MOVING away from Adams Park is no longer on the table for Wycombe Wanderers.
Plans by former owner Steve Hayes to move Blues, and tenants London Wasps, into a new 20,000 seater Booker stadium were thrown out by Wycombe District Council.
They were controversial and Wycombe Wanderers Trust has moved to reassure fans they will not resurface by insisting it wants to utilise their current stadium and facilities to boost finances and their community links and help the club break-even.
With the club losing around £1.5m a year, the Trust believe making Adams Park a community and business hub will help balance the books.
“Adams Park is a fantastic facility which is not used that many times in the day and there is an awful lot that can be done off-the-field and on match-days to improve the income,” said joint-chairman Don Woodward. “We are looking at how we can change the philosophy of the club.”
Trust chairman Trevor Stroud added: “I can't see any situation where we would want to re-ignite a move away from Adams Park. If we outgrow it we might consider it but that is a long way away.”
