Chairboys immerse themselves in the beautiful game at the National Football Museum

17 March 2016

Wanderers made the most of their stay in the north-west by enjoying a tour of the National Football Museum in Manchester on Thursday afternoon.

Gareth Ainsworth's men drew 1-1 at Accrington Stanley on Wednesday night and face Carlisle United at Brunton Park on Saturday, providing the opportunity for a team bonding break in the Lancashire area.

A recovery session in the gym on Thursday morning was followed by a trip to the museum in Manchester, where they watched a short film encapsulating how football touches the lives of people across the globe, from kickabouts in the street to playing on the biggest stage of all for your country.

The tour also walked them through a history of England's World Cup success in 1966, the story of the footballers who went to war in 1916, and there was even a piece of Wycombe history in the museum in the form of a famous photo of John Motson reporting from Adams Park during a blizzard at a postponed FA Cup match against Peterborough United.

Wanderers continue their preparations for the game on Saturday with a training session on Friday before continuing their journey north to Brunton Park.
