While Wycombe bask in the glory of promotion to the Championship, the Wanderers Ex-Players Association has also helped in the last decade to keep memories alive of former heroes.
At their popular annual dinners, they’ve paid tribute to players, managers and teams of every era. The club are delighted to show a selection of videos produced by WWEPA’s John D Taylor which can remind supporters young and old of past glories.
