Forest Green make eight new eve-of-season signings

Forest Green Rovers

Blue Square Premier side Forest Green Rovers have signed eight more players on the eve of the new season.

Midfielder Jonathan Else played a handful of games in midfield last season while goalkeeper Zak Jones joins elder brother Luke at the New Lawn.

Striker James Norwood comes on a month-long loan from Exeter, while Ollie Cleaver, Yan Klukowski and James Baldwin all impressed in pre-season.

And defenders Gavin Caines and Jamie Grimes were signed late on Friday.

Caines, 26, started his career with Walsall, then had a spell with Cheltenham Town, before moving on to Kidderminster Harriers and finished last season on loan at Luton.

Teenager Grimes, 19, has moved on loan from Swansea City, with whom he has come through the ranks.

Central defender Lee Ayres has been released after failing to agree terms.

All eight new players have been registered in time to travel to Mansfield Town for Saturday's opening game of the season.
