Gareth Ainsworth post Walsall

A tense and nervy affair was settled by a stunning Jason McCarthy free kick which took Wycombe to the brink of League 1 survival.

In what was probably the Chairboys worst performance of late, the win was reward for their excellent but fruitless endeavours against Rochdale, Charlton and Portsmouth.

With two games remaining and a superior goal difference to most of the teams around them, Wycombe still need a point to be 100% safe.

The relief at full time was palpable and soon after, I spoke to the Wanderers manager, Gareth Ainsworth:

“A disappointing result but not a disappointing performance”

Wycombe Wanderers lost at Adams Park to Gillingham, extending their winless run to five games.

Substitute Regan Charles-Cook forced the ball home on 82 minutes with his first touch, leaving the Chairboys frustrated for not taking their chances earlier in the game.

After the match I spoke to the Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth on BBC Three Counties Radio:

Andrew Harman Presents Investment Plans To Chairboys Fans

Former Wycombe Wanderers player Andrew Harman presented his investment plans for the club to Chairboys fans last night at the Holiday Inn.

Over 150 people were in attendance at the open forum event which was called by Harman himself just two days earlier.

During the presentation, Harman revealed plans to invest £2m into Wycombe Wanderers over five years to address the financial losses at Adams Park whilst aiming to increase revenues by improving the clubs commercial performance.

An additional £1m was pledged to launch a youth academy, fronted by another former Chairboy Ken Wilson, at a sight within a ten mile radius of Adams Park that would include a 4G pitch.

Harman revealed that his potential investment would be for a minority stake in Wycombe Wanderers for the first two years with the desire to increase this to a majority if the fans were happy with the progress.

During the meeting, Harman highlighted his connections with businesses and schools in the local area.

The evening finished with a question and answer session during which some fans voiced their frustration at the Trust board for not putting forward Harman’s proposal as a viable investment option for the club.

After the presentation, I interviewed Mr Harman for BBC Three Counties Radio:

In a statement released on Monday evening, Wycombe Wanderers Trust and Wycombe Wanderers FC chairman Trevor Stroud said:

“We have always declared that we have been in discussions with more than one interested party and I can only reiterate that Bill and Jim’s proposal remains the recommended route forward for the Trust board. We will never close the door on any potential interest until such point that our negotiations with Bill and Jim reach a conclusion, but theirs is the best deal for the club in the view of the Trust board.”

Bill Luby and Jim Collis will present their investment proposal to Trust legacy members at 7:30pm on Monday 28th January at The Hub, Union Baptist church, Easton Street, High Wycombe.

The Americans require 75% of the vote for their proposal to succeed with voting opening on Monday night for a period of three weeks.

Wycombe Wanderers picked up their third EFL1 away victory of the season in a tight affair against Bristol Rovers.

A second half Side Jombati header was enough to seal the three points and maintain the Chairboys eight point gap from the relegation zone.

After the game I spoke to the Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth on BBC3CR:
