Figures revealed at the Trust AGM on Thursday 26 November 2015 show that Wycombe Wanderers Football Club will declare a profit for a season for the first time in 14 years when accounts are officially filed in the New Year. Abreviated accounts show that the Club made a profit of 36,508 for the 2014/15 season compared to a loss of 245,924 the previous season. Meanwhile, Trust Chairman Trevor Stroud revealed that the original option to buy back the Training Ground in Booker had been lost due to non-payment of rent by the sister company owning the major assets.

Wanderers let a two goal lead slip as they drew 2-2 with Portsmouth at Adams Park. Michael Harriman and Garry Thompson had fired Wycombe into a 2-0 lead by the 30th minute but the visitors struck back on the stroke of half-time and then levelled eleven minutes into the second-half after the Wycombe defence went AWOL at a corner. Next game for Wanderers, who are now 9th in the table, is away to Bristol Rovers on Tuesday evening - Aaron Pierre will miss that game due a one match ban for reaching five yellow cards with a late booking versus Pompey.

Loan deadline day saw Wanderers confirm the arrival of two midfield loan signings from Brentford. They are 18 year old James Ferry and 20 year old Jermaine Udumaga. Ferry signed a new two year pro deal with The Bees earlier this week but has yet to break into First Team football at Griffin Park. Udumaga, who has also played for the youth set-ups at Charlton Athletic, Oxford United and Crystal Palace, signed for Brentford in June 2014 and made his First Team debut in the 4-0 League Cup defeat to Oxford United in August and followed this with three subsitute appearances in the Football League. Commenting on the deal via the official website, Garerth Ainsworth said: "James and Jermaine have played a lot of matches at youth level and we look forward to giving them the opportunity to experience a first-team environment in training and on matchdays." The Wycombe boss added: "Weve got a lot of games coming up and having them in the squad will give us extra options when we need them." They have been allocated numbers 24 and 25 respectively in the Wanderers squad, with each deal running until 23rd Dec 2015.

Following the match at Yeovil, Luke O'Nein and Arron Pierre join Michael Harriman on four yellow cards this season. The cut-off date for suspensions for five yellow cards in the Football League is 30th November - so all three need to avoid another yellow in Saturday's meeting with Pompey to avoid a one match ban. The cut-off date for ten yellows is Sunday 8th March 2016.

A Luke O'Nein strike on 70 minutes was enough for Wanderers to record their first ever League victory at Yeovil Town in ten attempts and in the process send The Glovers to the foot of the table. Wanderers are now 9th in the table - just a point off the play-off places and four points behind 4th placed Portsmouth who are the visitors to Adams Park next Saturday.

Wanderers conceeded a stoppage time goal as they drew 1-1 at Wimbledon. Southampton loanee Jason McCarthy had scored his first senior goal to open the scoring on 51 minutes but former Wanderers loanee Ade Azeez grabbed a controversial late equaliser for The Dons. The draw at Kingsmeadow moves Wanderers up a place to 11th in the 'League Two' table with 26 points - three points adrift of 7th placed Leyton Orient with two games in hand but 12 points behind leaders Plymouth who had a surprise home defeat to local rivals Exeter City.

Wanderers were dealt an injury blow this week with the confirmation from the Club, just prior to the meeting with Wimbledon, that Marcus Bean and Joe Jacobson have sustained injuries that will rule them out until the New Year. According to the official website: "Left-back Jacobson has aggravated a pre-existing back problem and is likely to be sidelined for four to five weeks, while Bean has sustained an ankle injury which is expected to take six weeks to heal."

Goalkeeper Alex Lynch has signed another loan deal away from Adams Park - this time to Conference National side Braintree Town in a deal running until 18th December. The 20 year old, who signed for Wycombe in the summer of 2014 from Peterborough United, hit the spotlight at the tail end of last season after stepping in for the injured Matt Ingram and playing in the play-offs games with Plymouth and Southend. Earlier this season Lynch spent a short time on loan with Wealdstone but was recalled early due to injury to Wanderers' third choice 'keeper Barry Richardson - while on 24th October he made his Football League debut in the 1-1 draw with Carlisle after another injury to Matt Ingram let him in for one game. Last season he also had loan spells at Hayes and Burnham.

Martin O'Neill has weaved his managerial magic again - this time taking the Republic of Ireland through to the finals of the European Championships to be held in France in 2016. Ireland beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 2-0 in Dublin on Monday evening to secure 1-1 aggregate victory following the first leg in ? the previous Friday. The victory came alongside former Wanderers Steve Walford and Steve Guppy - both are part of the coaching set-up with Ireland. Walford, originally a player with Wycombe, has assisted O'Neill since his managerial career blossomed at Adams Park in the early 1990's. Guppy, a player for four years under O'Neill, was coach with the Irishman at Sunderland and followed him to Ireland on his appointment in November 2013. The former Wycombe boss is set to return to Adams Park on Friday 20th November as a speaker at the Annual Wycombe Wanderers Ex-Players Association Dinner.

The Club confirmed on Monday that Jason Banton had returned early from his loan spell with Hartlepool United. The deal had originally intended to run until 3 January 2016 but the 22 year old failed to command a regular place in the Pools side, especially after the arrival of Portsmouth winger Kal Naismith. All five of his appearances while at Hartlepool came from the bench, including a substitute appearance in their FA Cup victory at Cheltenham - thus making him cup-tied and not eligible to play for Wanderers in the meeting with Millwall on Saturday 5th December. Banton signed for Wanderers in the close season from Plymouth Argyle but had started just three League games out of eleven.

Wycombe dropped two places to 12th in 'League Two' after sitting out their second weekend of the season due to international call-ups for the opposition. First Luton Town crept above the Wanderers on goal-difference following their 2-0 victory over Barnet at Kenilworth Road on Saturday, while Wimbledon's 0-0 draw at Portsmouth on Sunday sent Wycombe down another spot. However, Wycombe have two games in hand over all but one team above them. Wanderers and Luton both have 25 points, with just four points seperating the duo from 4th placed Portsmouth in a tightly packed top half of the table. Leaders remain Plymouth Argyle with 38 points from their opening 17 games, with Oxford United in 2nd with 33 points. 3rd place are Northampton Town on 31 points. The Cobblers are set to face a winding-up petition at the High Court in London on Monday (16 Nov), brought by the HMRC over 166,000 of unpaid taxes.

Wanderers went down 2-0 in their friendly with Leeds United at Adams Park - a goal in each half from Lee Erwin and Sam Byram saw the 'Championship' outfit, managed by former Boston United, Crawley and Rotherham boss, Steve Evans, get the better of Gareth Ainsworth's side. A crowd of just over 2,200 (including nearly 800 following Leeds) turned out for the match arranged due to both sides being out of action due to international games affecting their scheduled League fixtures. Next game, away to Wimbledon on Saturday 21st November.

The Trust have formally notified members of their Annual General Meeting to be held on Thursday 26 November 2015 at 7.30pm in the Vere Suite at Adams Park. The AGM is earlier than normal due to the rules surrounding Community Benefit Societies. In accordance with the Trusts Rules, one third of the current Trust Board is required to retire. John Bignell, Nigel Kingston and Trevor Stroud are therefore retiring from the Board and are offering themselves for re-election. Mark Bowring, David Roberton and Will Schafer-Peek are also offering themselves for election and a ballot will therefore be held to elect Directors to the three available positions. The candidates will be speaking at the AGM again this year. The meeting will also provide an opportunity for questions and answers and to hear from Club Chairman Andrew Howard. Membership of the Trust has now reached 1,066 (654 Adult, 224 Senior, 188 Junior). AGM notice on Trust website

Wanderers confirmed on Tuesday the extension to the loan of Southampton centre-half Jason McCarthy. The 19 year old originally joined on an initial one month loan deal in October 2015 but this has now been extended until 3rd January 2016. Commenting via the official website, Gareth Ainsworth said: "Jason had only played three minutes of professional football before he came here but hes slotted in extremely well and proved himself to be a very talented defender, as well as a popular and likeable member of the squad. Hes shown that he can adapt to the physical side of League 2 football as well as play the ball out from the back and Im delighted that hell remain an important part of our squad for another eight weeks."

Wanderers will travel to 'League One' Millwall in the Second Round Proper of the FA Cup following the draw made on Monday evening. Winners in the Second Round tie, that will played on the weekend of 5th December, will receive 27,000 in sponsorship money. The meeting with The Lions will provoke memories of the 2000/1 clash between the two sides at the same stage when Wanderers triumphed 2-1 at Adams Park following a 0-0 draw at The New Den.

Wanderers made relatively light work of progressing to the Second Round of the FA Cup following a 4-0 victory at Conference strugglers Halifax Town. Garry Thompson, Sido Jomabti, Max Kretzschmar and Aaron Amadi-Holloway got the goals. Wanderers will bag 18,000 for their victory over Halifax, along with a 12,500 payout for having the meeting switched to Sunday to meet the BBC's Final Score coverage plans.

The Club have announced a home friendly with Leeds United on Friday 13th November at Adams Park with 7.45pm kick-off. The meeting has been arranged because both sides are without a game that weekend due to international call-ups. Wanderers' only previous meetings with Leeds came during the 2009/10 season in 'League One' - Wycombe losing 1-0 at Adams Park in front of 8,400 all-ticket gate - while later that season on a snowy Saturday in January, Jon-Paul Pittman's equaliser earned a 1-1 draw at Elland Road before a 24,383 crowd. Ticket prices have since been confirmed as: Adults 12 and Concessions 7 for all areas of the ground open. A 2 discount is available for Season Ticket holders who book before 5pm on Thursday 12th November. The Club have stated that the upper tier of the Woodlands Stand [Frank Adams Stand] will be closed for this fixture.
