Steve Grieve has made his first signing as Forest Green’s head of performance & recruitment by returning to Scotland to swoop for former Scottish international Dylan McGeouch.
The 29-year-old midfielder, who caught the eye in Rovers’ Papa John’s defeat at home to Cheltenham Town last night, joins on a deal until the end of the season having departed Aberdeen in the summer.
McGeouch, who was capped twice by Scotland, will add a touch of experience to Rovers’ youthful squad having served the likes of Celtic, Hibernian and Sunderland.
On making the move to The Bolt New Lawn, McGeouch said: “I’m really happy to join FGR and I’m excited to get going.“Hopefully, I can help the team win more games and climb the League One table.”
Cheltenham Town progressed to the last 16 of the Papa John’s Trophy with a dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Rovers.
Connor Wickham missed with their second spot kick and Josh March saw his effort suerbly saved by Luke Southwood, allowing Wade Elliott’s side to pinch a 4-3 shoot-out win after the tie had finished 1-1 after 90 minutes.
Liam Sercombe, Elliot Bonds, Charlie Brown and Ryan Broom all scored for Cheltenham, while Myles Peart-Harris, Corey O’Keefe and Harvey Bunket struck for Rovers.
Earlier, Rovers had opened the scoring through March’s 24th minute near post header from Harry Boyes’ pin-point corner.
