Siblings make history as first trio

By David Watters

Three brothers have made history as the first trio of siblings to play together for EVO-STIK Northern Premier League Buxton.

Forward Djeny and defender Fabrice Bembo-Leta came off the bench to join brother Joel on the pitch and write themselves into the Premier Division club's history books during Saturday's 4-0 defeat at the hands of title-chasing Blyth Spartans at Silverlands.

Congolese-born, the trio are all aged 23 and have been on the books of Oldham Athletic after coming through the youth ranks at Stalybridge Celtic. Twins Djeny and Fabrice followed Joel to the Bucks after playing abroad and time out of the game, Djeny signing from the Latics only last week.

Central defender Joel arrived in the summer to join manager Martin McIntosh's squad after helping Marine escape the drop last season, pictured, after a spell at Colwyn Bay. Before leaving Celtic, he'd made 150 appearances for the Cheshire club and scored six goals.

Bucks fans are well used to family connections. Others include their only recorded father and son combination when Scott Lowe came off the bench to join his dad Stuart in the final game of the 2000-01 season.
