ISSAC HUTCHINSON insists Forest Green ticked all the right boxes after completing a season-long loan from Derby County.
The 20-year-old attacking midfielder makes the move to the innocent New Lawn on a loan-deal after impressing for the Rams’ Under-23s side during this campaign.
Hutchinson joined Derby following a four-year spell with Southend United which saw him make 40 first-team appearances in total during their League One spell, scoring two goals.
Born on the south coast in Eastbourne, the midfielder progressed through the youth ranks at Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion before heading to the Shrimpers in 2016.
Hutchinson played for Derby County in their FA Cup encounter with Chorley – and the youngster also captained the side.
After completing the move, Isaac said: “I’m really excited. As soon as I heard of the opportunity to join the club, I was buzzing to get the move done.
“I’ve heard about the great football that the team play – and the way the club is going. I want to be a part of it.
“I spoke to Mar Cooper and loved everything that he had to say. In the Under-23s league, you don’t get to play week in, week out – so I am really excited to start playing regularly.”
