Matchday YORK 0 WYCOMBE 0
(Saturday 30th August 2014)
Wanderers sit in 5th place in League Two after five games following a 0-0 draw at York City. The home side, unbeaten in 21 games, stretching back into last season, but also with four straight draws this season, were frustrated by a resolute Wanderers display at the back and could have found themselves on the end of a defeat if Paul Hayes' 82nd minute effort had hit the back of the net.

Wanderers bounced back in style from their midweek home defeat to Tranmere to record an impressive 3-1 victory at Stevenage. Wycombe had to come from behind too after Darius Charles had put the home side up in controversial fashion on 31 minutes following a 50/50 challenge with Matt Ingram. However, goals from Paul Hayes and Peter Murphy put Wanderers into the driving seat before the break and Matt McClure sealed the points with another strike in the final minute of the ninety.

Wanderers' winning start to the 2014/15 campaign came to an abrupt halt as they went down 2-0 at home to Tranmere Rovers. Wycombe, unchanged for the fourth consecutive match, were left frustrated by a string of saves from visiting 'keeper Owain Fon Williams coupled with conceeding sucker punch goals from Cole Stockton on 19 minutes and then the killer on 54 minutes from the wonderfully named Max Power.

Know your history DECADES SINCE 6 OUT OF 6
(Monday 18th August 2014)
Wanderers' encouraging start to the 2014/15 League campaign has seen them win their first two League games of the season for only the third time since promotion to the Football League in 1993. The first occasion came at the start of the 1994/95 season with victories over Cambridge United (home) and Huddersfield Town (away), while ten years later at the outset of the 2004/05 campaign, three points, again at home to Cambridge United and then away to Chester City, saw Wycombe take six from six. But on both occasions they failed to win the third game.

Wycombe made it two straight League wins for the first time since February 2014 with a thoroughly deserved 3-1 victory over Carlisle United at Adams Park. Aaron Pierre headed home to give Wycombe the lead on 55 minutes but the visitors levelled two minutes through Brad Potts. But Gareth Ainsworth's side regained the lead on 77 minutes when Sean O'Hanlon handled in the box and Paul Hayes slotted home the resulting penalty. Wycombe confirmed their dominance and new found confidence when Peter Murphy netted in the 80th minute.

Football League Trophy COVENTRY IN FLT
(Saturday 16th August 2014)
Wanderers were drawn at home to Coventry City in the First Round of the Football League [Johnstone Paints] Trophy following the draw on Saturday morning. The tie will be played on Tuesday 2nd September. The two sides have only met once before in senior competition - a two legged Football League Cup meeting during the 1993/94 season - City scraping through 5-4 on aggregate after an amazing second leg at Adams Park where Wanderers almost overturned a 3-0 first leg win for City.
Football League Cup MILLWALL 1 WYCOMBE 0
(Tuesday 12th August 2014)
Wanderers went down 1-0 at Millwall in the First Round of the Football League Cup. The only goal of the game came from Matthew Briggs on 27 minutes but the resulting celebration where the Lions debutant removed his shirt earnt him a yellow card that would later prove dear. Briggs was cautioned again in the second-half for a reckless challenge on Sido Jombati and meant that Wanderers played against ten men for the remaining 30 minutes of the tie. However, dispite a valiant effort from the Wanderers it was Millwall who went through to the next round.

Matt Ingram has gone a long way to pledging his future at the Club by signing a new deal until June 2017. The 20 year old's current deal ran until June 2015 but commenting on his new contract, Ingram said "Iíve loved every minute of my time here and itís a real honour to wear the number 1 shirt for the club Iíve followed all my life. Extending my contract was an easy decision to make because Iím really enjoying my football and I have a huge amount of respect for the staff who are helping me develop as a player." The High Wycombe player made his Wanderers debut in March 2013 and has been ever-present in goal since and was hotly linked to a move to West Brom or West Ham in the summer.

Gareth Ainsworth made a late dip into the loan market before the start of the season with the signing of Brentford defender Alfie Mawson. He arrives on one-month 'youth loan' to provide cover for Gary Doherty, who the Club revealed has been sidelined with a knee injury. The 20-year-old previously spent time on loan at Maidenhead United, Luton Town and Welling United. Mawson will be able to play in the opening day game at Newport. The initial loan deals expires on 7th September.

Holloway was originally part of the Cardiff City youth system before switching to Bristol City when he was 18. Last season he made four appearances at Newport but was released in May 2014.

Beechdean Ice Cream have been revealed as Wanderers' new shirt sponsor for the next two seasons. The Speen based company are managed by Wanderers' new Chairman Andrew Howard, who commented, "A new kit always brings suspense and intrigue amongst the fanbase and we think it will be a great way to kick off the new season when the players walk out wearing a shirt which has never been seen before". The new first choice 'home' shirt retains the traditional quartered design but has mirrored the light and dark patterned compared to the previous season. The second choice kit will retain the same 'Tequila sunrise' design for the 2014/15 season but with the new sponsors logo replacing EA Sports FIFA 14. The new first choice kit will be worn for the first time at the away game at Newport County but on this occasion the shorts will be light blue to avoid a potential clash with the Welsh side's dark shorts.
(Wednesday 6th August 2014)
19 year old central defender Tom Fletcher has been loaned out to Chesham United on a three month deal. Last season Fletcher made eight loan appearances at Conference South side Bishop's Stortford. Fletcher, who joined Wanderers in July 2013 from Cheshunt, has made one brief First Team appearance during his time at Wycombe - coming on for the final minute of the Football League Trophy tie at Exeter on 3rd September 2013. The agreement with Chesham runs until 9th November 2014 and he will be eligible to play in the FA Trophy but not the FA Cup.
(Saturday 2nd August 2014)
A cool finish from 30 yards by new signing Peter Murphy was enough for Wanderers to beat Conference side Barnet at The Hive. The only goal of the game came midway through the second-half on a day when there was more injury concerns for Wycombe when Josh Scowen was stretchered off with an ankle injury following a fairly harmless looking challenge in midfield. Reports later indicated that Scowen was up and walking, albeit with a protective ankle boot. It's now onto the opening day of the Football League season away to Newport County on Saturday 9th August - kick-off 3pm.
