Background: A player chased by Lawrie Sanchez for over year before signing on a 'Bosman' in May 2002. Has a fairly low strike in his career to date but Sanchez says, "At 24, he still has a good future in front of him and maybe the move from Wrexham will be good for him." Meanwhile Faulconbridge is grateful that Sanchez waited for his chance to sign him. He told the Bucks Free Press "I know he's been after me for two years. He kept faith in me and that is a big boost to my confidence and I want to pay him back. He has really made me welcome. He waited for me and that was very important to me. Other clubs were after me but I had already made my mind up that I wanted to come to Wycombe." The ex-Wrexham striker also says he's ready for the new challenge at Wycombe having moved house to Buckinghamshire and he's confident he'll score goals. "If you give me half a chance in the box, in the air or on the ground, nine times out of ten I will finish it off. I don't set targets but I'm looking to score as many as I can for Wycombe. I've seen them play and I'm up for the challenge. My ambition is to score as many goals as I can and to get promotion because Wycombe are definitely a promotion side."
