MORECAMBE boss Jim Bentley has added to his squad with full back Adam Buxton joining the club.

The 27-year-old has become the latest player to join the Shrimps this summer after agreeing an initial one year deal.

Buxton joins after a two-and-a-half year spell with Tranmere where he played more than 40 games for Micky Mellon’s side.

After agreeing the deal he said: “I’m looking forward to getting going. I know a lot of the lads already and played with Cole Stockton and Ritchie Sutton at Tranmere recently too so that will be good.

“I’ve had a couple of good years with Tranmere with three playoff finals and two back to back promotions and it will be great to try and carry on that success this year.

“I was meant to sign for Morecambe on loan from Wigan a few years ago but the club was under an embargo then and I went to Burton instead so it’s good to finally get here.’'

Boss Bentley said: ‘We’ve nearly signed Adam a couple of times since I have been manager.

“After Zak Mills’s departure it was important that we got quality into the squad and I feel we’ve done that with Adam.

“His main position is right back but he can cover anywhere in defence.

“He’s well respected by staff, fans and teammates at Tranmere and has played a big part in their back to back promotions.

“He’s experienced at the level, he’s a good footballer and a solid defender and we wish him well for the season ahead.''
