Craig Elliott has been appointed team manager of Buxton FC. "We are delighted that Craig has accepted the offer and look forward to working with him," said club chairman David Hopkins.

Best known as manager at National League North side Boston United, Craig took them from relegation candidates to promotion challengers during his four-year stay. Prior to managing Boston he guided Yorkshire side Shaw Lane up through football's league pyramid to a place in the Northern Premier League. For the last three months he has been in charge at Matlock Town.

"Craig has all the experience and an abundance of enthusiasm to consolidate our position in the National League North, He shares our considerable ambitions," David Hopkins said.

Craig is going to rely on the up-to-the minute views of caretaker managers Josh Granite and Sean Newton ahead of Tuesday's league clash at Leamington. The pair have led the Bucks to victories in the two games since Jamie Vermiglio resigned for personal reasons.

"I know several of the team and I'll get to know the rest of what looks like an excellent squad very quickly, leaning a bit on Josh and Sean along the way. I can't wait to get started."
