Maxi beats deadline to bring in some quality players

Have your say

ON SATURDAY, Buxton entertain the much-improved North Ferriby United at the Silverlands, kick off 3pm, in an Evo-Stik League Premier Division fixture.

When the clubs met in September, the Bucks won 4-1, although the result was in doubt until late in the game.

Last Thursday Buxton’s new management team added two 19-year-old loan players from football league clubs to the squad.

Both are midfielders and made promising debuts at Nantwich. James Baxendale left Leeds United for Doncaster Rovers in the summer and has already appeared as a substitute in the Championship side, making a debut versus West Ham United.

Oliver Banks, who stands more than six feet tall, has been signed from Rotherham United and made a scoring debut for the League Two team when coming on as substitute versus Torquay United in the last match of the 2010/11 season.

Chairman Tony Tomlinson said: “Scott (Maxfield) and Chris (Dolby) did very well to bring in two quality players on the deadline day for football league loans and at a cost the club can afford. Wednesday’s injuries to Michael Towey and Martin Pembleton, plus Neil Stevens’ suspension had left our midfield department temporarily depleted.”

Both players will return to their parent clubs in early January.
