Down Memory Lane: 95 Years of Loakes Park Life

Revisit Wanderers' former home.

7 September 2020

While Wycombe completed three successful decades at Adams Park by clinching a momentous promotion to the Championship under Gareth Ainsworth, there were plenty of goals and glories at their previous home.

In the Wanderers’ Ex-Players’ Association’s sixth video of the summer, Memory Lane this time takes us back to Loakes Park where the club spent 95 of its 133 years and built ever-lasting memories. Roll back the clock and relive some of wonderful achievements before even Bayo, Blooms and JJ were twinkles in their parents’ eyes and heroes to today’s supporters.

Remember many of the men who previously made their own special mark in the Blues’ history books. From Frank Adams to Len Worley; from Bodger Horseman to Mark West;  from Jim Kipping to John Maskell. Heroes all. And stories from every one of the nine decades as WWEPA celebrate more of their members’ successes which helped make the club what it is today.

Via the club’s YouTube Channel, also catch up on some previous Glory Days. And over the next few months, we’ll be highlighting some other of the club’s great moments and greatest characters.

Coming soon……

  • Bodger & Mask. An affectionate reminder of two of the club’s great names of the 1960s & 70s - Tony Horseman, scorer of an unbelievable 558 goals in 939 matches and teammate John Maskell who kept them out at the other end in a 16-year career as first choice goalkeeper.
  • The Big Move. Controversy over the switch from Loakes Park to Adams Park and the early glories of the 90s at the new ground under Martin O’Neill.
  • The night Mourinho came to town. A look back at the outstanding League Cup run of 2007 which ended with Paul Lambert’s Blues locking horns with Jose’s all-star Chelsea outfit.

And so many more magic moments to come…………
