Central Defender who signed a two year deal with Wanderers on Tuesday 26th July 2016 following his release from Sheffield Wednesday. The 21 year old had failed to break into the Owls First Team after a move from Millwall where he was a trainee. Also played on loan at Histon Town during his time with Millwall - playing alongside fellow Wycombe summer 2016 signing Nick Freeman. Previous to that he also played on loan at Cambridge City. Speaking of his move to Wycombe, De Havilland said: "At the end of my first year at Sheffield Wednesday I was in and around the first team squad, and on the bench for 15 games or so, but I didn't actually make my debut. I would love to kick on and get back in that league and show them what they missed out on. That's the aim, kick on as high as I can get and see if I can make it to the top."
Commenting on the signing, Manager Gareth Ainsworth said: "Will is a young lad near the start of his career and where he’s lacking in first-team experience, he’s got all the attributes to be a success and I’m sure he can compete with the likes of Aaron Pierre and Anthony Stewart for a place in the starting line-up because he’s been excellent throughout his trial."
Made 23 appearances during his first season with the Wanderers but fell down the pecking order at the start of the 2017/18 campaign and was loaned to Conference side Aldershot Town for a couple of months before returining to Wycombe during the winter months. Loaned out again in February 2018, this this time to Maidstone United where he stayed until being recalled by Wanderers' due to injury problems in defensive during the promotion run-in. Was an unused substitute in the games against Lincoln City and Accrington Stanley in April 2018 and although not playing, was lucky enough to be involved in the end of season promotion celebrations.
His release was announced on 10th May 2018 with Gareth Ainsworth commenting: “[The released players] found it hard to break into the side due to the strong competition for places in defence, and we felt it was best for all parties to give [him] the opportunity to look for first-team football elsewhere. [The released players have] been brilliant to work with and gave their full support to the other lads when they weren’t in the team. I hope our paths cross again and that they’re able to enjoy long, successful careers in the game.”
