A Wycombe Wanderers fan who has arranged a charity match next month has admitted the event ‘is in doubt’ due to a lack of support.

George Gutteridge, who is the man behind the popular ‘Wycombe Way’ X account, hopes  the fundraiser will take place at Holloways Park, the home of Beaconsfield Town FC on Saturday, June 8.

The proceeds from the day will be donated to the PKD Charity – a cause close to the 23-year-old’s heart.

However, he admitted he has set a ‘deadline’ to try and increase numbers in both ticket sales and sponsors by next Tuesday [May 28].

Otherwise, the match will be called off.

He told the Free Press: “I’m stuck on 23 players, with nobody buying a spectator ticket so far.

“I’ve had no word from potential sponsors I’ve spoken to and haven’t been able to get in touch with ex-pros [who could play].

“With that said, the aim is to have two games.

“One kicking off at 3:30, the second at 5:30.

“Then from 7 o’clock onwards, there is a social event in the bar at the stadium including a raffle and auction.”

“The price to play in one of the two games is £20, £5 to enter the ground to watch the football.

“Entry to the bar in the evening is free although a donation is suggested.

“I’m on the lookout for donations for the raffle and auction, although, I have been unsuccessful so far.”

The inspiration for the charity match came after the inaugural ‘Wycombe Way’ fixture was a roaring success in 2023.

After Wycombe confirmed that members of the public could play on the Adams Park pitch in the close season, around 50 people signed up to take part in the event.

He continued: “This is to raise money for PKD Charity, a special cause for the family.

“Mum has just had a successful kidney operation, and having the disease myself, will one day need the same treatment.

“PKD Charity is looking for a cure for Polycystic Kidney Disease, a hereditary condition affecting some 70,000 people in the UK.”
