The team report from the May 1959 Wycombiensian.

Played 7, Won 2, Lost 4, Drawn 1, Points for 51, against 99.

The team, which seemed promising at the start, did not do as well as expected. There was a tendency to rely too much on individuals and no one settled down in the key position of scrum-half.The backs were potentially good, but they must learn to pass correctly and to tackle with determination. The forwards were too often playing as individuals, although they showed, in the drawn game against Langley G.S., how well they could play if they were/together. Packman played consistently well and was an admirable captain.

The following played : Packman (Capt.), Horley, Lane, Solomon, Dorkings, Marshall, Moores, Ward, T. S., Davies, D. M., Harris, Williams, Sifton, Brain, Blythen, Smyth, G. M., Ham, Clark, P. R. G., Austin, R. J., Ferguson, D.R.
