Me and my Wycombe - Emily Isaac

12 September 2015

Emily Isaac is the latest to tell the story of her support of the club.

Where do you sit/stand? Terrace.

Who do you come to games with? My dad.

How long have you been a supporter? I have been a supporter for a few years, but only attended a few games. Now that I’m older I come regularly.

What made you first start coming to matches? When I was in primary school, some of the players used to come into assemblies advertising the next home game, but they also come in to do the football courses. When they mentioned the next home game and wanted our support, I would then go!

What was your first match as a fan? I can’t remember my very first game, although one of the early games I did come to was Wycombe vs Oldham Athletic, when Gareth Ainsworth was a player and we were in League 1 in April 2012. Can’t remember the score though!  (Editor: it was a 2-2 draw. Gareth was left on the bench and Oldham scored a last-minute penalty to equalise!).

What has been your favourite moment supporting the club? Exeter at home last season was my favourite. It was when we were awarded the penalty in the 12th minute of injury time. The silence around Adams Park before Hayesy took the penalty was quite moving and as soon as the ball hit the back of the net, every single Wycombe fan went mad! The scenes and the atmosphere were amazing and it will be one game I won’t forget. 

Who’s the best player you’ve seen during your time as a fan? Paris Cowan-Hall; he always had good skill on the ball and with his time at Wycombe he scored some great goals (the December record was good last year!). When I heard about his move to Millwall I was gutted but it was thoroughly deserved!

Who’s been your favourite player to wear the quarters and why? Alfie Mawson was my favourite. I thought very highly of him and I enjoyed watching him play. The skill that he came out with was brilliant and he was one class player. And yet again he earned another thoroughly deserved move up the Football League!

Tell us a funny story from your time supporting the club? At Barnet away this season, there was a steward who looked like Harry Potter and our fans started singing about him! Loved it!

What does the club mean to you? The club means quite a lot to me. Once I started coming more regularly I wondered what I was missing out on all those seasons ago! Also seeing my team play at Wembley made me proud to support this wonderful club. I guarantee every day I will talk about Wycombe Wanderers, one club I am very happy to be a part of.

Describe Wycombe Wanderers in three words: Amazing, fantastic and positive!
