Biographical Text

After working his way up through the Portsmouth youth ranks, Buxton made his first team debut at the beginning of the 2001/02 season, aged 17, in a 1-0 win at Stockport County.

He was loaned out to Exeter City in October 2002, playing in what was a very poor team that ultimately crashed out of the Football League.

His debut was against Darlington at St James’ Park that ended in a 4-0 defeat. Although he was to feature in the next three games, Buxton was then returned to Portsmouth.

He was off on loan again in January 2003 to AFC Bournemouth and had a second loan spell with them in October 2003.

Unable to gain regular first team football at Fratton Park, he finally left Portsmouth for Stoke City in January 2005.

In October 2008 he moved to Sheffield Wednesday on loan, the move becoming a permanent one three months later.
2012–13, Buxton was voted player of the year by the Sheffield Wednesday supporters. This was following a consistency across over 40 games in a regularly changed Wednesday defensive unit. Buxton was released by Wednesday at the end of the 2014–15 season.

In June 2015 Buxton signed for Rotherham United on a one-year contract.

In August 2016 it was confirmed that Buxton had agreed a one-year contract to join Bolton Wanderers.
