Gaz: Fans' effort inspired us

21 January 2013

Gareth Ainsworth was full of praise for the Wanderers fans who ensured Saturday’s game against Dagenham & Redbridge beat the weather.

More than 80 volunteers arrived early to help clear the snow and Ainsworth revealed he based part of his team-talk on just how much the match meant to the supporters.

He said: “The Trust members and fans that were here at 7am this morning to get this game on were fantastic and in my team-talk I made the lads aware of how work some of the fans put in to get this game on and if they could put in the same efforts on the pitch they could win the game. As a whole Wycombe were together.

“They got the game on.When I turned up in the car-park at 11.30am, the fans had been here about four hours before me, one fan had a mate who had a snow plough, so they got that out, others had the shovels.

“Then there’s me turning up in a nice car and a suit, looking at those lot and there was only one thing I could do – so I went over and said thanked them because without them the game wouldn’t have gone ahead and we wouldn’t have got the three points.

“That speaks volumes about the club and the togetherness I want to get here. We’ve got some great people here and I want to try and get Wycombe back to its former glories, a real together club.

“Believe me, the players are very thankful for that – thank you very much for getting the game on, you were brilliant!”
