Wanderers will travel close to an additional 800 miles during the 2016/17 League season compared to the 2015/16 campaign. Wimbledon’s victory over Plymouth Argyle in the League Two Play-Off Final on Monday 30th May finalised the League Two make-up for the 2016/17 season. The Dons are one of four sub-100 mile journies lost for Wanderers compared to 2015/16.
League Two make-up 2016/17
(Tuesday 24th May 2016)
The Club confirmed on Tuesday (24th May) that out of contract midfielder Aaron Amadi-Holloway had agreed a two year deal with 'League One' Fleetwood Town. The move comes after Wanderers offered the out of favour player a new deal at Adams Park. However, this is likely to have been a 'token' deal in order to claim compensation under the 'under 24' ruling. An 'undisclosed fee' has been reported between the two sides. The 23 year old made 64 appearances, scoring 8 times, in his two seasons with the Wanderers. His last start was the home FA Cup tie with Aston Villa on 9th January 2016.

Wanderers will travel to Aldershot Town in a pre-season friendly on Tuesday 26th July (KO 7.30pm). The Shots are managed by former Wanderers boss Gary Waddock. The two sides last met in a pre-season game in August 2015 where Aaron Amadi-Holloway scored a late goal to earn a 1-1 draw for Gareth Ainsworth's side.
NEW KIT FOR 2016/17
(Tuesday 17th May 2016)
The Club confirmed on Tuesday (17th May) that O'Neills will be the official kit supplier for the Wanderers for the next three seasons. The Irish sportswear firm has made its name with the supply of Gaelic Football and Rugby shirts. The deal with Wanderers will be their first with the First Team of a Football League Club and the new kit designs are set to be revealed at a launch event at Adams Park on Sunday 10th July 2016. The 'first choice' kit will retain what is described by O'Neills as the 'iconic' light and dark blue quartered design. The second choice kit colours have yet to be revealed but will replace the 'Tequila Sunrise' design used for the past three seasons. Red and white is a favourite colour combination expected to be chosen.

Race for promotion FINAL TABLE 2015/16
(Sunday 8th May 2016)
Wanderers final league placing of 13th brings to and end a disappointing second-half of the season. Gareth Ainsworth's side topped the table after ten games and remained in the play-off places until a run of no wins from the final eight games saw the season peter out in disappointing fashion. Champions Northampton Town finished the season 13 points ahead of 2nd placed Oxford United who confirmed their automatic promotion with their 3-0 win over Wycombe on the last day. Meanwhile, Bristol Rovers sneaked into the 3rd 'straight up' spot with a stoppage time victory over already relegated Dagenham & Redbridge, while Accrington Stanley missed out on automatic promotion after drawing 0-0 at home to Stevenage - the only time in 2015/16 that Stanley had failed to score at home.
The 'League Two' play-off semi-final 1st legs will see Portsmouth host Plymouth Argyle on Thursday 12th May, while Wimbledon entertain Accrington Stanley on Saturday 14th May. The 2nd legs will be Plymouth v Portsmouth on Sunday 15th May (KO 6pm) and Accrington v Wimbledon on Wednesday 18th May (KO 7.45pm). The final will take place at Wembley on Monday 30th May (KO 3pm).
At the other end of the table, York City return to the National League (Conference) after four seasons back in the Football League - although one of those, 2013/14, they were losing play-off semi-finalists. Joining York will be Dagenham & Redbridge who were relegated after nine seasons in the Football League - their high point in the Football League came following promotion to 'League One' at the end of the 2009/10 season. However, The Daggers were relegated back to the basement division after one season and four seasons later see themselves back to their non-League roots. Coming up from the 'National League' will be Champions Cheltenham Town, returning after just one season out of the Football League. The Robins will be joined by the winner of the Play-Off Final between Grimsby Town and Forest Green Rovers at Wembley on Sunday 15th May (KO 4pm).

Wanderers' season ended on a low following a 3-0 defeat at Oxford United, with the hosts also confirming promotion to League One in front of capacity 11,800 attendance. Defeat and results elsewhere also saw Gareth Ainsworth's side fall to 13th place in the table - the lowest place of the season - having topped the table after ten games and remained in the play-off places until a run of no wins from the final eight games saw the season peter out in disappointing fashion.
