Adam Hinshelwood became the first Aldershot player to join formeer manager Gary Waddock at League One Wycombe Wanderers when he joined them on a free transfer.

Hinshelwood was signed by Waddock in the summer and given the captain’s armband at the start of the season. However, his oppurtunities have been limited due to injury and hasn’t been able to hold down a regular starting place since Kevin Dillon took over.

Dillon told the official site ‘Due to the strength that we have in the central defensive area I could not guarantee him a starting place.

‘Since I have been at the club he has been terrific. He was unfortunate to sustain an injury and lose his place because everybody who has played at the heart of the defence has been excellent.’

And Hinshelwood said ‘I leave the club with fond memories but this is a good opportunity for me at Wycombe Wanderers and in the next month or so we will be facing the likes of Norwich City, Leeds United and Charlton Athletic. It is a real challenge to try to help keep the club in League One but I am always up for a challenge.’

This move has freed up some money in the wage budget that should allow Dillon to strengthen in the transfer window and Hinshelwood, if he can stay fit, should get some regular games.

The only worry in all of this is the club’s failure to command a transfer fee for yet another contracted player and the exodus to Wycombe beginning. We’ll have to wait and see.
