Wycombe Wanderers have confirmed that one of their players from their successful spell from the 1950s has died.

Arthur Burgess, who was from Stokenchurch, died this month aged 90, just three weeks after his ex-teammate, John Reardon passed away.

Burgess, who mainly played for the reserve side, was at the club for three seasons during the decade, making a handful of appearances for the first team.

He turned up regularly for many WWEPA (Wycombe Wanderers FC Ex-Players Association) events and never missed the golf day and dinner, which was organised by his former teammate Derrick Draffan who, himself, died in May this year.

An engineer by trade, he lived in Marlow with his late wife Beryl for most of his life.

Wycombe Wanderers said: “Our thoughts are with his daughter, son, and all other members of his family.”
