ADEBAYO Akinfenwa has become Wycombe Wanderers all-time EFL record goal scorer by scoring his 54th goal for The Chairboys breaking Nathan Tyson’s previous record, writes Robert Folker.

Wycombe Wanderers is the forwards 14th club but the 37-year-old hasn’t scored made more appearances or scored more goals anywhere else.

“The Beast” joined the Adams Park outfit from AFC Wimbledon in 2016 at the age of 34 and not many strikers would find the time to become the clubs all time EFL goal scorer.

The record goal came in a 3-1 defeat away to Doncaster which saw The Chairboys drop down to fourth but Wycombe are still in the fight for promotion.

The talisman was disappointed with the defeat but acknowledge the feat he has achieved and is not planning on stopping any time soon.

The striker told the ‘Ringing The Blues’: “I don’t know about club legends but 54 goals later.

“I sat down with the gaffer last week, he asked me has it gone better than I thought it was going to and I keep saying when I came in I had a point to prove, not to myself but a point to prove to say listen I can still play this game.

“I’d be lying if I think I’d score 54 goals at my age but I know what I’m good at and what I’m not so good at and I always have said this and try and concentrate on what I’m good at.

“Don’t get it twisted I’m blessed and I’m honoured. I said this when I equalled Nathan Tyson’s record and then to beat him, listen, I’m honoured.

“And I will hundred percent sit back and embrace this when the time is right.

“I’m not stopping now, 54 and counting, I’ve got to set my own record, there’s still a bit more miles in my legs and this head of mine so 54 and counting.”

Many critics believed Akinfenwa was signed by his manager as a PR stunt but 54 goals later and the frontman has repaid Gareth Ainsworth’s trust in him.

The Chairboys manager said: “He’s unbelievable on and off the pitch, I couldn’t be without him.

“I’m proud to have overseen all his goals, he’s just an absolute hero for me at Wycombe Wanderers.

“The greatest league, since the league days, goal scorer we’ve had, it’s a special moment for him”

“Unfortunately, it’s a defeat but we’ll be back and I’m sure it won’t be the end of Bayo’s goal scoring at Wycombe Wanderers.”

Wycombe don’t play again until the 14th of March and Akinfenwa will be hoping to help his side get back to winning ways as well as add to his record goals tally.

Akinfenwa has never reached the Championship but will be hoping his goals continue to fire Wycombe up the divisions.
