Dan Simpson - host of the club's Bean With The Shot online television programme - represented the Chairboys at the launch event for Quest TV's EFL coverage ahead of the start of the 2019/20 campaign.
Representing Wanderers alongside fans from each of the 72 EFL clubs, Dan joined the show’s host Colin Murray, EFL on Quest pundit Ian Holloway and EFL on Quest ambassadors Chris Powell and Karen Carney, to chat about the season ahead and get a sneak peek inside the EFL’s trophy cabinet.
On show at the event were the Sky Bet Championship, Sky Bet League One and Sky Bet League Two trophies. Dan Simpson took the opportunity to get up close with the League 1 trophy before it gets locked back away until the end of the season when he hopes Wycombe Wanderers will be hoisting it up in a victory celebration.
Dan has been a supporter of Wycombe for 27 years and we asked him some questions regarding the past and his favourite memories. He claimed that his most favourite memory was Marcus Bean scoring his first goal on his 100th appearance, with a 94th minute volley winner from edge of the box… He also stated that his favourite player is Akinfenwa. To finish off, Dan Simpson is looking ahead to the new season and hoped for a mid – table finish.
EFL on Quest host Colin Murray said, “Football is as much about the fans as it is about what happens out on the pitch, and EFL on Quest is different, I believe, because we acknowledge the fact that every club tells a different story.
“It’s a straight forward programme about football and fans, and it’s two hours long now which is a real step forward.”
EFL on Quest will be available to watch at 9pm each Saturday throughout the season starting on Saturday 3rd August and midweek on matchdays on Freeview channel 12, Freesat channel 167, Sky channel 144 and Virgin channel 217. This season’s on-air pundits will include Ian Holloway, Darren Bent, Dean Ashton, Sue Smith and Michael Brown. Fans can catch up on the show via QuestOD.co.uk. Screwfix is on board as the lead sponsor this year helping to bring you quality free-to-air highlights all season long.
