Forest Green have re-signed defender Darren Jones and brought in forward Delano Sam-Yorke on one-year deals.

Sam-Yorke, 26, spent the second half of the season with Lincoln after joining on a free from Cambridge in January.

Jones, 31, will be arriving for his third spell at The New Lawn having made 45 appearances in League Two for hometown club Newport in 2014-15.

"When I left last time I said I'd like to come back, and so I have," Jones told BBC Radio Gloucestershire.

"I'm now looking forward to the challenge ahead of trying to get promoted.

"And why not? Fleetwood have done it. They were only a small club and have come up through the leagues, so why can't Forest Green?"
