A6 'Derby' Delight For Bucks

Tom Elliott With Two Assists V Matlock

Buxton's revival under the leadership of recently-appointed manager, Gary Hayward, gathered pace in a pulsating 'derby' at Causeway Lane on Boxing Day. Despite conceding twice in the opening 5 minutes, 'the Bucks' ,unchanged from the 5-0 thrashing of Scarborough, battled back to score 4 times without reply,3 of the goals coming in the 2nd half.

In form Matlock, demolished 6-0 in the Easter Monday, last meeting of the clubs, made a dream start as visiting 'keeper, Grant Shenton, possibly fouled, lost his grip on a lofted ball close to goal and ex-Buxton striker, Luke Hinsley, touched in from only a yard. Two minutes later it was 2-0 as new signing, Sam Scrivens, produced an accurate pull-back from the left for Tomas Poole to net with a deflected 10-yard drive. Full Report HERE
