It is with great sadness I have to report the passing of one of Wycombe Wanderers’ most fervent supporters. Ian Mitchell passed away last night, having suffered a fatal heart attack at home. Despite the efforts of the paramedics to revive him they were unable to do so.
Ian followed the Chairboys all his life, following in the footsteps of his late father Albert “Mitch” Mitchell. From the days of the “30 Club” at Loakes Park to the new Vice-Presidents Club at Adams Park, Ian was always part of our little group. In latter years we were members of the Woodlands Exec Club.
Ian was originally from Flackwell Heath and went to William Borlaise School in Marlow. His work often meant he had to travel worldwide and he often used to fly back from America or Europe, landing at Heathrow early Saturday in order to get to Adams Park for a 3pm kick-off.
Twenty years ago he & his wife moved to a village just outside Lincoln. Despite the distance involved he was ever present at all Wycombe home games & most away games too. He had even converted one of the bedrooms of his house to store all his Wycombe programmes and souvenirs - known to all his friends as “The Shrine”.
All I can close with is by saying that Ian was very pleased to have attended both the Championship games we were allowed to go to at Adams Park. It’s come as a great shock to us all as 58 is no age at all. Ian leaves a wife, a huge number of friends in the wider Wycombe Wanderers family and lots & lots of memories. R.I.P. old son.
