New deal for Dom!

Midfielder pens new one-year contract.

1 July 2019

Dominic Gape has signed a new one-year contract to remain with Wycombe Wanderers, the club is delighted to announce.

The midfielder was one of three players – along with Scott Kashket and Adebayo Akinfenwa – who were offered a new deal following the culmination of the 2018/19 season, and manager Gareth Ainsworth is thrilled to complete a hat-trick of key signings ahead of the club’s second season back in League 1:

“Dom is an integral part of what we do – one of the first names on the teamsheet week in, week out – and I’m really pleased that he’s agreed to stay,” he said.

“I have no doubt that there will have been other clubs who’d love to have Dom in their team, because he’s a real classy player, someone who can win the ball back and get the team ticking over in the middle of the park.

“Above all that, he’s an outstanding professional and a hugely popular player around the whole club, so it’s great news that he’s staying and I’m excited to see him continue his development as a player with us here at Wycombe.”

The 24-year-old arrived at Adams Park initially on a loan deal from Southampton in 2016, and made the move permanent in January 2017 following a string of outstanding displays.

Not best known for his goalscoring exploits, Gape shot to stardom by scoring the goal that sealed Wanderers’ promotion to League 1 in April 2018, smashing home the winner at Chesterfield to secure his place in Chairboys folklore.

He’s netted twice more in 121 appearances for the club in total.
