Thu Mar 30, 2017 08:39

I've been asked to look into a former Wanderers played from the 1920's, so thought I would share the information here.

Edward ‘Teddy’ Beeson – Wanderers player 1921 to 1926
Edward Beeson, better known as ‘Teddy’, played for Wanderers from the 1921/22 season until 1925/26, making 129 known First Team appearances during his time at Loakes Park.
He debuted for Wanderers in the Isthmian League game away to Nunhead on 22 October 1921, playing in defence in a 3-2 victory before a gate estimated at 3,000. A team mate of Beeson’s during his first run out in a Wycombe shirt was Frank Adams.

‘Teddy’ became a regular in the Wanderers side for the following five seasons – being virtually ever present from the start of the 1922/23 season until his final season in 1925/26.

His only goals for Wanderers came during his farewell season 1925/26, when he bagged 6 goals (all from the penalty spot). His scoring spell from the spot started when converted two penalties in the delayed 1924/25 Maidenhead Hospital Cup Final with Windsor & Eton, played at Maidenhead on 29th August 1925.

His final game for Wanderers was 1st May 1926 – a 4-4 home Isthmian League draw with St Albans City – a game where he also scored another penalty.
