‘To the Championship’ – These Wycombe fans react to the latest club development

Wycombe Wanderers legacy members have voted in favour of the acquisition of the club by American invester Rob Couhig, as revealed by their chairman Trevor Stroud on Twitter.

Couhig, who had been interested in Yeovil before their relegation from the Football League, has invested a small sum of money already and worked with the current administration as a ‘test run’ to a larger investment. As a supporter-owned club, his investment had to be voted in by legacy members, with a 75% threshold needed to allow him to take over.

That’s now been reached, signalling a new era for Gareth Ainsworth’s side. Wycombe have punched above their weight for a while now and have climbed to second in the League One table on a significantly smaller budget than that of their rivals. They’ve kept faith with Ainsworth through some tough times and have been rewarded on the field.

Couhig will now come on board and offer some serious investment, with the aim of taking the Buckinghamshire side to the Championship and maybe even beyond. Trevor Stroud is an immensely popular figure at the club and he couldn’t hide his delight in the reveal video.

It’s been identified as a watershed moment in Wycombe’s history and has been widely applauded on social media.
