Barnett makes move to Buxton

Jordan Barnett has linked up again with former Matlock manager Craig Elliott at National League North Buxton for an undisclosed fee.

Barnett (23) joined the Gladiators in the summer having played 37 times in the National League for Yeovil Town last season. He had earlier played 18 Football League games for Oldham Athletic and also had a spell in the National League with Notts County.

Deployed both as a left sided midfielder or attacking wing back, Barnett scored five goals for the Gladiators and was popular among the Matlock support but on the flip side he is currently serving his second suspension after picking up twelve yellow cards, two of them equating to a red card which is limiting his availability for selection.

Matlock boss Martin Carruthers says he did not want to stand in the way of a player wanting to feature in a higher division.

“His time with me was short, he got off to a great start with that early goal against Belper in my first game. He worked hard and we wish him good luck and we hope he does well at Buxton.”
