Wycombe Wanderers and London Wasps. The budget figures are due to discussed at a Special Cabinet meeting on Thursday 21st January 2010 at the Council offices in High Wycombe.
Stadium proposals update - 21st January 2010
SHOTS FIRE BACK
(Wednesday 20th January 2010)
Aldershot Town manager Kevin Dillon has rubbished Wanderers' offer for midfider Scott Donnelly as being 'derisory' according to a report on the Bucks Free Press website. Dillon told the BFP reporter, "The bid that we got wouldn't buy you. It was as low as a badger's arse. It was derisory."
However, Donnelly has said he wants to play again under Gary Waddock, commenting in another BFP article, "He is the best manager I have played under. He’s had me since I was a youth team player at QPR and he brought me here and I feel that I have played my best football under him. I know Gary wants me and we will just have to wait and see what happens. I would like to think there will be other bids but if not I will just get on with my football and try and get on with it."
(Wednesday 20th January 201o)
Wycombe Wanderers Supporters Trust Director Don Woodward has expressed his regret at the perhaps mis-leading nature of an article that appeared in The Business Magazine stating that 'The deal to save Wycombe Wanderers from plunging into administration was
brokered by an ardent supporter who was asked to get involved by other fans desperate to ensure the 122 year old club did not fail.' Woodward, who is MD for 'change management' company Precision One, was co-opted on to the Trust Board in the May 2009 and has subsquently become one of the two Trust reps on the Football Club Board. COTN understands that the article was constructed following an interview with Woodward on Talksport shortly after the vote in July 2009 and has since appeared on the Precision website as a mp3 download.
Woodward said in a statement on the Trust website, that he, "..expressed his regret that the interview and subsequent articles seemed to indicate that the saving of WWFC was due to the efforts of one man when in reality it was due to the Trust Board actively supported by outside advice paid for by the generosity of unnamed individual." Meanwhile, the Trust have also published a Frequently Asked Questions page on their website.
SHOTS REJECT BID
(Monday 18th January 2010)
Wanderers have a bid for Aldershot Town midfielder Scott Donelly turned down according to reports
on Sky Sports. The 22 year old former QPR trainee was signed by Gary Waddock for The Shots in the summer of 2007 and has come to attention of several clubs after after scoring nine goals in 27 League and Cup appearances this season. Donnelly, who was also trained by Waddock while at Loftus Road, is out of contract with The Shots in the summer when he could therefore leave on a free.
WYCOMBE 1 CHARLTON 2
(Saturday 16th January 2010)
Wanderers were plunged deeper into relegation trouble following a 2-1 reverse at home to
Charlton Athletic on Saturday. The result leaves Wycombe still six points adrift from a place outside the relegation zone and having played up to four games more than their closest rivals. Promotion chasing Charlton, making their first ever competitive appearance at Adams Park, came up against a Wanderers side where Stuart Green was brought into the starting line-up to replace the departed Tommy Doherty. Gary Waddock's side made an encouraging start and should have been ahead in the 6th minute when Stuart Beavon ran from midfield only to pull his final shot wide of the left hand upright from around 12 yards. Jon-Paul Pittman also fired wide moments later from a Scott Davies assist but all that good work was undone in the 11th minute when Jonjo Shelvey struck past Scott Shearer after Nicky Bailey's cross from the left had been helped on by Lloyd Sam. The visitors then began to take control of the game and came close to doubling their lead on several occasions in spells either side of the break. However, after Shearer had turned a on loan Reading striker David Mooney's effort around the post just before the hour mark, Wanderers levelled. The goal came after a move down the right channel was pulled back into the box by Green where Pittman managed to swivel and fire the ball into the Valley End net. The result could then have gone either way but it was more erractic defending from the Wanderers that cost them dear again - this time after Shearer had saved from close from Shelvey at his left hand post only for Woodman to clear into a Charlton player and for the ball to come back across the face of the goal, failed to be cleared again and then Bailey to fire home from the opposite side of the goal. It was another crushing blow for Gary Waddock's side who are now facing a massive challenge to avoid the drop. Next match away to Southend United on Saturday (23rd January). Wycombe: Shearer, Woodman, Hinshelwood, Mousinho, Westwood, Hunt, Green (sub 65 Betsy), Davies, Beavon (sub 65 Phillips), Harrold, Pittman - subs not used: Young, Oliver, Fitchett, Harris, (only 6 subs named) - Att:6,123 (away 1700 approx)
BETSY RETURNS AGAIN
(Friday 15th January 2010)
Wanderers have signed Kevin Betsy on a permanent basis from Southend United following his four month loan spell at Adams Park. The midfielder missed the game at Leeds because his loan spell had expired but has now returned on a deal running until the end of the current campaign. Betsy, who will be 32 in March, commented to the official website, "I'm delighted to be back in familiar surroundings and at the club where I have been my happiest. I made no secret when I signed on loan earlier this season that I wanted to remain at the club for as long as I can. That was my intention and it is fulfilled until at least the end of the season." Betsy originally joined Wycombe in the summer of 2005 and scored 13 goals in 89 appearances before a £150,000 switch to Bristol City in January 2007.
THE DOC QUITS
(Friday 15th January 2010)
Tommy Doherty has sensationally quit the Club because he has been unable to make up his differences with Manager Gary Waddock. The Club have agreed to terminate his contract, which was due to run until June 2011, and he is now a free agent and able to find another Club without Wanderers receiving a transfer fee. The disagreement between Doherty and Waddock stems back to their time together at QPR when Doherty believes Waddock was responsible for the decision to let him go from Loftus Road and subsequently join The Wanderers. Doherty commented to the Bucks Free Press, "I have no problem with the club, my team mates or the Wycombe fans, but my heart just isn’t in it any more." Meanwhile, Club MD Steve Hayes commented, "We tried to persuade him to stay until the summer and told him to work his socks off to earn a move but he didn’t want that and we’ve done a deal that we’re pleased with.”
(Wednesday 13th January 2010)
Close to 24 hours after the Wanderers official website pulled their story of the signing Southend United striker Alex Revell, they have published a statement suggesting that the Football League had, "discovered a potential problem in completing the necessary paperwork and the move was put on hold even though the player has already agreed terms and passed a medical.". The statement went on to add, "It was hoped that the problem would be swiftly resolved, but this has not proved possible and both the player and the Club are now awaiting further news."
ALEX REVELL TO SIGN?
(Tuesday 12th January 2010)
Wanderers are reported to have signed Southend United striker Alex Revell on a short term deal until the end of the current campaign. The respective official websites of the clubs reported the deal at around 4pm on Tuesday afternoon but both stories were removed later in the afternoon without explanation, although a report on the Bucks Free Press website remains. 26 year old Revell joined The Shrimpers in a £150,000 deal from Brighton & Hove Albion in January 2008. He went on to score 4 goals in 40 League appearances for United but a broken leg suffered in January 2009 hampered his progress. He spent the early part of the 2009/10 season on loan to Swindon Town - scoring twice in 10 games before returning to Roots Hall where he has apparently agreed to be released from his contract to enable a free transfer to Wycombe.
Gary Waddock is quoted as saying, "I am delighted to get him. I've been tracking him for some while and hopefully he can score the goals we have been missing." Revell is a former trainee with Cambridge United who dropped down to non-League football before moving to Brighton in the summer of 2005 for an £8,000 fee from Braintree Town.
LEEDS BEAT THE WEATHER
(Saturday 9th January 2010)
Wanderers match at Elland Road on Saturday was one of just two 'League One' games to go ahead at the weekend. Norwich v Exeter was the only other match to survive in Wanderers' division while all 'League Two' matches fell foul to the widespread snow fall across the country. In the Championship there were just 3 games on Saturday (Cardiff, Coventry and Derby) with games at West Brom and Leicester also taking place on Friday and Sunday respectively. Only the Premier League games at Arsenal and Birmingham survived at the top level with games postponed at Burnley, Fulham, Hull, Liverpool, Sunderland, West Ham and Wigan over the weekend programme. The Leeds-Wycombe game went ahead after United began a clearing operation in the surrounding areas on the previous Wednesday. Close to 700 Wycombe supporters made the trip with Manager Gary Waddock commenting on the Club's official website, "For that many supporters to make the journey was terrific. They were fantastic again, and they've been brilliant since I came to the club. I'm sure they're pleased with the performance and after three minutes they probably thought 'here we go again', but they stuck with us again and hopefully they enjoyed the journey home."
LEEDS UNITED 1 WYCOMBE 1
(Saturday 9th January 2010)
Jon-Paul Pittman's equaliser on 63 minutes earned Wanderers a deserved 1-1 draw at runaway League One leaders Leeds United on Saturday. Wanderers began the day 38 points behind the former giants who were also on a high following their 1-0 FA Cup victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford six days previous. And it looked omimous for Gary Waddock's side when Jonny Howson fired the home side ahead in the third minute with a low angled shot from the left channel that bounced over the dive of Scott Shearer. But Wycombe responded with a gutsy performance that delighted the travelling contingent that had braved the winterery conditions in order to witness Wanderers first ever visit to Elland Road. Pittman struck a dipping shot from the left against the opposite upright on 7 minutes, while a Scott Davies corner from the right was deflected against the far post on 12 minutes. Wycombe survived a scare just before the break when Bradley Johnson's header was cleared off the line by Lewis Hunt but it was a rare attack from the home side. Wanderers' reward finally came in the second-half when Davies' sweeping past from midfield found Pittman on the left wing who cut inside his man before sending in a low shot that nestled into the opposite corner of the Leeds net.
It was nothing less than Wycombe deserved and it could have even been three points had a low cross not been cut out as Matt Harrold waited in the centre. Despite the point, Wycombe remain second from bottom in the table and having played more games than the clubs above them will need a remarkable run of results to drag themselves away from the relegation zone, starting with the home game against Charlton Athletic on Saturday 16th January. Wycombe: Shearer, Woodman, Hinshelwood, Mousinho, Westwood, Hunt, Doherty, Davies, Beavon, Harrold, Pittman - subs not used: Bloomfield, Green, Young, Oliver, Phillips (only 5 subs named) - Att:24,383 (away 666)
AKINDE RECALLED BY CITY
(Thursday 7th January 2010)
Bristol City have recalled striker John Akinde early from his loan spell with the Wanderers. The 20 year old was due to return for the Wanderers at Leeds on Saturday following his three match ban but the 'Championship' side have taken up their option to recall their player. The decision leaves Manager Gary Waddock with a reduced squad for Wanderers first ever visit to Elland Road after Kevin Betsy returned to Southend early in the week following the end of his loan spell. The Wanderers boss says he is hoping to bring in players during the January transfer window but COTN understands that belated cost cutting exercises Adams Park means that Waddock has been told that he needs to offload contracted players from his current squad before his able to make any significant additions.
STOCKPORT IN TROUBLE
(Tuesday 5th January 2010)
Wanderers' fellow League One side Stockport County appear to be reaching a critical point in their history. County entered administration in April 2009 with reported debts of £500,000 and face expulsion from the Football League if a buyer isn’t found for the start of next season. A statement on the County official website on 24th December by Administrators Leonard Curtis claimed that talks are ongoing for the sale of the club and news is expected later this month. County are now tenants in what was their own stadium but now owned by a seperate company that also owns Rugby Union side Sale Sharks - a side who originally played as tenants of County at Edgeley Park. Fans held a march in Stockport and Manchester on December 29th to protest at County's continuing off-field problems while fears for the future of County have also been documented by Oliver Holt in an extended piece published in the Daily Mirror at the turn of the year. Holt claims the biggest problem is County's association with Sales Sharks, adding "County's identity is being eaten away by that association. The club is losing its soul. That's why there haven't been any feasible offers for the club yet. County needs a buyer who understands that. A buyer that loves football not rugby. A buyer that puts the football club first."
DAVIES LOAN EXTENDED
(Monday 4th January 2010)
Wanderers have agreed a 12 day extension to Scott Davies' loan spell from Reading. This takes the loan deal to the maximum 93 days allowed by Football League rules for 'short term' loans. Any further loan for Davies during the current campaign would have to a be a 'long term' loan for the remainder of the season and without the ability for Reading to recall the player. Davies has scored 4 goals during his 15 First Team appearances while at Adams Park and was due to return to Reading after playing the final game of his original loan spell in the defeat to Norwich.
BETSY BACK TO SOUTHEND
(Monday 4th January 2010)
Kevin Betsy has returned to Southend United after his four month loan spell with the Wanderers came to an end following the meeting with Norwich City at Adams Park on Saturday (2nd January). The former Wanderer returned to Adams Park while Peter Taylor was still in charge at Adams Park but was still a regular under new boss Gary Waddock. Betsy is reported to be keen to extend his stay at Adams Park but Southend appear to want him to return. He told the Bucks Free Press, "Everyone knows how much I love Wycombe but I am going back to Southend where I will fight for my place."
WYCOMBE 0 NORWICH 1
(Saturday 2nd January 2010)
Wanderers completed a miserable holiday campaign after going down 1-0 to Norwich City on another cold afternoon at Adams Park. With new signing Adam Hinshelwood making his debut in defensive, Gary Waddock's side put in an improved performance but will look at more wayward finishing that ultimately cost them the chance of taking any points from the meeting with Paul Lambert's promotion chasing team. Jon-Paul Pittman and Scott Davies were guilty of wasting several clear cut chances while Matt Phillips' struck an effort against the left hand Valley End upright before the visitors finally scored the crucial goal on 77 minutes. But while Wanderers missed chances, Scott Shearer was in top form at the other end to prevent another pounding for Wycombe's much maligned defence that had leaked nine goals in the previous two games. Pittman had a good chance as early as the 8th minute when he fired high of the target and into part of the 2,000 plus Norwich following in the away end. Chris Martin sent a free-kick against the Wycombe crossbar on 36 minutes before Davies headed wide from 10 yards and then Pittman again perhaps should have done better. Former Wanderer Russell Martin, on loan to The Canaries from Peterborough, saw a dipping shot from the right tipped over by Shearer just before the break as the game remained goalless. The visitors stepped up a gear in the second period but Shearer did a remarkable job to protect his goal. The turning point of the game came in the 76th minute when Davies sent through Phillips to the right of goal with just Fraser Forster in the Norwich goal to beat. The youngster looked to have done everything right but to the agony of the Wanderers followers in the crowd, the ball came back off the opposite post and to safety. With the crowd still buzzing, the ball was cleared to the other end where Wes Hoolahan squared from the left for an unmarked Korey Smith to have the simple task of firing home and delighting the away support. Wanderers had no answer and remain second from bottom in the table with a 6 point margin to get out of the relegation zone. The next daunting fixtures are away to Leeds United on Saturday 9th January and then at home to Charlton Athletic on Saturday 16th January. Wycombe: Shearer, Woodman, Hinshelwood (sub 60 Oliver), Mousinho, Westwood, Hunt, Betsy (sub 82 Harrold), Doherty, Davies, Phillips (sub 85 Bloomfield), Pittman - subs not used: Green, Young, Beavon, Harris - Att:7,171 (away 2200)
WADDOCK SIGNS DEFENDER
(Saturday 2nd January 2010)
Gary Waddock has returned to his former club to bring in Aldershot Town defender Adam Hinshelwood on a free transfer. The 25 year old joins on a deal until the end of the current season and made 15 appearances for The Shots after Waddock signed him in the summer of 2009 from Brighton & Hove Albion. The Oxford born player is a former trainee with Brighton who made his Football League debut in March 2002 aged 18. He went in to make 99 Football League apps for The Seagulls before being released from his contract at the end of the 2008/9 campaign. Waddock made him Club Captain following his move to Aldershot and his respect for the player would have been a major factor in renewing their acquaintance at Adams Park.
