Forest Green Rovers

Forest Green Rovers have signed striker Reece Connolly on loan from Farnborough until 25 April.

The 21-year-old former Aldershot player has scored 32 goals in 61 games for the Blue Square Bet South side.

Connolly comes in as injury cover for Reece Styche, who is out for rest of the season, and Magno Vieira, who is struggling for fitness.

"We've been looking at Reece for a while," Forest Green manager Dave Hockaday told the club website.external-link

"We've got a few injuries up front and Reece knows how to find the back of the net, so we thought it was a good time to get him in for the run-in and to take a look at him ahead of next season."
