Newcomers are here to stay!!!

Buchtmann Main

Christopher is another newcomer who joined our team this year. He was born in Minden on 25/04/1992 and started playing football for TSV Gross Berkel but pretty soon he tried his luck to Hannover 96 until the age of 13.


His next stop was Borussia Dortmund for two and a half years and after a short break in his home town club Blau-Weiss Schwalbe Tundern he moved to England on 2008 to join Liverpool. Things started pretty rough in Liverpool for Christopher due to some injury problems but soon enough he found his place on the team as a left defender although he had previously been used as a midfielder. After a good season, Liverpool offered him his first professional contract in April 2009 but he only managed to play for the reserved team and make a quick stop at Fulham.

Buchtmann Wide

In the summer of 2010 he moved back to Germany to sign a three-year contract with First FC Koln. Unfortunately, Stanislawski putted him on the second team and this summer Christopher joined St. Pauli for one year (with the option of one more), after only two appearances with FC Koln.
Christopher is counting 10 appearances in the second league so far and although he never found his way to the nets yet, two of his assists turned into a goal by his co-players. Let’s hope that everything will run smooth for him and that he will manage to renew his contract.

Best of luck for Christopher
