WYCOMBE Wanderers striker Scott Rendell and his partner Sam are in mourning after their four-week-old baby died on Christmas Eve.

Alfie, who was born four weeks prematurely, was taken back into hospital last Wednesday and died two days later.

Wanderers manager Gary Waddock said: "It is absolutely tragic. No words can describe it."

Waddock had to break the news to his players on Christmas Eve and said many of them were in tears.

The cause of death is not known at this stage.
