June 21st 2021
Conor Shaw

Forest Green Rovers have announced the signing of Opi Edwards on a one-year-deal from Sky Bet Championship side Bristol City.

The 21-year-old makes the move to Nailsworth after leaving Ashton Gate this summer - and started his career with the Bristol Inner City Academy before linking with up the Robins youth-squad in 2015.

Edwards made his debut in the FA Cup under Lee Johnson back in 2018 and appeared four times in the league during the previous campaign.

Spells on loan with Bath City, Solihull Moors and Torquay United followed throughout his City career, furthering his first-team football development. 

Paragraph Break

Rich Hughes, Director of Football, said: "Opi is a player who has real talent - and we're delighted to get this deal over the line.

"We've got a squad full of young and exciting players - so we're sure Opi will thrive in that environment."

We'll bring you a full and exclusive interview with Opi when the players return to pre-season training next week.
