150 not out for Johnson

31 August 2012

Leon Johnson has spoken of his pride at making 150 appearances for the Wanderers – but has now set his sights on joining the 200 club.

“In this day and age, to stay at one club for a long time is quite rare, especially in lower league football. There is a big turnover of players and I’ve seen a million and one faces since I’ve been here! There’s only me and Blooms (Matt Bloomfield) left from the day I joined.”

“I enjoy every game, obviously even more so when we win. My next goal is to make 200 appearances for the club and then go on from there.

“It’s a good landmark to reach,” he told “I’ve really enjoyed my time here. It’s nice to hit 150 appearances for one club, but I’m hoping to make a lot more.

Johnson’s played a pivotal role in the club’s success since arriving at Adams Park in 2007, helping the Blues achieve promotion to League 1 in 2008/09 and 2010/11.

The centre-back reached the milestone when he appeared against his former club Gillingham last Tuesday.

“I appreciate the way they’ve supported me - they’ve always been brilliant and never had a bad word to say… long may that continue!”

He said: “The fans have always been good to me, whether I play good or bad. I think they realise and appreciate that I give 100% when I go out on the pitch.

The 31-year-old has built a strong relationship with the Wycombe supporters during his five years at the club – something he values greatly.    

“The promotions definitely stand out. They were both as good as each other, but I really enjoyed the last one – we worked hard, it went down to the wire and we got over the line.”

He added: “We’ve always been involved in something - it’s been a rollercoaster. Play-offs, promotion, relegation, promotion, relegation, and hopefully we can add another promotion to that this season.
