1000 GAME LANDMARK FOR WYCOMBE
(First published Monday 16th March 2015 - stats updated 19th March 2015)
History Wycombe Wanderers will hit two significant landmarks in their Football League history during March 2015. The home game with Accrington Stanley scheduled for Tuesday 17th March 2015 will be Wanderers' 500th home game in the Football League, while the away game at Luton Town the following Tuesday will be the 1000th Football League encounter for Wanderers since they made their debut back in August 1993 at Carlisle United.

The total has been reached in just over of 21 seasons, 12 of which were spent in the third tier (Division Two and League One). During that period Wanderers have gone through 10 permanent managers, with Gareth Ainsworth being the 11th.

Steve Brown To reach the landmarks, Wanderers have used 330 different players. Steve Brown tops the appearance makers for Wanderers in the Football League games with 371 to his name followed by Keith Ryan on 351. Current squad member Matt Bloomfield sits third in the current ranking on 308. Goalkeeper Martin Taylor holds the current record for consecutive appearances in Football League matches for Wanderers with 115 back to back apps between January 2000 and August 2002. Current 'keeper Matt Ingram had 90 to his name prior to the game with Accrington. At the other end of the scale, Aaron Patton (May 1998) and Jerome Federico (Sep 2010) both appeared as 89th minute substitutes for Wanderers in the Football League but failed to add to their minute of fame in a Wycombe shirt.

Nathan TysonTop scorer is Nathan Tyson with 42 League goals during his all but too brief spell with the Wanderers. Scott McGleish clocked up the most in one season when he bagged 26 goals during the 2007/2008 season under Paul Lambert. Tyson also holds the record for a transfer fee received by the Wanderers when Nottingham Forest paid 675,000 for his services in January 2006. The most Wanderers have paid out for a player was 200,000 - Sean Devine and Darren Currie both commanding this fee when they moved from Barnet in March 1999 and July 2001 respectively.

Jordon IbeJordon Ibe became the youngest player to date to appear in the Football League for the Wanderers when he came on as substitute in the game at Hartlepool on 15th October 2011 aged 15 years and 311 days. 14 days later he became the youngster player to score a League goal for Wanderers when he netted at home to Sheffield Wednesday. Ibe joined Liverpool in December 2011 for a fee in the region of 600,000. The oldest player to date to take the field for Wanderers in the Football League is Rob Lee. The former England International joined Wanderers in March 2005 when John Gorman was Manager. He made his final League appearance for Wanderers aged 40 years and 87 days in the penultimate game of the 2005/6 season. Lee surpassed the previous record held by Ray Wilkins, who was 7 days short of his 40th birthday when he made a one-off appearance for Wanderers in September 1996. Current boss Gareth Ainsworth was a few days behind when he played aged 39 years and 351 days on the final day of the 2012/13 season. But he was still registered as a player at the time of this article, so you never know.

The Meadow Lane swamp on the Wednesday - picture Paul LewisIf you are counting grounds, then Wanderers have played at 93 different ones in League games. The most visited club in the Football League is Chesterfield with 15 trips for the Wanderers (plus a postponed game in December 2001). The most visited ground are Notts County's Meadow Lane with 14 visits plus an extra one for good luck when the League meeting was abandoned there in April 2001 due to torrential rain: while Wanderers have also visited Bury's Gigg Lane on 14 occasions plus an additional visit in September 2001 when the match didn't start because of a floodlight failure before kick-off.

The average home Football League attendance prior to the visit of Accrington Stanley was 5,093, while the average away attendance before the visit to Kenilworth Road was 5,541. The total number of spectators to make their way to Wanderers' games in the Football League is a fraction over 5.3 million.
