Buxton manager John Reed has today signed former Chester City striker Steve Brodie on a free transfer from non-league Cheshire side, Witton Albion.

Brodie started his career at Sunderland, making 15 appearances for the North East club. He then played over 200 games for Scarborough. His other clubs have included Doncaster Rovers, Swansea City and Chester City. He also joins the Bucks on a one year deal.

Speaking in the Buxton Advertiser, Buxton Manager John Reed said: ‘He’s obviously got great credentials.

‘Last year he played for Witton Albion and played when they beat us two nil and three nil but missed the play off semi final. He can play centre midfield, left midfield or can play up front as well.

‘He is a really good player and there is flexibility about him and where he can play. I really do like him. He played for me at Stalybridge and he will be a great addition to us.

‘He is 34 years old and is a fitness instructor so he is in the gym all day. From a fitness point of view, even though he is 34, he is at the top of the tree.

‘When I spoke to him initially he said he was going to stay at Witton but then last week he saw we signed Mark Hume and thought we looked like we’re putting a nice team together.’
