It looks like Waddock for Wycombe

Following much speculation over the past few days regarding the identity of Wycombe Wanderers next manager, most media sources are now reporting that subject to compensation being agreed, it will be Aldershot's Gary Waddock who replaces Peter Taylor at Adams Park.


Waddock has enjoyed considerable success since taking over at Aldershot Town in May 2007.

In his first season in charge, he led the newly formed Shots into the Football League after winning the Conference title with a record 101 points.

The same season they won the Conference League Cup (Setanta Shield) and made it through to the semi-finals of the FA Trophy.

Last season the Shots consolidated their place in League Two, finishing 15th, and this season they currently occupy 6th place only 4 points behind leaders Bournemouth.

Prior to taking the Aldershot job, Waddock had at various times been Coach, Assistant Manager, Caretaker Manager and Manager at Queens Park Rangers.


His record as a manager is as follows:

Aldershot:
Played......125
Won...........60
Lost...........35
Drawn.......30
Win %.......48%

QPR
Played......23
Won...........4
Lost..........11
Drawn........8
Win %.......17%


In his playing career, midfielder Waddock made over 200 appearances for QPR and over 150 for Luton Town with spells at Charleroi, Millwall, Swindon Town and Bristol Rovers sandwiched in between.
