Wycombe Wanderers Rosette
Are you celebrating The Chairboy’s recent promotion and remembering past glories?
A fabric rosette, celebrating Wycombe Wanderers making it to the F.A. Cup semi-final match on 8th April 2001 against Liverpool. The final score was 2 – 0 to Liverpool, with no goals having been scored until 2 minutes before the match ended.
Wycombe Wanderers were nicknamed ‘The Chairboys’ since their early days in the 1880s, as many of their early players were furniture makers. Since the 1950s the Chairboys have had moments of glory, including making it to the FA cup semi-final in 2001. Now, with the decline of furniture making in the District, many young supporters find that they need to have the nickname explained.
