O'Keeffe makes New Lawn switch

We're delighted to announce the arrival of highly-rated wing-back Corey O'Keeffe.

The Irishman, who featured in 43 out of 46 league games for Rochdale in 2021/22 and can play on either side of the backline, becomes Rovers first signing ahead of a maiden voyage into League One.

Having begun his career with Championship side Birmingham City, the 24-year-old has appeared for Solihull Moors, Macclesfield Town and Mansfield Town before making an inital loan move to the Dale at the start of last campaign.

He said: "I'm delighted to be here and can't wait to get going."

"When I heard about the option of moving to Forest Green I told my agent it was one I wanted to pursue because it's such a great fit."

Ian Burchnall, Head Coach, FGR, added: "When I came in I spoke with Rich Hughes about some of the targets and when he said Corey I was really pleased with that one."

"We played against Rochdale twice with Notts County in the FA Cup and Corey was the stand-out player in both games."
