Club Statement

Buxton FC First Team Manager Craig Elliott to Step Down

First Team Manager Craig Elliott has announced he will be leaving the club at the end of the season and has issued the following statement:


“After careful thought, I’ve decided at the end of the season I will leave Buxton FC. I have loved my time at the club and made some fantastic memories. However, thinking of my own future, I feel it is now the right time for me to take on a new challenge.


Making this decision now gives everyone clarity and the club the best opportunity to plan for next season. I would personally like to thank the supporters and all at the Club for their support throughout my time here and assure you that me, my staff, and players will be giving everything we can to ensure we finish the season as strongly as possible.”


Club Chairman David Hopkins said:


“On behalf of myself and the Board, we would like to thank Craig for all he has achieved during his time at the club.


Craig joined us at a difficult time in our first season in the Vanarama National League North, and not only steadied the ship, but led us up the League table, narrowly missing out on the playoffs on the final day of the season, after also winning the Derbyshire Cup for the first time in 11 years.


We very much look forward to a second successive Derbyshire Cup final under Craig, and wish him every success in his future career, he will leave the club with our very best wishes.
