Experienced defender Chris Todd is a massively popular figure at Forest Green and agreed a two year contract with the club in May 2011, arriving from Newport County.
The start to his career at Rovers hit the buffers early on however when in the opening league game of the 2011-12 season against Stockport County, he suffered a hamstring injury that would require surgery and leave him out of action for the majority of the season.
Chris began his career at hometown club Swansea City and after a brief spell in the League of Ireland with Drogheda United, he joined Exeter City, making well over 100 league appearances and becoming captain of the St James Park club.
A high profile move to Exeter’s near rivals Torquay United followed in June 2007 and he helped the Gulls back in to the Football League through promotion at Wembley in the Blue Square Premier play off final – winning the man of the match award.
The play off final at Wembley was a special occasion for Chris who had battled to overcome a serious illness in his time at Torquay after being diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia.
He has previously also spent two separate loan spells at Salisbury and joined Newport on loan in January 2010, helping the Welsh club to the Blue Square South championship.
He joined the South Wales club permanently on his release by Torquay and after a season at Spytty Park was snapped up by Rovers in a deal Forest Green manager Dave Hockaday described as a “major coup”.
In September 2011, Todd released his first book, ‘More Than Football in the Blood’, detailing his progress when suffering with leukaemia which has seen all profits donated to Leukaemia and Lymphoma research.
