Luke Harrison to lead teams out

19 April 2013

Lee Harrison’s son Luke will lead out Barnet and Wycombe Wanderers in the last ever league fixture at Underhill on Saturday.

“He’s been desperate to do it and he’s got his shirt done with Gareth Ainsworth’s number on it, so we’ll be having a chat about that!

“At least one of us will be on the pitch Saturday!” Lee told Chairboys Player. “I’m pleased he’s going to be doing that and I’m sure both sets of fans will be pleased to see him out there.

Luke, 11, is now in remission after being diagnosed with kidney cancer last year.
“He’s really looking forward to it and it’ll be a proud moment for me.”

Harrison made over 300 appearances for Barnet and enjoyed a testimonial in 2011, but says there will be no sentiment at the weekend despite wanting to see his former club stay in the Football League.

He said: “When the fixture list came out, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t look at it and think it was ironic that it would be our last away game, even more so that it’s the last game at Underhill.

“There’s so much character about the place – you look at the slope, it’s unlike any other side and there’s lot of good memories for me.”
He added: “I’m looking forward to it but I’m looking forward to going there with Wycombe.  

“I’m 100% Wycombe. This club has made me feel so welcome with everything I’ve gone through in the past year. Everyone’s been fantastic and this is where my loyalties lie.”
