Forest Green Rovers have signed former Newport County striker Aaron O'Connor on a one-year contract.

The 31-year-old scored 11 goals in 42 appearances for the League Two club in 2014-15 but was released last month.

"This club is going in the right direction, with a good manager and a good chairman," O'Connor told BBC Radio Gloucestershire.

"They weren't a million miles away from promotion last year. Hopefully I can help them get over that last hurdle."

The former Mansfield and Luton man had been with Newport County since 2012.
