Wanderers’ players learned more about the history of High Wycombe during a surprise scavenger hunt around the town centre on Tuesday morning.
The session formed the club’s latest ‘development day’, aimed at taking the squad away from their day-to-day training ground environment to enhance skills including teamwork, leadership and overcoming challenges.
Hosted in the Chiltern Taps pub on Oxford Road, the event began with each of the five groups composing a radio advert about the club, which were later recorded in the studio at Wycombe Sound, the town’s community radio station.
The groups then set off around the town, following a series of clues which took them to the site of the club’s old Loakes Park home, the Wycombe Museum, the high street and Eden Shopping Centre, in a race to solve the clues in the quickest time possible.
In a hotly-contested tie, teams captained by Adebayo Akinfenwa and Sam Saunders came joint first, with Akinfenwa’s group earning a time bonus for being judged to have composed the best radio jingle, and the Beast ended triumphant after a tie-break question.
Wanderers would like to thank Chiltern Taps for their hospitality plus Wycombe Sound for their help with the event.
