Why you were looking forward to going to
the ground (or not as the case may be):
I was looking forward to this game, as I
didn’t make the game at Adams Park they
season before, and had heard lots of good
things about not only the ground, but the
club in general.
2. How easy was your journey/finding the
Journey was fine, followed the High
Wycombe signs going along the M4, and then
the Adams Park signs once in Wycombe
itself. As for car parking, we managed to
find a space in a road that was off the
main road out of Wycombe. It was around a
10 minute walk to the ground.
3. What you did before the game
pub/chippy.... home fans friendly?
I met up with some mates, and we
managed to find a pub called “The Hour
Glass” It was a good, old fashioned,
proper pub, with very friendly bar staff.
There were a few home fans in there, and
they seemed friendly enough.
4. What you thought on seeing the
ground, first impressions of away end
then other sides of the ground?
When we first got to the ground, it
looked nice enough, and certainly looked
like a proper football league ground. The
away end did live up to all expectations,
and was indeed top notch. The view was
quality, and could see over the hills
ahead. It holds approximately 2,000 away
fans. Opposite to the away end is a small
terrace, which also holds around 2,000
fans. To the right of the away end is a
small, all seated stand which, looked like
it could hold around 1,000 fans. Finally,
to the left of the away end, is a large,
two tiered stand which really stands out
compared to the rest of the ground, but
not in a bad way.
5. Comment on the game itself,
atmosphere, stewards, pies, toilets etc.
The game was a proper relegation
“Six Pointer” as Wycombe were 2nd
from bottom and Exeter were 4th
from bottom, so a win for any team could
prove crucial. The atmosphere coming from
the away end was quality, especially as
our manager had said before the game that
he wanted the Exeter fans to try and make
every away game like a home game. The
Wycombe stewards were really good, and let
us stand for the full 90 minutes, they
even didn’t mind us bringing lots
of red balloons! The food was good
quality food, although a bit on the
pricey side. I didn’t use the toilets, so
The 1st half was
average, which led to a few moans from the
home fans. The 2nd half turned
out to be much better as this was when the
game got interesting. Wycombe scored two
goals in 6 minutes at the start of the 2nd
half, which suddenly woke the home fans
up, but was soon kept quiet again, after a
wonder strike from 25 yards from our young
centre midfielder, Liam Sercombe. In the
last minute of normal time Richard Logan
latched on to a through ball to slot the
ball past the Wycombe keeper to send the
travelling fans into raptures. Logan was
even booked and then later on
fined for his goal celebration.
6. Comment on getting away from the
ground after the game:
Getting away from the ground was
easy enough, as the club let the
pedestrians walk out before they open the
official club car park.
7. Summary of overall thoughts of the
Overall, it was a good away day,
especially after our “late, late show.”
Fully enjoyed the day as a whole, and will
be looking to go again if Exeter ever get
to go back.
