Wycombe Wanderers say they are ‘proud’ to have helped numerous local footballers get back in action by making use of pitch hire opportunities at Adams Park.

The club has opened its gates to a number of companies, club partners and local football teams for a series of friendly matches this month, ahead of renovation work on the playing surface ahead of the new season.

The WWT (Wycombe Wanderers Trust) members were given an evening they’ll never forget when they took part in a friendly match on the hallowed Adams Park pitch on Monday night.

Also over the weekend, Kane Ainsworth tasted victory at Adams Park with Eversley & California Under-14s with a 3-0 triumph over Ascot, following in the footsteps of his dad Gareth who scored twice in a 6-2 win for Wycombe over Soccer AM two weeks ago.

“We’re proud to have been able to play a part in helping hundreds of people get active and playing football again, and it’s been a pleasure to welcome people back into Adams Park for the first time in 2021.

“We’d like to thank everyone who’s been involved along the way and look forward to this final week of fixtures before the work commences on the pitch to provide the usual first-class quality of playing surface for the new season.”
