Buckinghamshire will be cheering on Wycombe Wanderers tonight.

The Chairboys are in the League One final against Oxford United tonight, playing for a place in the Championship.

They are getting a lot of support from our Council, with plans to light up their offices in the town tonight.

The Buckinghamshire Council offices in Queen Victoria Road were illuminated in blue light over the weekend and a giant football is being projected onto them tonight, thanks to Marlow based firm, Lumatech Ltd.

Leader of the Council, Martin Tett said that his fingers were firmly crossed that football would be coming home on Monday evening.

"Come on the Wanderers.

"We'll all be nervous, but we know you can do it."

Cabinet Member for Sports and Leisure Clive Harriss added:

"This is the big one and we're right behind the boys. Despite the Covid restrictions, it will be a magnificent occasion for the town and all the supporters.

"Fingers crossed that it's Championship football next season for our wonderful local club."

Chris Clarke from Lumatech, who arranged the illumination said:

"As a company, we were delighted to lend our support and add to the sense of occasion.

"You don't often see a giant football on the council offices but when you do, you know its important! Good luck to the Wanderers." 

The match, at Wembley Stadium, kicks off at 7.30pm.
