No game this week but we are at our Holtspur home to play King George V in the Premier Division on Sunday 3rd March.
Away to FC Beaconsfield in the Premier Division, Wycombe Town picked up another valuable three points with an excellent teamwork display winning 2-1. ‘Town’ dominated the first half playing some great passing football and restricted Beaconsfield to random counter attacks. The first goal came from a corner which Beaconsfield failed to clear and 'man of the match' Gary Cook was on hand to put the ball in the net to make the score 1-0 at half time. The second half saw Beaconsfield get more into the game but the 'Town' defence held good and after a direct passing move up the pitch Michael Butcher was there to drive the ball into the net to make it 2-0. ‘Town’ held steady and even scored a third goal which unfortunately was an own goal, making the final score a very deserved 2-1 win.
Wycombe Town FC's next fixture is this Sunday 17th February, where we play FC Beaconsfield in a Premier Division match at Holtspur. The clubs have faced one another many times over the years and the games are always close. Both teams are in a 'transition season' looking to build for the future and it will be an interesting game.
In wet, windy, miserably cold and muddy conditions, ‘Town’ visited Ferny Fields at Booker to play King George V in a Premier division game. Kicking into the wind, ‘Town’ went on the attack restricting ‘King George’ to random counter attacks which the ‘Town’ defence handled well. After pressurising the ‘King George’ defence ‘Town’ got a break which James Hall capitalised on and slotted the ball into the net to make the score 1-0 at half time. Amazingly able to play some passing football in the bad conditions, ‘Town’ found themselves 3-0 up after Allison Batista drove the ball into the net and then Michael Butcher neatly chipped the keeper. ‘Town’ then let the lead slip with two soft goals and a superb shot and the score was even at 3-3. Making two late substitutions ‘Town’ went for the winner and pressurised the ‘King George’ goal mouth and substitute Craig Mant in only his second outing after injury in 10 months, latched on to a great through ball from Batista and drove the ball home, for ‘Town’ to claim all three points winning 4-3.
New Blue White and Brown kit!!!
Wycombe Town FC return to Premier Division action this week with a visit to Booker playing fields to play King George V. With key players returning from injury 'Town' are hoping for a return to winning ways.
