‘This would be a perfect end to testimonial year’
LOYAL Wanderers veteran Matt Bloomfield believes a win at Wembley will be the perfect end to his testimonial year.
The 31-year-old (pictured) has been in the play-offs twice before with the Chairboys but has failed to reach the showpiece on both occasions.
His first disappointment was a 2-1 aggregate loss to Cheltenham in 2006, while Wycombe’s second attempt saw them defeated 2-1 on aggregate against Stockport County in 2008.
Bloomfield made it third time lucky this year though as the Blues knocked out Plymouth to book their date with destiny and the stalwart reckons a win at Wembley would fulfill a lifelong dream
He said: It’s one thing that I’ve never done in my career and it’s the one thing I’ve always wanted to do. It would be a sensational way to end the testimonial year.
“Winning at Wembley with Wycombe would mean a great deal. I’ve been here a long time and been through a lot of ups and downs with the club.
“I know everybody behind the scenes and on the terraces. I’m so lucky to have been able to play for a club that I love. I’ve really become part of it here, so to be able to get us promoted would mean so much to me.
“We came so close to getting relegated last year and it was horrible to spend that time at the club. I didn’t want to be part of the team that got relegated, so to get promoted this year would be amazing.”
Bloomfield has been at the club since 2003 after joining from Ipswich Town and has made more than 300 appearances
