Former Valiants: Ainsworth takes Wycombe to Wembley

Former Port Vale winger Gareth Ainsworth’s Wycombe Wanderers will play Southend United in the League Two play-off final at Wembley.

Wycombe defeated Plymouth Argyle 2-1 (5-3 on aggregate) to reach the final. It’s a remarkable turnaround in fortunes for the Chairboys who narrowly avoided going out of the Football League last season.

The play-off final will take place on the 23rd May at Wembley stadium.

Ainsworth is Vale’s record purchase at £500,000 and record sale – £2m to Wimbledon. Fittingly, his last game as a player was during Vale’s promotion celebrations at Adams Park in 2013.
