New Signings Details

Updated: Jul 1, 2023

Buxton have signed three new players, who were with team manager Craig Elliott at Boston United. Jordan Burrow (Left) is a centre-forward and Luke Shiels a central defender.

Striker Jordan Burrow, six feet one tall and a product of Chesterfield's youth system, has played in the EFL for Morecambe and Stevenage and is an England C international. Jordan was a York City player before joining Boston United and also had spells with Gateshead, FC Halifax Town and Lincoln City. Aged 30, he was born in Sheffield.

Experienced defender Luke Shiels (Right), 33 and from Sutton-in-Ashfield, was Boston's player of the year in season 2019/20 and more recently club captain. Previously, Luke was with Alfreton Town, Harrogate Town and Worksop Town. He played against Buxton twice last season.

Striker Jake Wright (Left) is the third player in a week to rejoin former boss Craig Elliott at Buxton after being part of his set-up when he was in charge at Boston United. Jake scored 15 goals at Boston last season and previously played at York City and Harrogate Town, having been a trainee with Sheffield United. From Sheffield, he is aged 26.

Eoin McKeown (Right), 24-year-old striker, has been added to the Buxton squad for the club's second season in the Vanarama National League North. Most recently with Tamworth in the Southern League Premier Division, where he scored a league hat-trick, Londoner Eoin, six feet three tall, had been with the Colchester United academy and made his first-team debut for them in the EFL Trophy more than five years ago. Prior to Tamworth, his clubs included Braintree Town in the Vanarama National League South.

Chesterfield-born and former Matlock Town and Belper Town defender Max Hunt has joined

Buxton after making 64 appearances for Somerset side Yeovil Town in the National League.

At six feet six tall, dominating centre-half Max is welcomed as the latest close-season

signing for the Bucks. Aged 24, he started out with Nottingham Forest's youth scheme and was at the Mansfield Town academy. His other EFL clubs have been Derby County and Carlisle United.

Experienced midfielder Curtis Weston has joined the Bucks, the latest addition by team

manager Craig Elliott as he strengthens his squad in readiness for the new term. Curtis helped AFC Fylde win promotion to the Vanarama National League last season, after making 147 appearances for Chesterfield in a four-year spell. When he replaced Millwall's Dennis Wise in the closing stages of the 2004 FA Cup Final against Manchester United he became the youngest-ever finalist, aged 17. He transferred to Swindon Town two years later, signed by Dennis Wise, then moved to Leeds United the following year, the third time that Dennis Wise had given him a contract. Other clubs have been Gillingham, Barnet, and Scunthorpe United on loan. London-born Curtis is 36 years old. He said: "I can't wait to get started for Buxton and feel I can settle in quickly. I'm hardworking and keen to impress. When I spoke to the manager about his plans I was pretty much sold on the club straightaway. I've had a chance to look around the Tarmac Silverlands facility and I'm really impressed. It has a really good feel about it."

As Buxton's squad continues to take shape, Morgan Bacon, Shaun Brisley (Alfreton), Warren Clarke, Lindon Meikle (Tamworth) and Jake Moult (Stafford Rangers) have left the club. Theo Richardson has signed for AFC Fylde for an undisclosed fee and last season's loanees have returned to their parent clubs.
