50 years of supporting Wycombe today
November 21st 1970 - Wycombe v Slough Town in the FA Cup 1st Round at Loakes Park. My first ever WW match. My cousin & my uncle had come over for the weekend & along with my father we decided to go to the match.
I don’t remember a lot about it except that the first ever Wycombe goal I saw scored was the equaliser by Tony Horseman. What I do remember though was how colourful the crowd were with home-made scarves, hats & banners.
I didn’t go to the replay but went a few more times that season until I was pressured into buying a season-ticket the following season by some school mates. The rest they say is history.
I should be at Adams Park today celebrating this & watching the Blues play in the Championship. The fact that I can’t is extremely disappointing but it does highlight the astonishing progress this club has made. There have been some wonderful times supporting the club but my lasting memories will always be the atmosphere created on a big match day at Loakes Park. I wish I could have bottled some of that atmosphere for future posterity.
