Tyson back to finish "unfinished business" with the Chairboys

Nathan Tyson gives his first interview after joining the club on a one-year deal.

27 July 2017

Nathan Tyson has spoken of his delight after re-joining the club on a one-year deal.

The forward returns to Wanderers after an 11-year absence following a successful trial during pre-season, and hopes to produce similar form to that of his last spell at Adams Park.

The striker scored 39 times in two years with the Chairboys after joining from Reading in 2004, and later played for Nottingham Forest, Derby County, Doncaster Rovers and most recently Scottish Premier League side Kilmarnock.

Now back in the quarters, Tyson, speaking after the pre-season victory over AFC Wimbledon, is looking to pick up where he left off.

"The opportunity came along where I've been on trial for the last few weeks which has been good and I've fitted in really well with the lads and I've really enjoyed it," he said.

"It was fantastic last time I was here, and I feel like this was the place where my career really did progress, and now having come back here there is still some unfinished business which I would like to finish off.

"I thought we played really well (vs AFC Wimbledon), and especially in the first half I thought we dominated the game.

"It was just a fantastic team effort and that's what the manager had drilled into me since I've come back - that this is a team effort.

"It is great to see that, because you can go to a lot of clubs out there and you start to see a few cliques, but I don't see that here at all."

Tyson has played for many managers across an impressive career, but was full of praise for Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth, and feels the future of the club looks bright with him at the helm.

"I've been very impressed with him (Ainsworth) so far, he has made me feel very welcome and he's been fantastic with me.

"I know Barry Richardson from my Forest days as well and he has always encouraged me, and it's nice to see that the manager is out there encouraging the players every day which is refreshing to see.

"He is a new-age manager where I think the club is very much going to benefit from that, and the whole of the team have been great as well as they have been very welcoming and I'm really grateful for that."
