WY­COMBE Wan­der­ers de­fender Aaron Pierre will be ful­fill­ing a life­long am­bi­tion when he steps out onto the Wem­b­ley turf on Satur­day, writes Ryan O’Dono­van.

The 22-year-old (pic­tured) will be end­ing his first full sea­son in se­nior foot­ball with an n ap­pear­ance at the na­tional sta­dium in n the League Two play- off fi­nal against t Southend.

Af­ter be­ing g em­broiled in a rel­e­ga­tion battle with h the club while on loanl only 12 months ago, this cam­paign has been the stuff of dreams for both Wy­combe and Pierre.

He said: “I can’t wait to play at Wem­b­ley, I hon­estly can’t wait.

“Who wouldn’t want to play at Wem­b­ley?

“I “It’s’ ev­ery kid’ kid’s d dream to one day be play­ing there be­cause that’s the high­est level in terms of sta­di­ums you can play at.

“That’s the big stage where you want to be in life, so the fact that we have got the op­por­tu­nity to do so is re­mark­able and I be be­lieve that no one will take this for gran granted.

“I “I’m elated at the fact that we got the cha chance to get to We Wem­b­ley. We were ver very un­for­tu­nate to mis miss out on au­to­matic pro pro­mo­tion, but we des de­serve to be in this fin fi­nal.”

Pierre added the fac fact that Wy­combe ha have a small squad ha has worked in the Ch Chair­boys’ favour th this sea­son.

“Ev­ery­one fights fo for each other be be­cause we have a sm small squad – the small­estll in the en­tire league,” he said.

“The fact that we work hard for each other and the fact that we’re very pas­sion­ate about what we do and we all have the same am­bi­tion means that it worked out on the pitch for us.”
