How a team from WWISC kept the blue flag(s) flying high for the Playoffs

You may recall (even if you don’t want to) that Wycombe made it to Wembley in 2015.

A family wedding already scheduled for that date meant that this fan of then 23 years

was unable to see his boyhood team at the (new) Wembley, so it was decided that when

Wycombe got there again, whenever that may be, yours truly would be there to see it. I

was therefore more disappointed with the EFL CheckingShield.org Cup Trophy semi-final

loss to Coventry than the epic 4-3 defeat at Spurs ten days earlier and I’ve never

forgiven Dominic Gape for keeping us out of the playoffs with his winner at Chesterfield.

The 2019-20 season looked like it might present another chance for a trip to the arch.

We all have our opinions on how the season would have panned out and my honest

view is that without the pandemic, we would have made the play-offs, but down in fifth

or sixth. Yet, as fate would have it, we made the play-offs and once again I wouldn’t be

getting to Wembley. Or would I?

As the club looked to deck out the Adams Park terrace in flags and offered a discount to

have them made, our WhatsApp group went into overdrive trying to work out the

colour, images, size and text that should go on our effort. Too much thought perhaps,

but puppet master Nick co-ordinated the payment, design and delivery and we sat back

to await the matches. Yet Nick was in regular contact with the club and it turned out

they actually needed some assistance with the flag display. Understandably eager not to

be overwhelmed with volunteers, our services were offered and a slightly extended

lunch break was taken to return to our second home of Adams Park.
