Fans stunned as Buxton make eyecatching signing

Fans have been left stunned as Buxton make an eyecatching signing, which could massively help them big time come next season.

The  non league club finished a disappointing 18th in the Northern Premier League Premier Division, picking up 35 points from 32 games.

Their season was made null and void, with no teams getting promoted to the National League North and no teams getting relegated.

As the team announced their incomings and outcomings on Sunday afternoon, current Gibraltar international striker Reece Styche was announced as one of those to have signed a deal for the coming season.

Buxton said in a series of tweets: “Before we unveil our new signings, a big thank you to three players leaving with our very best wishes Liam Hardy (Grantham), Callum Chippendale (Matlock) and Alex Brown who will be playing in the Conference National next season with Kings Lynn. Good luck at your new clubs lads!

“Styche signs on! Current Gibraltar International striker Reece Styche pens deal for the coming season.

“Shenton stays on! G.K Grant Shenton re-signs following his impressive debut season with The Bucks”.

You can hear what new signing Styche had to say after he was interviewed. Have a listen by clicking on play below…

Manager Gary Hayward said: “Last season we only had one striker and we needed a couple more attackers,” he said. “Callum is a direct fast winger and Styche is a prolific goalscorer in Conference North.

“He is very strong and powerful, he holds the ball up as well as getting the goals. We struggled last season when balls got chucked in the box, this season we will have a bit more firepower when aerial challenges come.”

And the ambitious Bucks are set to announce further signings, with Conference North quality players the target.

“I have kept the majority of the squad from our good run last season,” added Hayward.

“We are looking at a few more players. Every player will be Conference North standard.

“I go out and pick my players on what I need and work out how I do that.

“There will be new signings coming, we are going for it now.

“I have been working for the last 16 weeks, being on the phone constantly working on player deals.

“We are going to be competitive and that is all we can ask for. There are a lot of other good sides in the league who will be having a go, we are not going to win every game – it is about being competitive again.

“Let’s go and have a go. If we are up there at Christmas time we will strengthen further.”
