Matthew's dream day out with the Chairboys, thanks to Wickes

28 April 2017

Young fan Matthew Boyd had a day to remember with a VIP experience with the Chairboys earlier this week, after his dad Jeremy won a competition run by EFL sponsor Wickes.

The pair live in Gibraltar but jetted across to the UK at the start of the week for a behind-the-scenes tour of Adams Park before visiting the club's training ground for a variety of surprises.

Nine-year-old Matthew, wearing his Wycombe shirt, was shown around the complex with his dad before watching a training session from the sidelines, taking penalties with his favourite player Sam Wood, showing off his dribbling skills to Joe Jacobson and beating his all-time keepy-uppie record thanks to advice from Luke O'Nien.

Matthew and Jeremy then headed inside to enjoy lunch with the squad, who posed for photos and signed the youngster's shirt as a memento of his day.

Father and son were last at Adams Park for the FA Cup third round triumph against Stourbridge in January but have booked their flights to return to Wycombe for next weekend's League 2 clash with Cambridge United.

Jeremy said: "I am so proud that my son has chosen Wycombe as his team to support. The credit for this belongs to the team through their example of hard work, organisation, preparation, team work and dedication.

"Every single word said to him by the players and manager will stay with him for a long time indeed. It means a lot! We had an amazing day."
