Former Coventry City loanee Farrend Rawson has signed for League Two side Forest Green Rovers,

Rawson, who made twelve appearances for the Sky Blues last season, has ended his contract at Derby County and signed for the Nailsworth based side on an eighteen-month deal.

The defender had been on loan at Accrington Stanley earlier this season and said to the Forest Green Rovers club website: “The manager was really positive and excited about bringing me in, saying it was a good opportunity for me to come in and show people what I’m about.

“The way this club is pushing, I don’t think the league table is doing them any justice but I think it’s a massive club and it’s pushing towards where I want to be going as well.

“When we played them earlier in the season it was a really tough game and it was surprising given where they were in the league.

“If I’m being honest, they blew us all away and they were one of the best teams we have played. At the time, we were flying and they limited us to a couple of chances.

“After playing against them, hearing the thoughts of the manager and the owner and the aspirations for the club going forward, it was a no brainer.”
