WYCOMBE 3 CHELMSFORD 1|
(Saturday 27th November 2010)
Wanderers made it through to the Third Round of the FA Cup for the first time in nine years after eventually dispatching Chelmsford City 3-1 at a near freezing Adams Park on Saturday. The Conference South side gave Wycombe a few scares in the opening stages but Wycombe took the lead in the 22nd minute when Gary Ainsworth latched onto a corner from the right with a 25 yard effort that Scott Rendell deflected past the City 'keeper with a glancing header just outside the six yard box. Stuart Beavon looked to have wrapped up the tie a couple of minutes into the second half when he forced home a cross but despite the referee initially giving the goal, a flurry of protests from the City players aimed at the Assistant on the right wing, amazingly got the officials to overturn the goal for a handball against the Wycombe striker. The controversial decision knocked Wanderers off their stride and City took advantage on 59 minutes when Sam Higgins fired a free kick from a central position 25 yards from goal, through the Wycombe wall and low past Nikki Bull in the Wanderers goal. It sent the 1,300 plus City fans into hysteria and for a while it looked like an upset may be on the cards. However, to Wycombe's credit, they responded well and eventually regained the lead on 73 minutes when Rendell grabbed his second of the game, swivelling at the far post to tuck the ball into the back of the Valley End net. Then with City pushing for an equalising, Beavon broke through from the half way line on 84 minutes, running on past an offside Kevin Betsy before directing ball past James Pullen in the City goal to confirm the victory and the £27,00 prize fund. See YouTube for an 11 minute highlight package courtesy of the Chelmsford City official website Wycombe:Bull, Winfield, Westwood, Johnson, Bloomfield, Betsy, Ainsworth (sub 89 Strevens), Lewis (sub 89 Montrose), Sandell, Rendell (sub 89 Harris), Beavon - subs not used: Foster, Bennett, McClure - Att:3,205 (away 1300 approx)
£1m LOSSES FOR WANDERERS|
(Friday 26th November 2010)
Chief Executive Chris Thomas has confirmed losses for the Wanderers of £1m for the 2009/2010 season. The former employee of owner Steve Hayes at loans.co.uk announced the news to around 80 shareholders at Thursday evening's informal gathering at Adams Park. Thomas, who has been with the Club since April, said the losses for the season were £1.5m prior to the transfer income received from the sell-ons from Roger Johnson and Mike Williamson. He went on to say that the Club were budgeting for a loss of £800K for the current season before taking into account any income from the sale of Matt Phillips to Blackpool. Talking of the new stadium project he said it provided, "..a far greater opportunity to reduce our losses" but went on to add that he will need to be convinced that it is a financial benefit to the Club and looked forward to outcome of the consultation. The losses for 2009/10 compare to just under £700K for 2008/9 and £1.6m in 2007/8. In the six seasons since the conversion to a PLC, the company has raked up losses of £6.3m compared to £1.7m for the previous six seasons as a limited company.

(Thursday 25th November 2010)
As Wanderers aim to reach the Third Round of the FA Cup for the first time since the 2001/2002 season, COTN looks back at previous meetings with Saturday's Second Round visitors, Chelmsford City.

WYCOMBE 1 TORQUAY 3|
(Tuesday 23rd November 2010)
Despite getting off to a dream start, Wanderers were comprehensively beaten 3-1 by Torquay United at Adams Park on Tuesday evening. An unchanged Wycombe side were ahead in the 6th minute when Stuart Beavon forced Ben Streven's blocked shot over the line - the Assistant on the right correctly confirming the ball had crossed the line. Wanderers could have been further ahead on 13 minutes when Gareth Ainsworh's attempted lob from more than 30 yards almost caught out former Wanderers loanee Scott Bevan in The Gulls goal. However, it was the visitors who went to look by far the better side, equalising on 26 minutes when Wanderers failed to properly clear a ball in from the right, allowing Nicky Wroe to blast home from the edge of the box. Ainsworth almost regained the lead for Wanderers four minutes before the break when he shot an effort hit the foot of the post. Then at the start of the second period Kevin Betsy went close from an acute angle. However, moments later the visitors were ahead when Wroe was given too much space down the left before he cut in a directed the ball past Nikki Bull. Wycombe introduced newly signed loanees Stuart Lewis and Josh Parker in an attempt to freshen things up but it was only Bull's fine form between the sticks that prevented further goals for United as the half progressed. Then with three minutes left on the clock, any hope of an unlikely draw was eliminated when Buckinghamshire born Elliot Benyon fired past Bull in a one on one. That signalled an early departure for many of the Wanderers followers in the sparse crowd and leave Gary Waddock with plenty to think about before Saturday's FA Cup meeting with Chelmsford City at Adams Park. Wycombe:Bull, Foster (sub 55 Rendell), Winfield, Westwood, Bloomfield, Betsy, Ainsworth, Montrose (sub 64 Lewis), Strevens (sub 55 Parker), Sandell, Beavon - subs not used: Arnold, Bennett, Johnson, McClure - Att:3,463 (away end 150)

COMMUNITY BOSS QUITS|
(Tuesday 23rd November 2010)
Wanderers' Football in the Community Manager Dave Evans has quit the Club after 13 years at Adams Park. He has been replaced by Ashley Smith who has been branded as the Club's new Community Trust Manager. Smith has spent the last ten years with the Wanderers running the South Bucks area of the Community Scheme. COTN understands that Evans is set for a similar role with Reading. Meanwhile, Evans departure will come as a blow for the pursuers of the proposed 'Community Stadium', who had him lined up as one of the main supporters of the project. Speaking to the press on Evans departure, Chairman Ivor Beeks said, "Dave was a credit to Wycombe Wanderers during his 13 years at Adams Park and as a result, the community department is very highly respected, not just by families in the Wycombe area but also by the Football League."
MIDFIELDER ON LOAN|
(Monday 22nd November 2010)
Gary Waddock has brought in midfielder
Stuart Lewis on a one month loan deal from Dagenham & Redbridge ahead of Thursday's loan deadline. The 23 year old will provide potential cover for either Matt Bloomfield or Lewis Montrose, who are both one yellow card away from suspensions. Lewis joined The Daggers in the summer after a two year spell with Gillingham and previous time with Stevenage and Barnet. His youth football started with Norwich City back in 1995 before switching to Arsenal in 1998 where he went on to gain England Youth honours. He switched to Spurs in 2004 but failed to break into their First Team and moved to Barnet in January 2007, making his Football League debut the following month.
McCOY INTERNATIONAL CALL|
(Monday 22nd November 2010)
Wanderers right-back Marvin McCoy has been called up for the Antigua & Barbuda squad for their CONCACAF Gold Cup qualifiers with Jamaica and Guyana. The 21 year old, who has made just two First Team apps for Wycombe since joining from Wealdstone in the summer of 2010, told the press, "It feels good.

McCoy, who was born in England, qualifies through his Antiguan father. He will spend two weeks in the Caribbean and return for Wycombe duty on 6th December.
PORT VALE 2 WYCOMBE 1|
(Saturday 20th November 2010)
Wanderers four match winning run away from home in the League came to an end on Saturday following a 2-1 defeat at 2nd placed Port Vale. Gary Waddock named an unchanged line-up to the one that had beaten Bradford City seven days previous but his side fell behind in the 11th minute when John McCombe headed home after Marc Richards had returned a Kris Taylor corner back into the danger area. However, Wanderers, who included former Vale favourite Gareth Ainsworth, were level on 16 minutes when Dave Winfield scored his first goal for the club, heading home a Matt Bloomfield corner past Stuart Tomlinson in the home goal. Chris Westwood went close for Wycombe on 37 minutes with a looping header before Nikki Bull pulled off another stunning save just moments before the break when he somehow managed to block a close range shot from Marc Richards after the ball had been delivered to the far post from the left flank. In an open second half it was the visitors who grabbed all three points when McCombe looped in a volley from the left channel on 61 minutes. Marc Richards should have made to 3-1 when he fired over from less than six yards on 80 minutes while Wycombe went closest to snatching a point when Ben Strevens couldn't quite get enough on loose ball in the box. The result sees Wanderers drop to sixth place in the table ahead of Tuesday evening's meeting with seventh placed Torquay United at Adams Park. Wycombe:Bull, Foster, Winfield, Westwood, Bloomfield, Betsy, Ainsworth, Montrose, Strevens, Sandell, Beavon - subs not used: Arnold, Bennett, McCoy, Murtagh, Johnson, Harris, McClure - Att:5,587 (away end 264)

WYCOMBE 1 BRADFORD CITY 0|
(Saturday 13th November 2010)
A controversial 82nd minute goal from Kevin Betsy was enough to see Wanderers defeat
Bradford City 1-0 at Adams Park on Saturday. City, managed by former Wanderers boss Peter Taylor, had seen another ex-Wanderer Tommy Doherty sent off in the 62nd minute for raising his hands in the face of Gareth Ainsworth, and they were furious with the decision for the goal which had seen the referee play the advantage twice in Wycombe's favour before Betsy picked up the loose ball to fire into the Valley End net. The game was argueably the most entertaining of the season to date at Adams Park, with both sides having a host of chances in the opening 45 minutes. Yet another former Wanderer, Luke Oliver, did his best to frustrate his former Club but after Doherty had seen red, the game tipped in Wycombe's favour. The winning goal came after Stuart Beavon was tripped down the right flank. The Assistant flagged for a foul but the Referee waved 'play-on' and Matt Bloomfield took the ball into the box before being upended by City 'keeper
Lennie Pidgeley. Again the Referee played the advantage, with Betsy converting the loose ball. Bizarely, City seemingly claimed that play should have been stopped for the fouls they had committed but the Referee remained unswayed. It was left for a last minute save at the near post by Nikki Bull from Tom Adeyemi to further frustrate the travelling contingent and confirm the win for Wycombe which lifts Gary Waddock's side to 4th place in the table with 28 points from 16 games - 4 points behind leaders Chesterfield and 2 points behind next week's away opponents Port Vale. Wycombe:Bull, Foster, Winfield, Westwood, Sandell, Betsy, Ainsworth, Bloomfield, Montrose, Strevens (sub 74 Rendell), Beavon - subs not used: Arnold, Bennett, McCoy, Murtagh, Harris, McClure - Att:4,077 (away end 300 approx)

(Wednesday 10th November 2010)
Loanee Scott Davies has returned to Reading for treatment after picking up a groin injury in the FA Cup tie at Hayes on Saturday. However, Manager Gary Waddock says he is hopeful he will return, commenting to the press, "It's disappointing for him but we will have to wait and see.

groin so he has gone back to Reading who have had a look at him. They're going to rest him for a period and see how it settles down, so you never know."

DUMPED OUT OF FLT|
(Tuesday 9th November 2010)
Scott Rendell bagged a hat-trick but it couldn't stop Wanderers being dumped out of the Football League Trophy on Tuesday evening at Adams Park - losing 6-3 to 'League One' side Bristol Rovers with visiting striker Jo Kuffour also grabbing three goals. Gary Waddock made the permitted six changes to his starting line-up but he saw Kuffour put the visitors ahead on 22 minutes with a headed effort before the same player doubled the lead five minutes before the interval when he fired home after Wycombe failed to clear a corner. Rendell reduced the arrears on 58 minutes with a header from a Ben Strevens cross but a minute later Kuffour struck again when he converted a cross from former Wanderer loanee John Akinde. Chris Lines made the score 4-1 on 62 minutes when he was left unmarked to shoot home and on 76 minutes Jeff Hughes made it 5-1 when he converted a penalty after Kuffour had been tripped by Alan Bennett.
Rendell went on to complete his consolation hat-trick with a spot-kick on 83 minutes and then another headed goal on 88 minutes from Matt Bloomfield's cross. However, it was the visitors who had the final say when Ben Swallow smashed the ball home in the second minute of injury time to make the final score Wanderers 3 Rovers 6. Wycombe:Bull, Foster, Bennett, McCoy, Johnson, Bloomfield, Betsy, Murtagh, Strevens (sub 64 Harris), Rendell, Beavon (sub 64 McClure) - subs not used: Westwood, Arnold, Montrose - Att:1,591 (away 150 approx)
HOME TIE IN 2nd ROUND|
(Sunday 7th November 2010)
Wanderers were drawn at home to Conference South side Chelmsford City in the Second Round of the FA Cup following the draw made on Sunday afternoon - the tie will be played on the weekend of Saturday 27th November. This is the fifth occasion the two sides have been drawn together in the FA Cup. The first occasion was a 4th Qualifying Round tie back in November 1950, when the then professional Southern League side thrashed an amateur Isthmian League Wanderers 4-0 before an incredible 10,377 crowd at Loakes Park. The next time the two sides met was a First Round encounter in the 1983/84 season where Wanderers forced a 0-0 draw in the first game at New Writtle Street but then were dumped out 2-1 in the replay at Loakes Park three days later. Wanderers gained revenge two seasons later when they overcame the Essex side 2-0 at Loakes Park in a Second Round tie before a gate of 3,816 - Simon Read and Des McMahon getting the crucial goals that earnt a Third Round meeting at York City. The most recent competitive meeting came at the First Round stage of the 1994/95 competition when Wycombe, now a Football League side, cruised past the still Southern Leaguers 4-0 at Adams Park - Simon Stapleton (2), Mickey Bell and Keith Ryan notching the goals in front of 5,654 gate. More recently, the two sides met in a pre-season friendly in July 2008 at City's new home at Chelmsford Sport and Athletic Centre - the home side winning 2-1. The reward for the winners of the Second Round tie will be a sponsors cheque for £27,000 and the chance of a glamour tie in the Third Round.
HAYES & Y 1 WYCOMBE 2|
(Saturday 6th November 2010)
A scrambled stoppage time goal from Gareth Ainsworth saw Wanderers overcome Conference Premier side Hayes & Yeading United at Church Road on Saturday and progress to the Second Round of the FA Cup. Gary Waddock named an unchanged starting line-up to the one that had beaten Gillingham the previous Tuesday but his side made hard work of breaking down the home defence and again had to rely on former Hayes loanee 'keeper Nikki Bull to keep the game goalless. Ainsworth went closest for Wycombe with an attempted 40 yard lob on 21 minutes as the tie entered the break goalless. Bull continued to keep out the home threat in the opening stages of the second period before Stuart Beavon broke the deadlock on 61 minutes when his low shot from just inside the penalty found the back of the net. The goal provided relief for the estimated 700 Wycombe following in the 1,400 crowd but it was short lived, as on 70 minutes Bradley Pritchard swept in a cross from the net with Wanderers players appealing for a flag from the Assistant. The equaliser prompted a frantic finish with both sides looking to snatch victory and the £18,000 prize fund. Scott Davies and Ainsworth both saw efforts hit the woodwork but as the game entered the fourth minute of stoppage time it was the former QPR midfielder who managed to force the ball home from a couple of yards after a Davies corner saw a shot come back off the crossbar. Ainsworth celebrated by cupping his ears towards the taunts of the home following and then joining the celebrations with Wanderers vocal and grateful support.
Wycombe:Bull, Foster, Winfield, Westwood, Sandell, Betsy, Ainsworth, Davies, Montrose, Strevens (sub 81 Rendell), Beavon -
subs not used: Arnold, Bennett, McCoy, Murtagh, Johnson, McClure - Att:1,426 (away 700 approx)
STADIUM PROPOSALS DEBATE|
(Wednesday 3rd November 2010)
Criticism of the proposals for a new 'Community Stadium' to be used by Wycombe Wanderers and London Wasps has continued this week with Lane End Parish Council and the High Wycombe Socity issuing statements to the press. Land End Parish Council met on Monday evening and
Chairman Graeme Coulter told the
Bucks Free Press, "As a parish council we are wholly opposed to the notion of development at Booker" Describing the consultation exercise, he added, "The whole thing is a charade...it is clearly going to be Booker". Meanwhile, the High Wycombe Society released a statement on Wednesday via the press, concluding, "The proposal for a new stadium and sports village at Booker Air Park is unacceptable because of its massive impact on the countryside and on the communities of Booker and Lane End, the lack of any satisfactory current or future transport connections, the highly problematical nature of its suggested financial benefits to the Council or the Clubs, and the unsubstantiated benefits of the sports village."
GILLINGHAM 0 WYCOMBE 2|
(Tuesday 2nd November 2010)
Wanderers made it four consecutive away League victories following a comfortable 2-0 win at Gillingham on Tuesday evening. Gary Waddock made one change from the side that drew with Lincoln the previous weekend, Dave Winfield being prefered to Alan Bennett. It was 18th placed Gillingham who had the brighter start, going close early on when former Wanderer Chris Palmer saw a shot deflected by Chris Westwood onto the post. However, it was Wanderers who took the lead on 23 minutes when Gareth Ainsworth fired home from the edge of the box after Stuart Beavon had cleverly laid the ball off. Kevin Betsy doubled the lead four minutes into the second period when he nipped inside the Gills defence before sending a low shot past Alan Julian in the home net. Gills responded briefly but it was Wycombe who looked the side most likely to add to the scoring, with Beavon, Ainsworth and Danny Foster all going close plus Betsy missing a one on one with 80 minutes on the clock. The result has Wycombe up to 5th place in the table with 25 points from 15 games - 7 points behind leaders Chesterfield. Next game for Wanderers, away to Hayes & Yeading in the First Round Proper of the FA Cup on Saturday (6th November). Wycombe:Bull, Foster, Winfield, Westwood, Sandell, Betsy, Ainsworth (sub 93 Rendell), Davies, Montrose, Strevens, Beavon - subs not used: Arnold, Bennett, McCoy, Murtagh, Johnson, McClure - Att:4,076 (away end 144)
YOUTH TEAM ROUND-UP|
(Monday 1st November 2010)
Wanderers Under 18 side made it through to the next round of another cup competition following a 2-0 victory over Swansea City on Saturday morning at Bisham Abbey in the Football League Youth Alliance Cup. Lee Weemes scored both goals, converting from the spot minutes in the second half after Archie Lloyd had been fouled. Weemes then secured the victory after running in from midfield and slotting past The Swans 'keeper. However, the tie ended on a sour note when Charles Dunn, along with a Swansea player, were sent off after the final whistle following an altercation where Dunn claimed he had been headbutted. Wanderers will travel to Peterborough United in the Third Round to be played on Saturday 11th December. Meanwhile, Richard Dobson's side have learnt that they will travel to either Rushden & Diamonds or Carshalton Athletic in the Third Round of the FA Youth Cup on a date to be agreed before the weekend of 20th November.
