Doctor Gina Allan leaves Wycombe Wanderers this summer with the club’s very best wishes after 22 years of exceptional service.Gina arrived at Adams Park in 1993, around the time of the club’s promotion to the Football League, and instantly became a popular figure due to her attentive and caring nature with players and staff alike.
Her dedication to Wycombe Wanderers earned her the Outstanding Contribution prize at the club’s annual awards dinner in 2009, and this year she was entered into the Football League’s ‘Club Heroes’ as the deserving candidate from the Chairboys’ staff.
Director Ivor Beeks, who worked alongside Gina for many years during his tenure as chairman, paid tribute to the departing doctor:
“Gina is a fantastic lady and one of the most caring people I have had the pleasure to have known and worked with. She is the ultimate professional and has delivered first-class medical attention over such a long period of time.
“One of many examples of her commitment came during our early years in the league when we played away to Plymouth, and the team had travelled down on the Friday night. Keith Ryan was struggling with a foot injury and needed a pain-killing injection in order to play the game.
“Gina made her own way down all the way to Plymouth by train on the Saturday morning to administer the injection and enable Keith to play. She did so with no fuss whatsoever and that tells you all you need to know about her commitment.
“On behalf of everyone at the club, I’d like to thank Gina for everything she has done during her 22 years with us and wish her every success for the future.”
