Wycombe Wanderers 1-0 win over high flying Gillingham is their fifth win in a row, keeping them on course for possible automatic promotion to Coca-Cola League One. Apart from a 100% record over Christmas, and getting three points this Bank Holiday Monday against a Gillingham side who had won their last 5 League matches, the best news is keeping a clean sheet, as this is something the Chairboys have struggled to do this season.

As a Blues fan for the last 20 seasons, I first started supporting Wycombe when they were in the Vauxhall Conference whilst Martin O’Neill was there Manager. I remember watching my first match in 1991 when Dave Carroll scored a wonder goal in a 5-0 win over Merthyr Tdyfil. Despite finishing on 94 points that season, they lost out on promotion to the Football League on goal difference to Colchester United. However they were promoted the next season (1992/93) by a record margin and also beat Runcorn 4-1 to win the FA Trophy at Wembley in front of over 30,000 Wycombe Wanderers fans. Under the inspiration of Martin O’Neill the Blues won successive promotions by beating Preston North End 4-2 at Wembley in the Play-Off Final in front of a crowd of over 40,000 (My personal all time favourite Wanderers match!).

Since then they spent 10 consecutive seasons in League One, before being relegated, and have since gone up and down once more! However one massive highlight for me personally was the 10 match FA Cup run in 2001, when the Chairboys lost 2-1 in the FA Cup Semi-Final at Villa Park to Liverpool. The goal scorers that day were Emile Heskey and Robbie Fowler for Liverpool and Keith Ryan for the Blues. Subsequently Wycombe Wanderers Football Club have reached the Carling Cup Semi-Final, losing to the eventual winners Chelsea, so have done pretty well since the Club turned professional for the first time in their history in 1993.

Back to the present, and today’s 1-0 win in Coca-Cola League Two has set a new club record for scoring in 19 consecutive matches, so having previously won 6 straight away matches earlier in the season, could 2011 see the Blues win promotion back to League One? It is too early to say, as if “we” are I suspect we will need to concede less goals and keep more clean sheets!
