Wycombe will be walking up Wembley Way on April 7 as they face Peterborough United in the EFL Trophy final.

It's the first time in the competition's history that the Chairboys have made the final two.

So as we prepare for the showpiece at the home of English football, let us look back at the seven previous times the Chairboys walked out onto that Wembley pitch.

1. 1957 FA Amateur Cup final: Bishop Auckland 3-1 Wycombe Wanderers

Wycombe’s first-ever appearance at Wembley ended in defeat as they fell at the final hurdle to Bishop Auckland in the 1957 FA Amateur final.

This was Auckland’s third title in three seasons, and despite playing well in the showpiece, it just wouldn’t be Wanderers’ day at Wembley.

The North East side took the lead through Billy Russell’s 13th-minute goal, before Frank Smith equalized for the Chairboys just before half-time.

However, Derek Lewin and Warren Bradley ended up sealing the win for Auckland.

It was the Chairboys’ second appearance in the final since they last won the competition in 1931.

They defeated Hayes 1-0 in the final which was played at Highbury, the former home of Arsenal.

2. 1991 FA Trophy final: Wycombe Wanderers 2-1 Kidderminster Harriers

The first of three Wembley appearances for Wycombe in the 1990s, the Chairboys travelled to North London to take on Kidderminster Harriers in that year’s FA Trophy final.

Glyn Creaser led out the Wycombe boys onto the hallowed turf in front of a bumper crowd of 34,842 spectators, with around 25,000 fans of them arriving from Buckinghamshire.

Keith Scott and Mark West got the goals that day as Wanderers secured their first FA Trophy win.

The scenes a day saw thousands of fans descend into High Wycombe town centre to celebrate the win.

A brilliant start to the Adams Park era.

3. 1993 FA Trophy final: Wycombe Wanderers 4-1 Runcorn

More than 30,000 people arrived at Wembley Stadium to watch Wanderers in action against Runcorn, as they entered the FA Trophy final for the second time in three years.

Martin O'Neill's men were making themselves known in the football world with brilliant displays in the Non League and in the cups.

And 1993 not only saw Wycombe gain promotion into the Football League, but it also saw them win the FA Trophy for the second time.

On the day, goals from Jason Cousins, Graham Hill, Steve Thompson, and Dave Carroll secured the cup for the Adams Park outfit as they added two more trophies to their cabinet in 1993.

4. 1994 Third Division (League Two) play-off final: Wycombe Wanderers 4-2 Preston North End

It was the Chairboys’ second promotion in two years as they entered the third tier of English football for the first time with a brilliant victory over Preston North End.

Three goals in five first-half minutes saw PNE take the lead through James Bryson before Steven Thompson equalised just 60 seconds later.

Paul Raynor gave Preston the lead again soon afterwards to make it 2-1 at half-time.

On 47 minutes, Simon Garner made it 2-2 before Dave Carroll bagged a 13-minute second-half brace to make it Wycombe 4-2 Preston, which confirmed the Chairboys’ second consecutive promotion.

5. 2015 League Two play-off final: Southend United 1-1 Wycombe Wanderers (Southend win 7-6 on penalties)

Wycombe’s first trip to the new Wembley Stadium ended in tears as they just missed out on a place in League One, following a gut-wrenching defeat to Southend United in the final.

Wycombe’s problems started straight from kick-off as Sam Saunders was injured just four seconds into the match with a muscle injury.

After no goals were scored within an hour-and-a-half worth of football, extra time was needed.

Five minutes into extra time, Wanderers went 1-0 up after Joe Jacobson’s free-kick hit the crossbar, where it bounced off Daniel Bentley’s back, and trickled over the line.

However, in the dying embers, Southend's Joe Piggot scored to level the game and send the final to a penalty shoot-out.

After five penalties each, the score was level at 3-3 with Matt Bloomfield missing his spot-kick.

It went into sudden death and sadly, Sam Wood’s penalty was saved by Bentley to earn a 7-6 win for the Essex side.

6. 2020 League One play-off final: Oxford United 1-2 Wycombe Wanderers

With the season being halted due to the coronavirus pandemic, the sporting world was left in limbo and nobody knew what was going on.

In the end, the League One teams decided to curtail the season on a points-per-game basis, and the magic number of 1.74 for the Chairboys saw them go from eighth to third in the final table.

They brushed aside Fleetwood in the semi-finals to take on Oxford United in the Thames Valley clash at an empty and wet Wembley Stadium.

Anthony Stewart gave the Chairboys the lead inside 10 minutes before Mark Sykes’ cross midway through the second half looped over Ryan Allsop.

But with 11 minutes to go, Oxford’s keeper in Simon Eastwood smashed into Fred Onyedinma in the penalty box and up-stepped Joe Jacobson to score the winner.

A day to remember for Gareth Ainsworth’s men.

7. 2022 League One play-off final: Wycombe Wanderers vs Sunderland, May 21, 2022

Despite the season being one to remember for the Chairboys with 83 points on the board, and memorable league wins over Plymouth Argyle, Oxford United, Bolton Wanderers and more, it wasn’t meant to be Wanderers at Wembley.

Around 23,000 people got behind the boys in blue but close to 50,000 Mackem’s descended into North London as Sunderland comfortably won promotion back to the Championship after a four-year exile.

It wasn’t our day, but it was a brilliant season.

8. 2024 EFL Trophy final: Peterborough United vs Wycombe Wanderers, April 7, 2014

A third visit to the Home of Football in five seasons for the Chairboys as they take on Peterborough United in their first-ever EFL Trophy final.

The Chairboys are unbeaten in their last five against the Posh, but the Cambridgeshire-based have got history in this competition, winning it back in 2014.
