Wanderers have extended the loan deal of Portsmouth midfielder Marlon Pack until Saturday 31st October. The deal includes a 24 hour recall clause by the struggling Premiership side. The 18 year old initially joined Wanderers on one month deal running until 29th September and after making his debut in the Football League Trophy tie with Northampton Town on 1st September has gone on to make five League One appearances for the Wanderers, although has yet to be on the winning side.

Wanderers' poor start to the 2009/10 campaign continued on Tuesday evening at Adams Park as they fell 1-0 to John Barnes' struggling Tranmere Rovers side. Wanderers dominated most of the play, including the early stages, but lost to the only goal of the game on 16 minutes when Ian Thomas-Moore crashed in a shot from the right edge of the six yard box into the opposite corner of the Valley End net. Peter Taylor's side were guilty of missing several clear cut goalscoring opportunities before the break but failed to take the initiative in the second period and allowed a determined Tranmere side to register their first away victory of the season and leapfrog Wanderers in the table. Wycombe now have just six points from their opening ten games to make it the worst start since the 2003/4 season when Lawrie Sanchez was sacked ten games in to the new campaign following a similar start. Wycombe: Shearer, Woodman, Oliver, Duberry, Hunt (sub 70 Harrold), Green (sub 84 Westlake), Betsy, Phillips, Pack, Zebroski, Pittman (sub 83 Chambers) - subs not used: Young, Mousinho, Montrose, Johnson - Att:3,899

Wandererers Youth Team have made it though the group stages of the Youth Alliance Cup after returning a 100% record in their opening three games. Victories over Southend United, Queens Park Rangers and most recently a 4-3 win at Millwall mean that the Under 18 side qualify for the knockout stage with one group game still to play. Second Year scholar Sam Belcher has been the goal scoring hero in all three games - including a hat-trick against The Lions and wonder strike against QPR from just over the half-way line. The Second Round will take place on Saturday 7th November with the draw being made after the group stages are completed this Saturday. Youth Team info 2009/10

An 89th minute goal from loanee Ashley Chambers salavaged a 1-1 draw for the Wanderers at Swindon Town. Peter Taylor made four changes to the line-up that lost at home to Franchise the previous week - leaving out John Mousinho, Stuart Beavon, TJ Moncur and Matt Harrold in favour for Lewis Hunt, Kevin Betsy, Montrose and Jon-Paul Pittman. However, the re-jigged line-up fell behind in the 17th minute when Kevin Amankwaah scored with a low shot past Scott Shearer from the right side of the penalty area. Wanderers were heading for another defeat until substitutes Matt Phillips and Chambers combined to level the scores - the latter converting Phillips cross from the right to score his first goal for Wycombe since his loan move from Leicester City with a low shot from the left corner of the six yard box. There was still time for Shearer to pull off a point blank save from Billy Paynter during stoppage time to ensure a well earned point. Wycombe: Shearer, Woodman, Oliver, Duberry, Hunt (sub 65 Phillips), Green (sub 81 Westlake), Betsy, Zebroski, Montrose, Pack, Pittman (sub 76 Chambers) - subs not used: Young, Mousinho, Westwood, Beavon - Att:6,929 (421 away section)

Wanderers went down 1-0 at home to MK 'Franchise' on Saturday at Adams Park. Peter Taylor's side were outplayed in the first half and conceeded the vital goal a minute before the interval when Matthias Doumbe struck past Scott Shearer. An improved second-half performance from Wycombe wasn't enough to generate an equaliser. Wanderers stay third from bottom in the L1 table with five points from their opening eight games. Wycombe: Shearer, Woodman, Oliver, Mousinho (sub HT Betsy), Duberry, Moncur, Green, Beavon (sub HT Pittman), Pack, Harrold (sub HT Phillips), Zebroski - subs not used: Young, Westlake, Johnson, Hunt - Att:6,127 (away 1,252)

Wanderers Reserves drew 0-0 at Stevenage Borough on Wednesday evening in their second Combination match of the season.

Next game for the Reserves is at home to Luton Town on Tuesday 13th October - KO 7pm at Marlow.

Wanderers secured their first away point of the season on Saturday following a 1-1 draw at Hartlepool United. However, it could have been all three if not for a 77th minute equaliser from Pools substitute Adam Boyd. A Wycombe side with three changes from the side that had lost at Brighton took the lead five minutes into the second half when Stuart Beavon broke free from his marker before smashing home from 25 yards with a shot that went in off the post. However, Wanderers had to settle for a point when Boyd picked out Neil Austin's free-kick to fire low past Scott Shearer to ensure that Pools picked up their first home point of the season. Wanderers stay three places off the bottom of the League One table with five points from their opening seven games. Wycombe: Shearer, Moncur, Woodman, Duberry, Oliver, Zebroski, Green (sub 84 Phillips), Pack, Mousinho, Pittman (sub Betsy 83), Beavon - subs not used: Young, Johnson, Harrold, Westlake, Montrose - Att:3,326 (away 111)

Wanderers midfielder Lewwis Spence has been loaned out to Conference side Forest Green Rovers for an initial one month spell. Spence, who joined Wanderers in the summer of 2008, made 21 League starts last season for Peter Taylor's side but after missing the opening stages of the current campaign through injury, has made just 20 minutes of First Team action this term when he appeared as substitute in the Football League Trophy defeat to Northampton Town. Meanwhile, Spurs on loan defender Adam Smith has returned to White Hart Lane after a month with The Wanderers. The 18 year old right back made 3 appearances for Wycombe during his time at Adams Park.

Wanderers Reserves kicked-off their new season in the Combination on Tuesday evening with a 1-1 draw against Watford at Marlow FC. A strong Wanderers side took the lead in the 6th minute when Stuart Beavon struck home an Ashley Chambers cross from the left wing. However, despite having the better of the remainder of the game Watford grabbed an equaliser in the 62nd minute when Matt Sadler reacted first to tap home after Liam Henderson had headed against the Wanderers crossbar. Next game for the Reserves is away to Stevenage on Wednesday 16th September - KO 7pm.

Wanderers Manager Peter Taylor has conceeded that his side could be in a relegation battle come the end of the season. He was quoted in the Midweek Free Press as saying, "I think we have got to work extremely hard to stay in the division looking at the size of the other teams. Itís not being negative, itís being realistic and I think we are very capable of that. I understand supporters would probably want me to say we are going to win it but that would be a bit unrealistic and comparing the teams in the division I am just being realistic." The comments come four months after Club MD Steve Hayes said it was realistic to aim to reach the play-offs when talking to the press shortly after Wanderers promotion to 'League One' in May 2009.

A lerthargic performance from the Wanderers at The Withdean Stadium saw Peter Taylor's side go down 1-0 by fellow strugglers Brighton & Hove Albion. The only goal of the game came on 75 minutes when the Wycombe defence failed with their offside trap to allow substitute Dean Cox to square the ball from the right for Nicky Forster to slot into an empty net. It was a game of few chances where Wanderers fielded an unchanged line-up to the one that beaten Bristol Rovers seven days previous. New signings Kevin Betsy and Marlon Pack both made appearances from the bench. The result sees Wycombe fall to 22nd in the 'League One' table with four points from the opening six games. Next match for the Wanderers, away to Hartlepool on Saturday 12th September. Wycombe: Shearer, Moncur (sub 79 Betsy), Woodman, Duberry, Oliver, Green (sub 67 Pittman), Mousinho, Westlake (sub 67 Pack), Phillips, Zebroski, Harrold - subs not used: Young, Johnson, Westwood, Beavon - Att:5,895 (away 495)

Wanderers' 'League One' fixture at Huddersfield Town on Saturday 14th November will now be played with an earlier kick-off time of 12.05pm in order to suit live TV coverage by Sky. As the away Club, Wanderers are expected to receive around £10,000, with The Terriers bagging around £30,000. Wycombe last played Huddersfield during the 2002/2003 season and were previously involved in a live TV game with The Terriers in September 2001 when the ill fated ITV Digital broadcast Wanderers' 2-1 defeat at the McAlpine Stadium.

Wanderers were sent out of the Football League Trophy on Tuesday evening at Adams Park after losing 3-0 in a penalty shoot to Northampton Town after the game had ended 2-2 after 90 minutes. The 7pm kick-off attracted an attendance of just 1,035 and saw a much changed Wanderers line-up fall behind to a 40th minute penalty from Ryan Gilligan after Leon Johnson had pushed over Ben Marshall. Wanderers levelled with a spot-kick of their own on 62 minutes when Jon-Paul Pittman converted after Dean Beckwith had handled. However, the visitors looked to have won the tie by conventional means on 86 minutes when Steve Guinan was allowed in to score. But it was Pittman who took the tie to immediate extra-time with a 90th minute scrambled equaliser. Thoughts of a reprieve were short lived as Wanderers contrived to miss their first three spot kicks through Ian Westlake, Ashley Chambers and Leon Johnson, while Gilligan, Guinan and Abdul Osman scored for The Cobblers to end Wanderers' interest in this ever increasingly pointless competition. Next game for Wanderers, away to Brighton on Saturday (5th Sep).
Wycombe: Young, Smith, Woodman (sub HT Cobb), Westwood, Johnson, Phillips (sub 70 Spence), Montrose, Pack, Westlake, Beavon, (sub 33 Chambers), Pittman - subs not used: Shearer, Oliver - Att: 1,035 (away 201)

Former Wanderer Kevin Betsy has returned to the Club on loan from Southend United in the final minutes before the transfer window closed at 5pm on Tuesday afternoon. Betsy, now 31, made 89 appearances for Wycombe in an eighteen month spell before a £150,000 move to Bristol City in January 2007. However, after being a regular in the City side that gained promotion to the 'Championship' at the end of that season, he initially joined Yeovil Town on loan during the 2007/2008 season and then to Walsall for the remainder of the campaign. In August 2008 he joined Southend United on a two year deal where he was a regular again before falling out of favour this season and taking the opportunity to rejoin the Wanderers and what is an initial four month period.
(Tuesday 1st September 2009)
Watford have confirmed the sale of former Wanderers defender Mike Williamson to Portsmouth on a four year deal for an initial fee of £2m that could rise to £3m based on appearances at the Premiership club. The sale means that Wanderers will receive 25% of the initial profit from the sale, £462,500, rising to a potential £712,500 should the appearance clauses be met. Williamson originally joined Wycombe from Pompey rivals Southampton in July 2004 on a season long loan before agreeing a permanent deal with Wanderers in the summer of 2005.
