Aarran Racine has developed a reputation as one of the best central defenders outside of the Football League having fought back from injury to star in the back line at The New Lawn.
The Worthing born defender looks destined for bigger things and is currently the longest serving player at FGR.
He joined the club in the summer of 2012 after impressing in pre-season friendlies against Wealdstone and Manchester United.
Initially signing a three-month contract, it was increased into a two-year deal shortly after, especially after his memorable goal scoring debut in an away win over AFC Telford United in August 2012.
After suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury in a match at Woking during the 2013-14 season, his comeback on Boxing Day 2014 kick-started a terrific run in the team that saw him fail to miss a game as he helped the club to the Conference Premier play-offs for the first time in April 2015.
Now a leading member of the squad, his composed and dominant displays at the back have seen him produce some inspiring performances in recent times.
He had originally began his career at Southampton. He rose through the ranks at St Mary's and as a teenager was heavily involved in the first team squad, without making an appearance.
A loan spell at Yeovil Town was disrupted by injury, and following his departure from the Saints, he's settled comfortably into life at Forest Green.
