'Anything But Blue' day goes off in style!

Wanderers embrace special matchday in support of Chiltern Samaritans.

20 January 2020

Wanderers 'Anything But Blue' matchday was celebrated in style at Adams Park, raising funds and awareness for the Chiltern Samaritans as Gareth Ainsworth's men recorded a last-gasp 2-1 victory over Rochdale.

The game of support was selected due to its proximity to 'Blue Monday', reportedly the most depressing day of the year, with increased rates of suicide amongst young men around this time of year.

With that in mind, the club invited Chiltern Samaritans to collect donations and hand out goodies and advice to visitors to the stadium, while the Chairboys asked its fans and players to wear 'anything but blue' in a bid to banish the blues.

Amongst those to get in the spirit were on-field PA announcer Michael Kenny, whose amazing technicolour dreamcoat ended up on match-winner Joe Jacobson, while manager Ainsworth ditched his traditional blue suit for a black leather number with red shoes.

Today (Monday 20th January) has been dubbed 'Brew Monday' by the Samaritans, urging people to have a cup of tea and a talk with someone about any problems they may be having, and the Samaritans helpline is available at any time by calling 116 123.
