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

Avril Hus­band/Griffiths Pho­tog­ra­phers her fundrais­ing don’t go un­no­ticed, so it’s great she’s been recog­nised as the Sky Bet League 2 Fan of the Month.”

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.
