PIERRE LOAN EXTENDED|
(Monday 31st March 2014)
Aaron Pierre's loan has been extended until the end of the current season. The 21 year old Brentford defender joined on an initial one-month loan from Brentford at the end of February but had to wait until the game at Burton on 25th March to make his Wanderers debut. He made a further appearance in the 0-0 draw at Scunthorpe and impressed enough to be offered the extended deal. Commenting to the media, Pierre said "Iíve played the last two games and Iím getting my confidence up and getting my rhythm back. Hopefully Iíve shown the gaffer that I can be a massive part of the team. It was frustrating at the start because everyone wants to play. I just wanted to get a little run-out, but I got my chance and I think Iíve taken it. Thereís a lot more to come, Iím just getting comfortable with the players around me and the more comfortable I am the more will come out."

WADDOCK NEW OXFORD BOSS|
(Saturday 22nd March 2014)
Oxford United confirmed the appointment of former Wycombe Manager Gary Waddock as their new 'Head Coach' on Saturday (22nd March 2014). The 52 year old had been working as coach at MK Dons since the summer of 2013, having been sacked by Wycombe in September 2012 following a poor run of results. The former QPR midfielder was appointed as Wanderers boss in October 2009, taking over from Peter Taylor, but he couldn't prevent Wycombe being relegated back to 'League Two' at the end of the 2009/10 campaign. However, he led Wanderers to automatic promotion the following season with a third place finish. But a disappointing season back in 'League One' led to an immediate return to the basement division. He has been handed a two year contract by The U's and comes after their previous boss, Chris Wilder, walked out in January in favour of the Manager's position at relegation threatened Northampton Town.

Bottom side Torquay look to be slipping away after a 1-0 defeat at Cheltenham.

MIDFIELDER ON LOAN|
(Friday 14th March 2014)
Wanderers confirmed on Friday afternoon the signing of Chesterfield midfielder Sam Togwell on an initial one-month loan. The 29 year old was born in Beaconsfield and arrives at Wycombe having started his football with the youth setup at Crystal Palace and watching Wanderers as a youngster. "I used to get the bus down to Adams Park from Bourne End on Saturday mornings and I used to love coming down and watching football" he told the press on the day he agreed his move to Adams Park. His senior career saw him make his debut for The Eagles aged 17 in December 2002, before loan spells with Oxford United, Northampton Town and Port Vale. In 2006 in joined Barnsley, making 66 League appearances before a move to Scunthorpe United in August 2008. Togwell clocked up more than 160 apps for Iron and appeared in the 2009 League One Play-Off Final victory over Millwall at Wembley.

Prior to his move to Adams Park he had made 59 appearances for The Spireites - including 9 this season (none of which have been on the losing side).
