Forest Green Rovers defender Aarran Racine has signed a new two-year contract with the National League side and been made club captain.

The 24-year-old finished the season as skipper as they lost the promotion final against Grimsby at Wembley.

The centre back is the Forest Green's longest-serving player, having joined the club almost four years ago.

"A personal goal is to get back into the league and play football, so it was quite an easy decision," he said.

Talking about the captaincy, Racine told BBC Radio Gloucestershire: "It's a first really, so it's going to be interesting - it's a massive honour."

He made 46 appearances this season, almost half the total games he has played for Rovers.
