Wycombe midfielder Dominic Gape has signed a new one-year contract to remain at the club.

The midfielder was one of three players – along with Scott Kashket and Adebayo Akinfenwa – who were offered a new deal following the culmination of the 2018/19 season, and manager Gareth Ainsworth is thrilled to complete a hat-trick of key signings ahead of the club’s second season back in League 1:

Ainsworth said: “Dom is an integral part of what we do – one of the first names on the teamsheet week in, week out – and I’m really pleased that he’s agreed to stay.

“I have no doubt that there will have been other clubs who’d love to have Dom in their team, because he’s a real classy player, someone who can win the ball back and get the team ticking over in the middle of the park.

“Above all that, he’s an outstanding professional and a hugely popular player around the whole club, so it’s great news that he’s staying and I’m excited to see him continue his development as a player with us here at Wycombe.”

The 24-year-old arrived at Adams Park initially on a loan deal from Southampton in 2016, and made the move permanent in January 2017 following a string of outstanding displays.

Not best known for his goalscoring exploits, Gape shot to stardom by scoring the goal that sealed Wanderers’ promotion to League 1 in April 2018, smashing home the winner at Chesterfield to secure his place in Chairboys folklore.

He’s netted twice more in 121 appearances for the club in total.
