He was manager of League Two side Grimsby Town until his dismissal in September 2008. Buckley was formerly a professional footballer, most notably as a striker for Walsall F.C.

Buckley is one of only 14 managers to have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a league club, but the only one of the 14 never to have managed a team in the Premiership or its predecessor, the First Division.

His younger brother Steve played over 300 games as a full-back for Derby County, and well over 100 for Luton Town. His son Adam played in midfield for Grimsby Town and Lincoln City, and his other son Simon also had a brief stint with Grimsby.
