Two decisive goals within 5 minutes in the last quarter-hour eliminated Buxton from the 'Trophy' in east Lancs. on Saturday. There was little to choose between the teams until that late Colne surge as any of all 3 results seemed possible. Indeed it was 'the Bucks' who looked the more likely to snatch victory as twice within 3 minutes the home side had vital slices of luck to keep level....Full Report HERE
Midfielder Mark Howarth made his Buxton debut at Colne at the start of a month's loan from Salford City. Fellow Salford loanee Yianni Nicolaou was an unused substitute. Two players departed the club this week after contrasting stints with the Bucks. Forward Brad Grayson's loan at Stafford Rangers was made a permanent transfer this week with the Bucks receiving a substantial fee. Brad has had two spells at the Silverlands scoring 43 goals in 77 (37) appearances. Centre-half Zac Corbett only made one appearance for the Bucks, in last Tuesday's defeat to Belper Town, but has decided to retire from the game after feeling the affects of the match on a long-standing injury. Both players depart with our best wishes.
On Tuesday the Bucks get to finally play the outstanding Integro Cup match at home to Ilkeston Town. The match kicks off at 7-45 pm at the Tarmac Silverlands Stadium.
