Club president Monty Seymour was in good spirits as he received a surprise visit from manager Gareth Ainsworth and Trust chairman Trevor Stroud on Thursday afternoon.The 102-year-old is residing at The Heights nursing home in Downley, and is kept up-to-date with regular news from his beloved Chairboys by frequent visits from friends and family.
This month marks Monty’s 50th anniversary as president of Wycombe Wanderers, which will be celebrated by the renaming of the Scores bar in his honour. “Monty’s” will feature a mini exhibition of photos and artefacts from throughout the club’s history, curated by the Ex-Players Association.
Gareth Ainsworth said: “Monty is a wonderful man and it was a privilege to spend time in his company. He has played such a fantastic part in this club’s journey through the decades and to reach 50 years as club president is an amazing achievement.
“He was bright and bubbly – just as he is always is when he comes to watch us play – and although his hearing loss makes it harder for him to communicate, he still has the same great sense of humour that we've seen at Adams Park down the years."
