Background:
Signed for Wanderers on a two year deal in July 2014 following his release from Peterborough United. Wycombe said at the time of the deal that the 19 year had signed in order to, "develop his career under goalkeeping coach Barry Richardson, with whom he worked at the Posh."

Originally played for Amlwch Town in the Welsh Alliance League, representing Wales at U17 level, before joining Posh in 2011 on a two year scholarship. Given a one year professional contract in the summer of 2013 but spent much of the 2013/14 campaign on loan at Northern Premier side Stamford.

Following his move to Adams Park was loaned to Conference South side Hayes & Yeading and then Southern Premier outfit Burnham during 2014/15 before his recall to Wycombe in March 2015. Thrown into First Team action for the first time when Matt Ingram suffered an injury in the final game of the regular season away to Northampton Town on 2nd May 2015. Went on to play in both Play-Off Semi-Final games with Plymouth Argyle and then the Final at Wembley versus Southend United where he kept a clean sheet until the very final of stoppage time in extra-time before conceeding an equaliser. Then had the heartbreak, along with the rest of the Wycombe side, of being beaten in the resulting penalty shoot-out.

Appeared for Wanderers in the pre-season games before the start of the 2015/16 campaign but was loaned out to Conference South side Wealdstone on the eve of the new season. However, was recalled to Wycombe a week later due to injury to Wycombe's goalkeeping coach Barry Richardson who had previously been the emergency 'keeper on the bench.

Was called into surprise First Team action again on 24th October 2015 when another injury to Matt Ingram meant that he made his first Football League start for the 1-1 draw with Carlisle United. Then, in keeping with his 'only playing in the big games tag', appeared in the televised FA Cup Third Round tie with Aston Villa at Adams Park on 9th January 2016 due to a one game suspension for Matt Ingram. The tie ended 1-1 but Lynch had to sit out the replay due to Ingram's return.

In another twist to his time at Wycombe, Ingram's departure to QPR in the days after the Villa replay meant that Lynch was recalled to First Team action for home meeting with Leyton Orient on 23rd January 2016 and he kept his place for the following week's trip to Plymouth Argyle. However, his chances of a prolonged spell in the First Team were cruely ended when he was forced off due to injury after just 15 minutes. That incident led to 46 year old Barry Richardson (Lynch's goalkeeping coach) taking over in goal for the remainder of the game.

Lynch's First Team place was taken by Bournemouth loanee Ryan Allsop and with Gareth Ainsworth also aquiring Villa 'keeper Benjemin Siegrist on loan as further back-up, Lynch's days at Wycombe were numbered and he was released at the end of the 2015/16 campaign.
