"The Bucks have experienced amazing league and cup success recently and now everyone is striving for more. I am looking forward to being part of that. Leaving Chorley wasn't easy but it's all about Buxton's future now. We're starting to get ready for pre-season and the great challenges that lie ahead."

A former Chorley player and in charge for four years, Vermiglio, 39, achieved one promotion, two play-offs and a club record FA Cup fourth round appearance.

He also set up a youth academy. Chorley finished sixth in the 2021/22 National League North, losing to York City in the play-offs.
