Former Wanderer Stuart Beavon has joined League Two side Burton Albion on a season long loan deal from Preston North End. The now 30 year striker moved to North End from Wycombe on transfer deadline day in August 2012 and made 58 League One apps, scoring 9 times in the two seasons before the switch to Burton. The news of the move comes a few days after speculation that he may have returned to Adams Park but a move closer to his current home in Burton looks to have been the key behind the deal. Commenting on the deal, Preston boss Simon Grayson said, "Stuart was a player who came to see me on a number of occasions last year and felt he needed to be playing on a regular basis and this opportunity came up for him." The deal involves a clause where he could be recalled in January.

Wanderers confirmed the signing of defender/midfielder Peter Murphy from Accrington Stanley on Friday afternoon. The 24 year old, who turned down a new contract offer from Stanley, will join Wanderers on a two year deal, with the Club having an option for a third. Murphy, who has predominately played in midfield for Stanley, will be familiar with Wycombe followers as he scored the stoppage time goal that grabbed Stanley an equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Wanderers at The Crown Ground in November 2013. However, perhaps more significantly for Wycombe, he scored a 90th minute winner away to Bristol Rovers in January 2014. The Liverpool born player joined Accrington at the age of 16 and made his First Team debut in April 2008. He went on to make 176 apps, scoring 18 times, including 9 last season, before deciding to make his move to Adams Park.

The news on Morias leaves Anthony Stewart as the only remaining player offered a new deal yet to accept.

The Trust have provided information from the General Meeting held on Tuesday 10th June. The proposed change to the Trust from a Company Limited by Guarantee to a Community Benefit Society was voted through and paves the way for the previous proposed 'Community Share Scheme' to be formally activated in July. At the date of the meeting £470,000 had been pledged by 177 members, although a significant amount of this had been pledged by two individuals (as yet unnamed). The share scheme has become important since the takeover bids fell through. Trust Chairman, Trevor Stroud, commenting at the meeting said, "We got to a stage with three bidders where we asked them to put a deposit down. As soon as we asked for that, they started getting less interested. One told us they transferred it to our bank account - we never saw it. The more we dug in, the more we realised they were out to make money for themselves."
