The Bucks are pleased to announce the strengthening of Kevin Wilkin’s first-team squad with the addition of forward Reece Styche, who joins the club from Matlock Town.
Reece, who represents Gibraltar internationally, has established himself as a consistent goal-scorer at Steps 1-3 since breaking into the Hednesford Town line-up in the 2006-07 season, aged 17 years old.
Amongst the most notable spells of his career, Reece averaged a goal every three games between 2010-2014 for Forest Green Rovers, and as a result, he earned England C recognition.
Reece eventually moved on to Kidderminster Harriers and then Macclesfield Town; however, during spells with Tamworth, Darlington and Alfreton Town, Reece acquired a reputation as one of the most fearsome strikers at Step 2. He averaged a goal every two matches at each, making his services much sought-after.
A move to Hereford for the 2019-20 season wasn’t quite as productive on the goal front, and after a move to Bromsgrove Sporting, the season was ended prematurely by the Covid pandemic.
The early cessation of Step 3 football the following season meant a curtailment to Reece’s move to Buxton, and after a short stint at Hednesford Town, he joined Stourbridge.
19 goals in 53 appearances for the Glassboys followed, playing in partnership with Montel Gibson. The pair both scored to eliminate the Bucks from the 2021/22 FA Trophy, Reece scoring an injury-time winner at Amblecote in a 3-2 Bucks defeat.
Reece signed for Matlock during the summer of 2023 but has signed for the Bucks on a deal for the rest of the season but unforutunalty he will not eligible for today’s visit to Quron AFC in the Isuzu FA Trophy.
Reece also has three international goals to his name in 31 appearances for Gibraltar, scoring against Switzerland, Montenegro and Norway.
