Wycombe defender Darius Charles has penned an emotional letter to the Wanderers fan.

The 33-year-old will leave the club when his contract expires in the summer after three seasons with the Adams Park outfit.

He will join the likes of Ryan Allsop, Cameron Yates, Giles Phillips and Andron Georgiou who will depart the club.

In his three seasons with the club, he played 43 times and scored twice.

Charles was a popular member of the squad

Both of his goals came in wins during their play-off winning season of 2019/20, with strikes coming against Sunderland and Bristol Rovers.

In his emotional letter, he said: “As one door closes so to shall another open.

“My time at Wycombe Wanderers has been nothing short of a rollercoaster of emotions, from the deepest depths of despair being told to retire, to the astronomical heights of promotion to the Championship.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to have had many great times and successes during my career, both personally and professionally, and all of them - as incredible as they were - pale in comparison to my time here.

Rob Couhig on Charles

“Professionally, reaching a level I’d never gone to before BUT personally as a man I’ve grown more in my three years at Wycombe than at any other time in my life.

“Because of this club I’ve learned to show myself love, compassion, understanding, care and kindness.

“I came to a club to play football and inadvertently stumbled across what it is to be a man of integrity.

“Because of the staff and my teammates I learned it was ok to be vulnerable, it was ok to cry, it was ok to be you because you are enough just as you are.

“This club showed me how to be comfortable to turn up in the world as my authentic self and there’ll never be a way to repay that.

Charles was given an award by Rob Couhig

“To all the fans who supported me when I was a burden to the club not being able to play that showed love and care: THANK YOU.

“This is not goodbye, simply a see you later.”

In the club’s end of the season awards, Charles was presented with the Chairman’s Choice award by Rob Couhig, for his ‘ fantastic contributions on and off the pitch in the face of injury and adversity during his time with the club so far.’
