Former Forest Green keeper joins Tranmere Rovers


Tranmere Rovers have signed goalkeeper Luke McGee on a one-year contract following his free transfer from Forest Green.

McGee,27, played 25 games last season for Forest Green, but dropped down the pecking order following the January transfer window arrival of Ross Doohan from Tranmere Rovers and spent the second half of last season with Derby County.

McGee turned professional at Tottenham in July 2014 and worked with Brad Friedel, Michel Vorm and Hugo Lloris during his three years as the north London club’s third-choice goalkeeper.

In 2017, McGee joined Portsmouth on a three-year deal, but after 50 appearances in his first season at Fratton Park.

McGee will go down in Rovers’ history as the goalkeeper who played every league match in the 2021/22 season, recording 23 wins, 15 draws and 19 clean sheets and will be reunited at Prenton Park with former Forest Green midfielder Regan Hendry.

“I’m over the moon to get it done. I’m just ready to hit the ground running on Monday and get started,” he said.

“The gaffer [Ian Dawes] explained his philosophy, his plans and it went hand in hand with how I want to do it.”
