Report: Wycombe XI vs Maidenhead United

Sam Grace's young side fall to a clinical Maidenhead.

9 September 2021

A Chairboys development team took on Maidenhead United at Adams Park on Thursday in a behind-closed-doors fixture.

The match was the perfect opportunity for some of Sam Grace’s players to get competitive game time, as well as assess a number of trialists.

It was Wycombe who made the ideal start, as an Anis Mehmeti free-kick hit the back of the net from 25-yards within two minutes.

Despite some positive play from Wycombe going forward, with Connor Parsons and Mehmeti looking particularly smooth down the left-hand side, it was Maidenhead who made no mistake in converting their next opportunity as Emile Acquah neatly dinked a ball over onrushing Tyla Dickinson from a looped ball.

The away side finished the half strongly, doubling their lead in the process through Reece Smith.

It took a while for either team to get a hold of the second half, with a number of substitutes for both sides changing the make-up of the game.

It was the 75th minute when Maidenhead were able to increase their goal tally to three, as some shaky defending from the Chairboys saw a low ball across the box fired home at close range.

Recent signing Connor Parsons got himself on the scoresheet as the game drew to a close, heading home a beautiful delivery from James Clark in the 85th minute.
