1. 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 ground/car parking?

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 cannot comment. 

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 day out:

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.
