Preparations for the new season are well underway, and Wanderers fans got the chance to see a Chairboys side in action for the first time in 2021 last Friday.

It was a team of development squad trialists who took a 1-1 draw from Southern League Premier Division club Chesham United, with a couple of players catching the eye.

There wasn’t too much quality on show at The Meadow, and you suspect a few of the trialists will be leaving Wycombe as quickly as they arrived.

However, some of the young Wanderers could be in with a chance of signing permanently with the development squad for the upcoming League One campaign.

The match took place on July 9 at the Meadow

The goalscorer, Ethan Dekel-Daks, has spent his youth career at Nottingham Forest and looks like a capable attacking midfielder who can go past his man with ease.

He was arguably Wycombe’s best player on the night and scored a lovely curled effort to level the game.

At only 19, Dekel-Daks could be a player that Sam Grace and the coaching staff look to develop into a first-teamer in the years to come.

Gabriel Rogers was also believed to have been in the eleven after leaving Yeovil Town.

The midfielder was also nominated for FA Cup Player of Round One after netting a last-gasp extra-time winner at Bromley.

Former Royal Grammar School pupil Jack Wakely has been training with the first team for a couple of weeks and is a tall centre-back capable of progressing the ball and playing a pass.

He spent around five years in the youth setup at Chelsea, with his only senior experience coming at Basingstoke Town.

Wakely ended the most recent season at Brighton & Hove Albion, where the 20-year-old made nine appearances for the Seagulls in Premier League 2.

18-year-old Lyall Booth was also in action last week and has plenty of pedigree at youth level after captaining Aberdeen U18s.

Around 500 people were in attendance on Friday night

He took the young Dons to a Hampden Park cup final last season.

Goalkeeper Tyla Dickinson is also suggested to be on trial with the Chairboys and left QPR earlier in the summer.

Eitel Goueth was part of the successful Slough Town-affiliated Academy23 during the 2020/21 campaign, but despite playing for the Chairboys against Chesham, it’s believed that he has been let go.

That’s part and parcel of the pre-season process for the development squad, with each game seeing the batch of trialists eventually whittled down to just a select few to start the season.

After biding their time in the early stages, Wycombe are really getting going in the market now with a constant stream of both first-team and development squad trialists appearing at the training ground and in matches.

The team who take to the field in the next ‘B team’ fixture will likely be significantly different to the one that drew with Chesham, but there looks to be some talent there that can be moulded into future Wanderers stars.
