Koroma wants to repay the faith

Omar Koroma signed today on a three-year deal.

After announcing the arrival of three new strikers in the last fortnight, Forest Green Rovers today added another forward to their ranks with the signing of former Portsmouth and Gambian international forward Omar ‘OJ’ Koroma. 

Koroma, 22, has impressed on trial with FGR including some clinical performances in the reserves, persuading manager David Hockaday to sign the striker on a three year contract.

Koroma said: "I want to repay the faith that the manger has placed in me and help the club get promoted. I just can't wait to get next season started."

The Gambian international was previously signed by Harry Redknapp at Portsmouth in 2008 before going out on loan to Norwich City.

This latest signing is further evidence of the club’s ambitions for the coming season, with both Hockaday and Chairman Dale Vince placing promotion to League Two as a priority for the 2012-2013 campaign.

Koroma is the fourth striker to arrive at the New Lawn in the last two weeks, joining Magno Vieira (Fleetwood), Ben Wright (BraintreeTown) and Phil Marsh (Stalybridge Celtic) in what many will see as the one of the most potent forward lines in the league.
