Ex-Morton striker set for Clitheroe bow
11:20am Friday 5th October 2012 in Sport
CLITHEROE could hand a debut to new signing Mark Buchan in tomorrow’s Evo-Stik First Division North fixture at home to Goole Town.
Blues boss Paul Moore has brought in the 20-year striker from Witton Albion, where he helped the Cheshire side secure promotion to the Premier Division last season with 10 goals in nine starts.
Buchan previously played for Scottish Second Division side Greenock Morton and Moore is pleased to have secured his services.
“Mark is a quick and energetic forward who has a real eye for goal,” said the Clitheroe manager.
The Blues, who have won the inaugural First Division North fair play award for August and September, saw Tuesday’s match at Radcliffe postponed because of a waterlogged pitch. They are currently third in the table and face a Goole side who go into the game sitting second bottom.
