STRIKER JASON GILCHRIST SIGNS FOR THE BUCKS


Former Manchester City and Burnley youth Jason Gilchrist has joined Buxton FC from Nationwide North's York City. Proven goalscorer Jason, 26, made an appearance for England C three years ago and has played in the Football League for Accrington Stanley.

Bucks' team manager Steve Cunningham said: "It is great to have Gilly join us here at the Tarmac Silverlands. We've watched and admired him for quite some time and he'll give us something extra at the top of the pitch. He's been our number one target and thanks go to the chairman and board for their support in making the move happen."

David Brindley, director, added: "Jason knows his way around at this level and above. He's a natural goalscoring centre-forward. Thank you to York City for their co-operation and to Jason for wanting to be part of our journey."

Jason made his debut from the bench in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Ashton United.
