The 29-year-old midfielder has been snapped up from National League North rivals Kidderminster Harriers, who had offered him fresh terms.

He had a brief spell with the Bucks in 2015 and has also played for Hereford United, Walsall and Torquay United.

“James is a player who is highly regarded in this league, having been a star performer at Kidderminster – making the team of the year last year,” said Cowan.

“He is a real coup for the football club and epitomises how I want us to play next season – high energy, quality in possession, intelligence and a desire to achieve.

“His availability came as somewhat of a surprise, but we were able to act quickly to get him signed and over the line.”

McQuilkin made 40 appearances for Harriers last season, scoring four goals.
