Return of the Macca

The Bucks have secured the return to the club of midfielder James McQuilkin, who has agreed terms for the 2023/24 season.

‘Macca’ will become a Buck for the third time in his career; he spent a brief time at the club in the 2015/16 season, but returned for a lengthier spell when Gavin Cowan signed him for his first season as manager.

James spent two seasons with the Bucks before moving on, eventually joining Hereford and helping them to reach the 2021 FA Trophy final.

He subsequently joined Stourbridge, helping them to knock the Bucks out of the FA Trophy, and spent last season at Hednesford Town.

James has extensive experience in the game, having started his career at West Bromwich Albion; he has played for Tescoma Zlin in the Czech Republic and counts Walsall, Kidderminster Harriers and Torquay United among his other clubs.

Asked about his signing, manager Kevin Wilkin said “James has come in and worked hard in pre-season; he’s been very focused and has shown good fitness levels, but on top of that he’s technically a good footballer who can take care of the ball. He’s obviously had a spell here before, but if we can get a tune out of him and he can show us what he’s all about, with his experience, then he’ll add something extra to the group.”

Welcome back to the New Buck’s Head, Macca!
