Former Youth Team player with Fulham who originally joined Wanderers on a one month loan from Brentford on 28 February 2014 as cover for the injured Gary Doherty. An unused substitute for a number games before making his debut in the midweek defeat at Burton on 25th March 2015. The performance impressed Manager Gareth Ainsworth enough to extend the loan until the end of the 2014/15 season. Scored his first senior goal when he headed in a vital equaliser in a relegation battle against Northampton Town on 18th April 2015. He retained his place for the remainder of the campaign and was a crucial member of the team as relegation to the Conference was avoided on the final day of the season.
Turned down the offer of a contract with Brentford in the summer of 2014 in favour of a three year deal with the Wanderers, with with the deal stated as being for 'an undisclosed compensation agreement'. Eventually teamed up alongside former Bees teammate Alfie Mawson (on loan from Griffin Park) for the whole of the 2014/15 season and although the campaign ended in the disappointment of a Play-Off Final defeat, Pierre proved a consistent performer.
Speaking at the end of the 2014/15 season, Pierre commented: "You can only get better by playing first team games and thatís the choice I had to make when I was playing under-21 games at Brentford to come to League Two and play first team football. Itís all good playing at a higher club, as theyíre in the Championship, but thatís good for the club not for me. Sometimes you have to drop down, gain experience and make sure you do well for yourself. I had to turn it [the contract offer from Brentford] down for my own benefit because itís all good being at a top club but if youíre not in the first team squad then itís a pointless effort, so I had to make a name for myself. I had to do what I had to do, and coming down here was the best experience of my life. I never thought that Iíd be at Wembley. Last year if I thought this would happen Iíd probably have laughed at myself, but, at the end of the day, if you work hard you get the results. We just fell a little bit short but next season Iím sure weíll do it."
