Me and my Wycombe - Hannah Styles

22 August 2015

Hannah Styles tells her story of following the Blues.

Where do you sit/stand? In the terrace to the right of the goal post, in the same exact spot every game.

Who do you come to games with? I attend games with my friend Lisa Bowker. Many people think that we are mother and daughter but in fact we met in the terrace at Adams Park and sort of adopted each other!

How long have you been a supporter? Nine years

What made you first start coming to matches? I began attending games when I was six years old; my whole family would spend Saturdays together in the Family Stand at Adams Park watching the Chairboys. However, when I started secondary school I lost touch with the game, but in 2011 I attended a B&B Cup game on a cold, wet Tuesday night game and I was sold. I have just celebrated my 100th consecutive Wycombe game on the opening day of the season against York.

What was your first match as a fan? My first game was at home to Wrexham in 2001. The score was 5-2, not that I remember much of it at all.

What has been your favourite moment supporting the club? I’ve enjoyed so many fantastic moments - of course Wembley was fantastic, surviving at Torquay was a moment I’ll never forget and supporting the Blues out in France this summer was brilliant, but my favourite has to be the final five minutes in the play-off home leg against Plymouth last season. It was the slowest five minutes of my life but it was so exciting and tense; hearing the whole of Adams Park in song gave me goose bumps and the scenes that followed were unforgettable.

Who’s the best player you’ve seen during your time as a fan? Many Wycombe fans will agree with me when I say Alfie Mawson was a brilliant player for us. He was part of a fantastic back five last season and contributed to our goal total - he was a quality player and I have no doubt he’ll play at the highest level.

Who’s been your favourite player to wear the quarters and why? Alfie Mawson was my favourite player, he was great on the pitch and we had the pleasure of getting to know him, great guy! However, Ryan Sellers is becoming a new favourite of mine, he looked great in pre-season, scored a cracking goal at Basingstoke and is just an all-round great guy. Me and Lisa are so lucky to be his shirt sponsor this season!

Tell us a funny story from your time supporting the club? At Morecambe away last year we were discussing ideas with Matt Bloomfield for his testimonial evening. We began talking and a suggestion of his face in fireworks came up, he thought I meant I wanted to set him on fire! I was totally embarrassed and we were nearly in tears laughing!

What does the club mean to you? The club means the world to me, the many hours we spend travelling to games, volunteering and singing away are all worth it, and the club even inspired me to study a football business degree at Wembley stadium so that one day I am able to work in this exciting industry!

Describe Wycombe Wanderers in three words: Together, proud & ambitious.
