You’d think a potential 0-0 between Barnsley and Wycombe Wanderers, midweek in November, would be a fairly forgettable affair but the punters present eventually got their money’s worth thanks to the heroics of Wanderers keeper Maksymilian Stryjek.

Congratulations are in order to FSA members the Official Accrington Stanley Supporters Trust (OASST) who have been awarded a King’s Award for Voluntary Service – the highest award a local voluntary group can receive in the UK and equivalent to an MBE.
