Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth is encouraging people in the area to attend a Non League fixture in Buckinghamshire.

The 48-year-old, who has managed just short of 500 games for the Chairboys, is urging those who live in and around the county to be present at Flackwell Heath FC’s latest fixture on January 22.

This is because Flackwell are celebrating the news that their popular chairman, Terry Glynn, has defeated prostate cancer for a second time.

To mark the good news, the Heathens had planned to allow fans and spectators to visit Wilks Park for free when they played Broadfields United on December 28, 2021, on the basis that a donation to the Prostate Cancer UK charity is made.

However, due to Covid-19 cases and waterlogged pitches, many Non League games during the festive period were called off, which included the fixture to celebrate Mr Glynn’s all clear.

Thankfully, a new date has been penned in, and people all cross the county and beyond are now able to visit Flackwell’s home, for when they face Arlesey Town this weekend.

Speaking after his side defeated Oxford United on January 15, Ainsworth said: “Get down to Flackwell Heath!

“I proudly wear my prostate cancer badge and it is brilliant news that he has successfully beaten that terrible disease.

“So if you fancy a day at Flackwell Heath, they’ve played a big part in Wycombe’s history, get yourself down there if you can’t get to Morecambe, but if you can get up there [to Morecambe], we need you too.”

Those who attend could also win a signed Wycombe shirt from the first-team squad.
