He played 17 times and scored once for Gretna before they fell into financial troubles and went bust, The Frenchman was made redundant, after a trial with Hearts.

He seemed to impress Newell, being a left footed winger and striker he seemed to be what Town were looking for at the time. Played at a higher level, perhaps he was going to be one of Town's saviours so Newell handed him a contract until the end of the 08/09 season, along with another trialist Jean Louis Akpa Akpro, who struggled to speak any English.

However by February after he had only made a few appearances for the reserves, and was never on the bench, Newell gave Buscher a drilling live on BBC Radio Humberside's coverage of Towns fans' forum, Saying the Frenchman needed a kick up the backside and he needed to pull his finger out.

Buscher failed to make any impact with town and was released in May 2009.

In the end it seemed Mickael was more than likely used to help Akpro with his language skills...
