Doing more for our Wanderers

WITH Wycombe Wanderers FC aiming to accumulate a grand £3 million over the coming year through the recently launched "Friends of Wycombe Wanderers" Initiative, I feel it's time for all true supporters to "roll up their sleeves" instead of moaning about the club like a Mr Rolfe insinuating at least some of present players were rubbish.

I appreciate he pays money to watch the team but perhaps if he and the other moaners put a little effort on the side to increase finances they would feel more contented.

If he bothers to read match programmes or the club's Super Cashline results in the BFP weekly always stating agents are required.

If only a third of our supporters sold, say, 50 lottery tickets to friends, neighbours, workmates and relatives, we could buy at least three good players every season, and before readers write in and say what's my contribution let me tell you?

I've worked for the club part and full-time for 24 years, canvassed every town in Bucks plus quite large parts of Berks, Oxfordshire and Herts, called on over 600,000 households, walked 17,000 miles and travelled the equivalent of five times around the world.

In doing so my efforts have brought in over £1 million to the club's coffers, but to me just as important, I've also distributed at least 15,000 items promoting the club including 4,000 posters at no cost to the club and still going strong aged 77.

So if you are "serious about success," our new slogan, just give up a few hours a week as a canvasser or agent for our popular lotteries.

Or if you're afraid a pretty blonde might answer the door and seduce you, or of course for the ladies a "gladiator," just volunteer to deliver literature or posters and keep fit in the process.
