LONGEST PEACETIME BREAK
(Thursday 23rd April 2020)
23rd April 2020 marked the longest ‘peace time’ break during a season in the 132-year history of Wycombe Wanderers - 54 days, no games. The previous longest break was during the 1962/63 'big freeze' when there were no games played from 27th December 1962 until 18th February 1963. With no return imminent, it looks likely the break will approach in excess of 100 days.
