Coasters midfielder Tom Walker has joined National League North side Buxton FC on a four-month loan deal until January 2024.

Tom has featured for the Coasters on three occasions this season and will link up with the Derbyshire side ahead of their FA Cup Second Qualifying Round against Macclesfield Town.

The 27-year-old initially joined the Coasters in 2020 from Salford City before departing for Harrogate Town that summer. Loan spells at Notts County and Stockport County led to Walker signing for the Hatters, where Fylde later pounced to secure his signature once again, this time on loan. 

It was the summer of 2022 when the Coasters made the move permanent, once again, with Walker now aiming for regular game time at the Tarmac Silverlands Stadium. 

On Tom’s loan move, Director of Football Chris Beech said: “Tom finds himself outside Adam’s attacking options at present.

“Going to Buxton on loan until January gives him a great opportunity to play, whilst freeing up finance to strengthen the squad in other areas of the pitch.

“We have placed a seven-day call back in the deal, which can be activated after 28 days if required. We wish Tom all the best in this period.”

All the best, Walks!
