RETIRING GARY STILL BEHIND HIS CHAIRBOYS
GARY Doherty has backed Wycombe to continue their charge towards promotion, despite being forced to retire.
The 34-year-old former Tottenham man has been suffering with a knee injury since pre-season.
In all Doherty played 501 games for Luton, Spurs, Norwich, Charlton and Wycombe, and he also won 34 caps for the Republic of Ireland.
But he’s sure the Chairboys can carry on their great start by reaching League One.
“The gaffer has put together a really strong team and I would have loved to have been a part of it for the rest of the season,” said Doherty, who made 47 appearances for Wycombe after joining two years ago.
“Retiring is the hardest decision for any footballer to have to make.You always hope you’ll be able to retire in your own time when it is right for you, but injury has forced my hand and it’s one of those things you have to deal with.”
