Ex-Wycombe Wanderers defender Alfie Mawson has unveiled his highlight of the season.

The 29-year-old hung up his boots on February 14 this year due to a persistent knee injury.

He signed a one-year contract with the Adams Park club last summer and played 21 times for the club in all competitions.

Speaking to the press ahead of this weekend’s home match against Barnsley, another of his former sides, he told the Free Press: “[The 1-0 win against] Oxford away was brilliant.

“It was a derby and the last time we played Oxford away when I was Wycombe we won.

“That was great for me.

“We had the incident with the supporter in the stands so that makes you realise how lucky we are to be healthy, let alone play football.

“It was in a derby for a club that I love and that was the game where I thought, ‘yeah, this is it - I’m back’.

“We had our backs against the wall and their fans were getting on their players to try and get a result.

“Our fans were in the corner signing us along so when the final whistle went, I remember thinking we deserved that.

“I remember hugging JJ [Joe Jacobson] at the end and we almost squeezed each other to death.

“Games like that are brilliant as people usually write us off in those fixtures – that was the game I loved the most.”

In this fixture, Mawson brilliantly assisted Chris Forino for the only goal of the contest, which was Wycombe’s first win at the Kassam in eight years.

It also increased their brilliant run against the U’s, which was stretched to four games unbeaten.

That run has now been extended to five.

Speaking on Forino’s goal, Mawson added: “I also got that assist for Chris Forino too and seeing him in the team is good to see.

“I’ve been keeping an eye on the younger ones to see how they are doing and it’s good for them to get this experience, and they’re getting their rewards.

“Just being included in matchday squads for a League One side at a young age is brilliant.

“I hope they’re taking it all in and Chris is doing well at the moment.

“I hope we can keep him.”

This weekend’s match between Wycombe and Barnsley has been dedicated to the former Chairboys defender.
