18:00 - The doors are open at Adams Park, with the bar open and food available. Come on down to hear what the club's management have to say

19:00- The first part of the evening sees Trust chairman and, as of tomorrow, new club chairman Trevor Stroud and General Manager Michael Davies take questions from the fans

19:10: Trevor Stroud starts the evening by thanking Andrew Howard for all his hard work as chairman.

19:20 Question: Is it viable to have a shop back in Wycombe town centre?

TS & MD: We are looking to have a larger presence in the town as seen in the away kit launch, but a shop would not be economically viable.

19:27: Topic - More advertising around the town:

TS & MD: Our fixture posters and cards are now in and we hope that they can be seen in shops and pubs around the town. If you would like to have our posters in your shop window please get in touch.

19:30: Topic - Big screen maintenance:

TS & MD: Watch this space. Meetings have taken place to look at the repair of the big screen to try and take it back to its former uses.

19:45: Keith Higgins of Wycombe Sound has thanked the club for all their support for the radio station, with both the club and the station looking forward to continuing to support one another in the season ahead.

TS&MD: The Club Charter will be respected and both sponsors will be consulted to ensure maximum exposure for both companies

20:20: Question: The size of the squad.

GA: With everyone fit we could get 11 v 11. The budget is a factor and there is a lot of competition for players. I made the decision to get a smaller squad of quality rather than a group of young players to make the numbers up.

28, 21, 24, 24 are the number of players used over the last four seasons and we have seen success with those numbers.

20:15: Andrew Howard has thanked all fans and staff during his time as chairman and is excited to begin his new role on the footballing side of the club, supporting Gareth and the players and helping the team push on.

20:00: Manager Gareth Ainsworth and new sporting director Andrew Howard will now face questions from the fans.
