Thursday Press session

At this week’s Press Conference, it will come as no surprise how happy everyone was after Wycombe sealed promotion at Chesterfield the previous Saturday. Gareth Ainsworth told Keith about the emotions of winning last weekend and becoming a League 1 Club. He spoke with pride about the performance on Saturday and how much he hoped the fans would enjoy the atmosphere at Adams Park against Stevenage in what should be a sell-out crowd. Keith thanked Gareth for the wonderful season the club had given the fans & the town and we’re glad to report that Keith did not cry on air!!

As a bonus, we have 2 interviews for you from the players. Keith spoke to Sido Jombati and all we’ll say is that it will have you in fits of laughter!!

Keith also spoke to Scott Brown which is a bit of a coup. To explain the background, Keith spoke to Scott just before his first ever game for Wycombe in August 2016 against Crawley Town. He got injured in that match and as a result, Scott said he would not speak to Keith again until the end of this season. Given that Wycombe had just got promotion, Scott & Keith thought it was safe to speak to Scott again. As well as Keith congratulating Scott on a great season, the Wycombe goalkeeper spoke about his goalkeeping kit, which he likened to what Phil Catchpole from BBC 3 Counties was wearing (a nice orange jacket if you want to know!). Like everyone at the club and in the town, Scott is looking forward to Saturday’s game.
