In a statement on the Chairboys website, Wycombe Wanderers Development Manager Sam Grace commented: “Both Jack and Jaiden [Bartolo – joining from Wealdstone] acquitted themselves extremely well during their time here and earned the opportunity to join us on a permanent basis.

“Our development squad programme has gone from strength to strength, with one player having just achieved promotion to the Premier League, another is doing extremely well in the Championship, and we saw great signs from the youngsters who were given first-team opportunities both here at Wycombe and out on loan last season.

“We are looking to continually build on the progress we’ve made in youth development and we’re delighted that two more youngsters with excellent potential in Jack and Jaiden will be joining us for the new season.”
