The 36-year-old joined the Coasters in August 2020 after ending a 15-year career with League One side Fleetwood Town to become one of Graham Alexander`s first new signings as manager of then-National League newcomers Salford City in May 2018.

 

He re-united with Alexander, who he played under at Highbury.

 

He joined Fleetwood in 2003 and made 498 appearances for the Cod Army, playing a key role in the club’s rise up the divisions from North West Counties League Division One to League One.

 

He scored 51 goals in his time at the club and was awarded a Guinness World Record for becoming the only player to play in seven different divisions for one club, following the club’s promotion to League One in 2014.

 

He played 59 times for Salford, scoring 2 goals, and helped them to win promotion to the Football League.

 

He was called up for Montserrat in October 2019 and made his debut against El Salvador.

 

He scored his first goal in a 1–0 victory against St Lucia to ensure Montserrat progress to 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup qualification and has four caps to date.

 

Bucks boss Gavin Cowan told https://www.telfordunited.com: “It’s a huge signing for this football club that I feel shows ambition and desire to push us to be as high as possible.

 

“We can’t take all the credit on this one, Nathan’s brought into the vision having had many offers and that’s testament to what we have created over the last three years”.
