300 not out for Blooms!

22 November 2013

Matt Bloomfield says he was too caught up in Wanderers’ 2-0 win at Crewe on Tuesday to realise that it was his 300th appearance in a Wycombe shirt.

Blooms, who is entering his testimonial year at Adams Park, came on as a second-half substitute and helped the Blues comfortably knock out their League 1 opposition, before being informed of his own personal achievement.

“I actually didn’t realise at the time!” the midfielder told Chairboys Player. “It was a really proud moment for me when I was told after the game and to get to 300 is a bit of a milestone.

“I was hoping it was going to come a bit sooner, but the suspension obviously delayed it a little bit. I’m really chuffed and it’s a really proud moment for me and another little milestone to tick off in my Wycombe career.

“You don’t want to remember these things being in a loss. To come in a victory and in such a good performance from the lads is special.”

When asked about whether any particular game stood out for him, Bloomfield added: “In my current thinking it would be the Southend game.

“To come back and actually get on the pitch after a year was pretty memorable. There were some moments when I didn’t think it would come, so the Southend game stands out for all the right reasons.

“I want to carry on my career here as long as I can. I love playing for this club, I’ve loved the nearly 10 years that it’s been and all 300 appearances have been great. 

“I’ve got a lot of ambition left in football and I’ve got a lot of drive. I’ll keep going as long as I can that’s for sure!”

Wanderers make the trip to Sky Bet League 2 title-hopefuls Chesterfield on Saturday, and Bloomfield believes there is no better time to end their poor record at the Proact Stadium.

He said: “We have struggled there and we haven’t got many points there at all. We’ve come away on the back of a few beatings and we’re looking forward to trying to turn that around.

“After such a good away performance on Tuesday night, what better time to follow that up with a game on Saturday!

“They’ve spent money and have signed some good, experienced players, so they’ll be there or thereabouts come May. If we can be just behind them or in front of them then we won’t have done too much wrong.

“A couple of years ago we went there in League 1 and the game came at an important time as we thought we had a chance of getting out of it.

“That was particularly disappointing, but those matches are all in the past and we’re looking good at the minute and we have a lot of competition for places.

“Our away form has been decent and coming off the back of Tuesday we are looking forward to going there and proving that we’re a good side.”
