Spring: Doc was key to decision

9 July 2012

Matt Spring says that Gary Doherty played a key role in him signing for Wycombe.

The duo know each other well from their days together at Luton Town and Spring revealed that Doherty's desire to return to Adams Park on a permanent basis helped him make his own decision.

"I spoke to Doc last time we played against each other (when Wycombe faced Leyton Orient) which wasn't too long ago," he told Chairboys Player. 

"He was up at Charlton but was thinking of coming here permanently, so when I knew Wycombe were getting in quality players like that it helped make my decision to come here."

Spring also knows boss Gary Waddock from his time at Luton.

He added: "I knew him anyway and have done for a long time now. I was 17 when I made my debut next to Gary, so on and off I've known him a while and I've heard good things about him (as a manager)."

The signing of Doherty has proved very popular among Blues supporters and the centre-back is certain that midfielder Spring will also become a fans' favourite.

He said: "Spring is going to be a great signing, I'm certain of that. 

"He's a winner, he's had a lot of promotions, played at big clubs and is a top midfielder. I think he'll do really well for us."
