28-Year-Old striker Chris Maguire signed a two-year deal with the Shakers after turning down the offer of a new contract from Oxford United, as well as offers from other clubs.

Maguire’s career started with Aberdeen in July 2005, with whom he would go on to make 158 appearances, scoring 24 goals. He moved South of the border in June 2011, joining Championship side Derby County after a fee of £400,000 was paid for his services, but after making just seven appearances joined Portsmouth on loan in January 2012.

He linked up with Sheffield Wednesday at the end of the 11/12 season signing a three-year deal with the Owls. A loan move to Coventry City came a year later before he joined Rotherham United in July 2015. After a year in Yorkshire, he moved South again, joining Michael Appleton’s Oxford United, where he made over 70 appearances – scoring 24 goals - before rejecting a new deal at the Kassam Stadium at the end of last season.

In total, Chris has made 380 appearances, scoring 76 goals. Chris was a regular for the Scottish U21 side for many seasons and was finally awarded two international caps for Scotland in February 2011.
