WE are delighted to announce that Brandon Buckley - the grandson of the former Town manager Alan - has joined our youth team.
Even though Brandon is still only 15 years old, Town's youth and academy manager Andy McMillan, feels that the young midfielder should make the progression immediately.
Speaking to gtfc.co.uk, Andy said: “I've been very, very impressed with Brandon from day one. He's an Under 16 lad, still at school, but he's been coming in every day and training with the youth team. He's not looked out of place at all physically, but tactically and technically he's been very good.
“With the club going back to the Football League, which allows us to register our players, it was paramount that we got Brandon signed, because we think that he has a future.”
Brandon made his Youth team debut against Rotherham last week and is set to make his full debut v Doncaster Rovers at Cheapside on Saturday.
