Experienced midfielder Ben Milnes has penned a deal for the Lambs from NPL Champions Buxton where he was a key player in their championship campaign. Ben started out at Leicester City before moving on to Boston United (3 years), Corby Town (3 years) and Kettering (3 years) before moving to Buxton at the start of last season. He had an opportunity to stay at Buxton, but he was really impressed with conversations he had with Andy Peaks and about the ambitions he has for the club.
The boss was clearly pleased to bring him in to strengthen the midfield following the departure of Ryan Beswick. “I know quite a lot about Ben. “He played against me when he was at Corby and Kettering. “He has good experience and is a good character and he will bring a lot of quality on the ball. “He has some characteristics that I think we have lost with Bez going. “He will hold things together and will link up well with Gift. “He obviously won the league with Buxton last season and his record speaks for itself - he is still young enough and hungry enough and I am delighted to get him in."
We will have an exclusive interview with Ben in our next newsletter
Welcome to the club Ben!
