Blues stars dine out at Gigneys

14 October 2015

Wanderers enjoyed a team bonding evening at the new Gigneys restaurant in Windsor on Tuesday evening.

Gigneys is a unique gourmet burger restaurant staffed by apprentices and newly qualified catering and hospitality students, creating opportunities for ambitious, hard working young people aiming to pursue careers in the industry.

Recently launching their first restaurant in Windsor, Gigneys became an executive box holder at Adams Park and invited youngsters from Windsor FC Youth and Swallows Warriors as guests in their box for a recent home game.

14 of the squad - including new loan signing Jason McCarthy - made the trip to Windsor to sample the cuisine, and captain Paul Hayes was grateful for the hospitality:

"It was great to get together with the lads and have a laugh over some really nice food. On behalf of the squad I'd like to thank Gigneys for having us and I'd highly recommend the restaurant to any Wycombe fans," he said.

Neil Peters, commercial director of East Berkshire College, said "It was a pleasure for Gigneys and their apprentices to host Wycombe Wanderers FC on Tuesday night for a spot of team bonding.

"Gigneys gourmet burger restaurant in Peascod Street, Windsor, provides top class food and service via its apprentices, all of which study at East Berkshire College. Gigneys' staff are a mix of qualified college students and apprentices, gaining work experience for a year until they move to one of a host of supporting partners, from Marriott Hotels to Stoke Park, LEGOLAND Hotel and Resort to Heston Blumenthal Hinds Head and Crown in Bray.

"Gigneys is a social impact company supporting the local community, schools, colleges and sports teams and is delighted to have firm links with WWFC, entertaining a number of local partners, schools and youth football teams at their Adams Park box on WWFC matchdays."
