2019/20 Opposition Guide: Wycombe Wanderers

Ahead of the 2019/20 Sky Bet League One campaign, bwfc.co.uk will profile each of Wanderers' opponents.

In our final article, we have Wycombe Wanderers...

Nickname: The Chairboys, The Blues

Founded: 1887

Stadium: Adams Park

Capacity: 9,448

2018/19 Finish: 17th in Sky Bet League One

2018/19 Top Scorer: Adebayo Akinfenwa, 8 goals in all competitions

Manager: Gareth Ainsworth

Born and bred in nearby Blackburn, Ainsworth started his playing career with his hometown club in their youth set-up but never made a senior appearance for the Ewood Park outfit.

Moving to Northwich Victoria in the early 1990s, the midfielder spent time with Preston and Cambridge United before returning to Deepdale in 1993 and making over 80 league appearances for North End before a switch to Lincoln City.

Stints with Port Vale, Wimbledon, Cardiff City and QPR followed ahead of a four-year spell with his current employers, with him making over a century of appearances for the Chairboys alongside becoming their manager in 2012.

He has remained in the position ever since, making him the second-longest serving manager in the top four tiers of English football, only beaten to summit by Morecambe's Jim Bentley.

Distance From The University Of Bolton Stadium: 194 miles
