Former Tranmere promotion winner joins Bootle

Adam Buxton, formerly of Tranmere Rovers, has moved to the Berry Street Garage Stadium to join Bootle FC. 

Known as ‘Bucko’ to most, the former Rovers right back is known for his versatility, and with Football League experience, he’ll join an already talented squad at Bootle, who’ll aim for promotion under former FA Vase winner David McNabb. 

Buxton signed for Tranmere in 2017 under Micky Mellon after leaving Portsmouth and having spells at Wigan, Burton and Accrington, and he formed part of the backbone which took Tranmere Rovers back to the Football League. 

He featured more sporadically in their first season back in League Two, where Rovers chalked up back-to-back promotions, and Buxton proved to be a huge part in the goal leading up to Tranmere’s ascent to League One, as he teed off Jake Caprice who crossed for Connor Jennings to nod home. 

After spells at Morecambe, York City and Prestatyn Town, Buxton linked up with McNabb for the first time at Warrington Rylands, recently crowned FA Vase Champions, and he was a key part of the Blues’ promotion to the Northern Premier League for the first time. 

After leaving Gorsey Lane at the start of the season, he put pen to paper and linked up with McNabb again at Bootle, who he’ll help achieve the Bucks’ goals of promotion.
