“I remember when we got beat against Bristol Rovers [April 2014] and we were looking at the doldrums of Non League football, she was as passionate as she would have been today [January 15], in singing, shouting, and cheering.

“There is a group of people that have really driven this club forward through the noise that they make, and some of the goals that we have scored in the terrace end is because of Lana, her friends, and family who get behind this team and who are proud of to be Wycombe Wanderers fans.

“I was proud to hold her shirt up today and that was for her.”
