Forest Green boss Steve Cotterill signs former Cheltenham Town captain Ben Tozer


Forest Green have served notice of their promotion intent by capturing former Cheltenham Town captain Ben Tozer after his exit from Wrexham.

Tozer, 34, recently helped Wrexham claim back-to-back promotions from the National League to League One. The defender joins former Cheltenham players Sean Long and Liam Sercombe, who joined Steve Cotterill’s side last month.

Tozer was the Robins’ captain for their 2020/21 League Two title-winning campaign, but left to join ambitious Wrexham for £200,000.

Tozer told the FGR website: “Getting promoted back-to-back was incredible and it was amazing to be a part of the club during that time.

“I gained a lot of experience playing a good chunk of games for Wrexham and learned a lot while supporting the younger players from the sidelines.

“During my off season, I wrote up a do’s and don’ts list; what I wanted from my next move, obviously I want to continue the highs but there’s more to it than just winning games,” he said.

“The gaffer and his plans and aspirations, the kind of dressing room and culture he wants in the team, the other players and signings he wants to make, and he was keen to accommodate me and my family.

“Then there’s the plans off the pitch like the new training ground, it all goes hand in hand. On what he’s looking forward to next season.

“I want a successful season on the pitch, as a player and for the club. Everyone knows that promotion out of the National League is difficult, we’ve got to work hard and I’m looking forward to getting get stuck in.”
