Jordan Wiles tells his story of following the Blues.Name: Jordan Wiles
Where do you sit/stand? Beechdean Stand
Who do you come to games with? I now come to games with my girlfriend Lauren after I converted her into a Wycombe fan.
How long have you been a supporter? 11 years
What made you first start coming to matches? My brother used to go on a regular basis and he had a free ticket and he didn’t want it to go to waste, so I went and then got hooked on the whole experience.
What was your first match as a fan? My first match was 12th March 2005. It was home to Chester City and we won 4-2 - Nathan Tyson scoring twice, Gus Uhlenbeek and Roger Johnson also scoring. We went 1-0 down and scored three goals in seven minutes (I think!).
What has been your favourite moment supporting the club? I have enjoyed so many great moments which includes: the 2007 Carling Cup run, the great escape at Torquay, the last 5 – 10 minutes of the play-off semi final (which were the longest minutes ever). However seeing Wycombe at Wembley despite the result was such a fantastic day and something I will never forget.
Who’s the best player you’ve seen during your time as a fan? After having a long think about this I think a lot of Wycombe fans will agree that Alfie Mawson was amazing for us. He was part of a fantastic defence last year and he also contributed in some keys goals too. Other mentions include Joe Jacobson, Luke O’Nien, Jason McCarthy, Matt Bloomfield, Sam Wood and Gareth Ainsworth.
Who’s been your favourite player to wear the quarters and why? I think Alfie Mawson was my favourite player. He was a fantastic player for us and he really deserves his move up in the Football League. However, Joe Jacobson, Matt Bloomfield, Jason McCarthy and Luke O’Nien are my other favourites. They all have that never give up attitude and also have a huge work rate.
Tell us a funny story from your time supporting the club? A few moments there have been. Barnet away this season where a steward looked like Harry Potter and we started singing about him. Another one was listening to the players warming up this season and one of them popped up and said “if you slow down any more we will give you a parking ticket” which got us cracking up with laughter. Also the 2009/10 season at MK Dons where we scored in the 90th minute to win 3-2 and I fell down the stairs celebrating.
What does the club mean to you? This club means the world to me. I always feel that it is important to support your local teams. I never thought I would feel so passionate about this great football club. Supporting this club will take you through every emotion possible and I love the bond between the players, staff and the fans. All the emotions and the travelling up and down the country is all worth it. Also seeing Wycombe wanderers at Wembley for the first time was one of the moments I will never forget and made me proud to support this fantastic club.
Describe Wycombe Wanderers in three words: Together, Passionate and Amazing.
