BUXTON FC’S all-time leading scorer Mark Reed has rejoined the club for a small fee.

The popular striker moved to Chester FC at the start of this season because of the travelling distance to Buxton from his home on the Wirral.

However, he has now been resigned by the Bucks for a nominal fee after only appearing very briefly for Chester.

The club are still waiting to see whether he will be available for the FA Cup 1st Qualifying round game at Louth Town tomorrow.

Buxton boss John Reed said: “We’re absolutely over the moon. I’d like to thank the board for putting up the money to bring Mark back. He is like a son to Buxton.

“The fans have been put through a lot in the early parts of the season and hopefully this will go a long to easing that.

“Hopefully we’ll get back to winning ways tomorrow with a couple of goals from Mark Reed.

“I’d like to thank Chester because they have been extremely helpful, especially the manager Neil Young. They’ve been very very good and helped us push this through so I’d really like to thank them for that.”

And manager John Reed is also still on the lookout for further additions to his squad. “Next week I’m hoping to bring a defender in and possibly a midfielder as well,” he said.
