Striker joins on permanent transfer

January 31st 2024
FGR Media

We are excited to announce the return of striker Christian Doidge on a permanent transfer from Scottish Premiership side Hibernian. 

Doidge becomes our sixth addition of the January transfer window. 

The Welshman joined Hibernian in the summer of 2019 from Forest Green, where he went on to make 148 appearances, in which he scored 41 times for the Scottish side. 

The 31-year-old re-joins Rovers with fond memories of his first stint in Nailsworth, where he became the club’s all-time record scorer with 66 goals in 122 appearances. 


The striker created ever lasting memories for Rovers fans in his first spell with the club, with a play-off final goal at Wembley, scoring our first ever EFL goal, and a memorable strike away at local rivals Cheltenham Town which helped keep the club in League Two in our maiden Football League campaign. Now, Doidge is back to make more memories.

After rejoining the club, he said: “I’m delighted to be back. I had such a great time here before and it feels like a fantastic opportunity to come back. 

“I always had a feeling I’d be back. I love it here. To come back to a club where I’ve had so many memories, it made so much sense. It’s a fantastic football club and I’ve had my most enjoyable moments here. Hopefully that happens again.”

If you’d like to sponsor Christian, please contact reception@fgr.co.uk.
