The manager of Wycombe Wanderers has been named among five legends of the town to be honoured by having a new fleet of buses named after them.

Alongside well-known politicians, including former Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, past mayors and community figures, Gareth Ainsworth will be celebrated as an immortal legend of High Wycombe.

Arriva Buses launched a regional campaign to find inspirational names suitable for their new fleet of single deck buses, which will be based in the town.

After many votes, the five legends were named as Frances Alexander, Peter Cartwright, Benjamin Disraeli, Ricki Akhter Hussein and Gareth Ainsworth.

According to Arriva Buses, the former Blues player was selected for the commitment he showed while lifting the team to new heights in getting them to the Wembley play-off final last season.

Dr Alexander, head of the Wycombe Environment Centre and spokesperson for sustainable issues, was chosen after serving the town as district councillor and mayor.

Likewise, Mr Cartwright, who was born in the town, has dedicated most of his life to the town, serving people as county councillor, district councillor and mayor.

Benjamin Disraeli was picked for being a historical figure for High Wycombe town.

And, Mr Hussein was selected for his charity and volunteer work as well as being a former councillor and deputy mayor.

The five buses, which will each carry the first names of a Wycombe legend, will serve the High Wycombe community, linking Totteridge and Castlefield with High Wycombe town centre.

Friends, family and colleagues of those who are to be honoured with a naming plaque will be able to see the buses for the first time at an unveiling event at Adams Park on September 11.
