Wonderful Wycombe Down U23s To Finish Trophy Campaign In Style

A superb performance from Gareth Ainsworth’s Wycombe Wanderers was enough to condemn Terry Westley’s young Hammers to defeat in the final Checkatrade Trophy Southern Group C clash at Adams Park last night. The hosts first took the lead through Will De Havilland after 31 minutes, the visitors having squandered some superb opportunities before that, none more so than when Skipper Moses Makasi fired over from close-range. But, The Chairboys took their chances at the pivotal times in the clash as Sido Jombati…
