Dave Carroll - Testimonial Season 1997/98
- Testimonial Match - v Leicester City - Wednesday 12th November 1997
A slightly disappointing crowd of around 3,000 braved the cold weather on Wednesday night for Dave Carroll's Testimonial against Leicester City. Two goals from Kim Casey earnt a Dave Carroll XI a 2-1 victory against Martin O'Neill's boys with Steve Guppy swaping shirts at half-time to join up with some of his former team mates. An array of old faces turned out to pay tribute to Jesus, with the biggest cheers being reserved for Paul Hyde, Terry Evans and the legendary Super Simon Garner. Gary Parker gave Leicester an 8th minute lead with a low shot which had the Valley End chanting 'dodgy keeper' to Hydey. Casey equalised 4 minutes later and eventually slotted in the winner with 12 minutes remaining. Five-a-side expert Chuck Moussadik was amongst many obscure second-half substitutions for Wycombe that included John Gregory showing us how to pass the ball and Alan Parry showing his age.
