Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth has praised the family of the late Naz Bajwa following Wanderers’ 2-0 win over Gillingham.

Mr Bajwa, who was a lifelong Chairboys supporter, passed away on Sunday, October 3, 2021, after falling ill when watching his sons play football.

His death came just one day after Wanderers defeated Morecambe 4-3 in an extraordinary game at Adams Park.

He was remembered with a minute’s applause at half-time in the 2-0 victory against the side from Kent on October 9, with £21,000 being raised to support his family through a Just Giving page.

And speaking after the win over Gillingham on Saturday, Ainsworth said: “My thoughts are win, lose or draw, it’s insignificant compared to what that family is going through.

“I was so pleased to be able to go up to them [Naz' family] and give them a scarf that was close to him.

“They’ve got more strength than I have ever got, and the strength they are showing is amazing right now with the loss of a dad and a husband.

“There are too strong boys there and I am hoping they can take solace from that, as their dad would have loved that today.”
