Dedicated supporter is fan of the month
WYCOMBE Wanderers fan Lisa Bowker is the Sky Bet League 2 Fan of the Month for January.
Lisa’s love for the Chairboys has seen her attend 171 consecutive Wycombe games in the Sky Bet Football League with the last league game she missed a goalless draw on April 22, 2011.
Lisa has also agreed to jump out of a plane to raise money for the club on April 12.
She said: “I have always wanted to do a sky dive and thought it would be a good way to raise money for the club.
“Myself and three others raised £2,715 for the club recently when we climbed Ben Nevis, and I am hoping for a similar total. I am honoured to be nominated for the Sky Bet Fan of the Month Award – it is a great feeling!”
Lisa’s efforts were saluted by another piece of the furniture at Adams Park, midfielder Matt Bloomfield, who celebrates his testimonial this season.
‘Blooms’ said: “Lisa follows the team home and away, whatever the weather, and it means a lot to the players. Her efforts as a volunteer, and

The voting panel is Sky Sports TV presenter Jim White, Sky Bet sponsorship manager David Tweed and Football League commercial development manager Oliver Frankl.
If Lisa wins the £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund, an initiative launched by the broacaster last summer, for Wycombe, Lisa will buy loanee Alfie Mawson from Brentford.
