Wycombe face final-day relegation fight
HIGH Wycombe chairman Geoff Morgan says staying up this season would give him as much joy as winning the title last year.
Wycombe have had a torrid summer and go into the final round of fixtures with relegation from the Home Counties League Division One a very real prospect.
Defeat at Banbury on Saturday would open the door for both North Mymms and Welwyn Garden City, and Morgan admits it’s not an unthinkable set of results.
He expects North Mymms to beat already relegated Potters Bar, and thinks Welwyn’s match with Tring Park is 50/50.
He said: “If we don’t win on Saturday’ we’ll more than likely go down, and if I was going somewhere to play the last game I wouldn’t have picked Banbury, that’s for sure.
“But I believe the lads have the talent to go there and win and if they do it will feel as good as winning the title last year.”
However, the chairman is not at all impressed that the season has come down to this.
He said: “We could and should have sorted this out halfway through the season. We should have played tougher cricket but that passion has not been there this year and I don’t quite know why.
“We are still one of the top clubs in the country, but the focus always comes back to your top side and we have to assess what we’ve achieved this season, which is next to nothing.
“I don’t see many positives.
“I will be absolutely gutted if we get relegated, but we have identified where we’ve gone wrong and there will be changes next year, that’s for sure.”
As part of that, former spin king Chris Sketchley has been appointed club captain and Morgan also expects an influx of new players during the winter, regardless of what division the first team are playing in.
