Background:
Midfielder given an 'initial one year deal' with the Wanderers on 24th July 2015 after the former Watford youngster impressed in two pre-season games and training. Speaking of the deal, Manager Gareth Ainsworth said:"Luke came to us highly recommended and he's proved himself to be a very talented player who will be an excellent addition to the squad. He's still young but his time on loan at Wealdstone gave him a great introduction to senior football and I'm looking forward to working with him to unlock more of his potential."

The 20 year old was released by Watford at the end of the 2014/15 season having played just two minutes of First Team football while at Vicarage Road and since joining as an Under 9. O'Nein scored for Wycombe against Wealdstone in a pre-season friendly four days before signing. -He had previously spent two loan spells at Wealdstone - the first at the tail end of the 2013/14 season as The Stones won the Isthmian Premier Championship and then again the following season, making 35 Conference South appearances and scoring fives times.

After a successful first season at Adams Park, had his contracted extended by three years. Commenting on the deal, Manager Gareth Ainsworth said: "From the first day Luke came in to train with us last summer, I knew I wanted to make him a Wycombe Wanderers player, and heís exceeded our expectations for a young man in his first proper season as a professional. Lukeís a real role model for youngsters wanting to make their way into the game with the way that he applies himself on the training ground, on the pitch on a matchday and also around the place with team-mates, staff and supporters." He added: "Weíre delighted to keep him here for another three years and Iím excited about the extent to which his career can develop during that time."

Meanwhile, OíNien said: ďThis place is home to me now and I never had any doubts about wanting to stay here. Iíve loved every minute from the first day that I came into training and everyone made me, my friends and family feel welcome. Iím enjoying my football and Iím learning every day from my team-mates and the coaching staff, and Iíd like to particularly thank the gaffer, Richard Dobson and Barry Richardson for the hard work they put in to help me improve my game."
