Wycombe Wanderers Football Club PLC announced annual losses of 1.872m in their Financial Statements issued this week. The staggering loss follows on from the 1m lost the previous season but also during a period when the Club reported a profit of 480,000 on the sale of players and an increase in the average attendance at Adams Park. The losses stem from massive increases in operating costs both on and off the pitch. On the playing side, the budget stepped up by around 500,000 and behind the scenes, infrastructure costs have rocketed, with the number of administration staff now above 40, compared to the playing side of 50. To counteract the losses, Managing Director Steve Hayes now has loans totally 2.9m compared to 395,000 in 2005. Fellow Directors Ivor Beeks and Brian Kane now have loans of 45,000 each. The AGM is due to take place on Thursday 7th December. The official Club take on this

Wanderers fans hoping to support their side on a regular Saturday afternoon at the FA Cup tie at Stockport were dealt a blow when it was confirmed by County, that due to pressure from their ground owners Sale Sharks RUFC, that the tie with Wycombe had now been agreed to be played on Friday 1st December with a 7.45pm kick-off. The apparent reason for this, amongst all the spin and counter spin from officials from both clubs, is that Sale have a live game on BBC on Saturday afternoon and the alternative date of Friday was chosen over Sunday because it would give players from both Wycombe and Stockport more rest prior to the League Two fixtures arranged for the following Tuesday. The switch seemingly goes against the Football League ruling that states that member clubs should have primacy of tenure on their ground, thus giving them first option on when games are played.

A dramatic 86th minute goal from Stefan Oakes gave Wanderers a 2-1 victory over Conference leaders Oxford United in the First Round FA Cup tie at Adams Park on Saturday. The goal came less than 60 seconds after Gavin Johnson had equalised for The U's from a free-kick and the 1,800 strong travelling support were still celebrating when Oakes angled in a shot from the left of the penalty area following a right wing delivery from Kevin Betsy. In a game of few chances, Wanderers finally broke the deadlock in the 58th minute when Will Antwi side-footed home from close range following Oakes' ball across from the left. That goal looked to be the winner until the late drama left Wanderers fans with bragging rights at the final whistle. Wycombe: Young, Stockley, Antwi, Williamson, Martin, Palmer, Grant (sub 64 Gregory), Bloomfield, Oakes, Betsy, Mooney (sub 89 Dixon) - subs not used: Christon, Cadmore, Anya - Att: 6279 (1835 away end) - Yellow Cards: Antwi, Grant (5th yellow, suspended 18th Nov v Grimbsy)

Wanderers' feat of reaching the last eight of the Football League Cup is the first time a team from the basement division has gone this far since Doncaster Rovers in the 1975/76 season. However, Wycombe will be hoping for better luck than Rovers, who crashed out 7-2 at Spurs. No team from the fourth tier of English football has ever won the competition, with the best efforts coming when Rochdale reached the final in the 1961/62 season and Chester City made it to the semi-finals in the 1974/75 campaign.

Suspension update SUSPENSION UPDATE
(Monday 6th November 2006)
Will Antwi will miss Tuesday evening's League Cup tie at Notts County due to the immediate one match ban imposed as a result of his red card at Shrewsbury on Saturday (4th November). Meanwhile, Jermaine Easter's fifth yellow card of the season means he will miss next Saturday's FA Cup tie with Oxford United at Adams Park but will be available for the tie with Notts County as the one match suspension does not take effect for seven days. Wycombe are already without Tommy Doherty (suspended), Ricardo Batista (International duty and refused permission by Fulham), Stephen O'Halloran (refused permission by Aston Villa) and Scott Golbourne (refused permission by Reading) for the tie with Oxford United.
(Thursday 2nd November 2006)
On loan Ricardo Batista, Stephen O'Halloran and Scott Golbourne will be unavailable for the FA Cup tie with Oxford United as they have all been denied permission to play by their parent clubs (namely Fulham, Aston Villa and Reading). Batista is also ruled out because he has been called up for the Portugal Under 21 side to play the following Wednesday. Tommy Doherty will also be missing due to a four match ban stemming from his sending off against Boston United. The Club had appealed against the dismissal but this was rejected following an FA hearing on Tuesday (31st October). The four match ban, rather than three, is because it is Doherty's second red card this season having been sent off in a pre-season friendly while playing for his club Queens Park Rangers. Doherty will be available again for the home game with Grimsby Town on Saturday 18th November.
