Forest Green are expected to field a strong side for the final pre-season match at the New Lawn on Saturday (3pm) against Newport County of League Two.
It will be Rovers’ ninth pre-season match in what has been a busy month for the club, as new boss Mark Cooper looks to shape his team for the new campaign.
The man who has been club mascot for the past eight years, Andy Carter, is hanging up his costume and will no longer be our Green Devil.
Forest Green Rovers make their shortest trip of the season tonight as they hop across the valley to take on Nailsworth rivals Shortwood United (7.30pm).
Swapping the Meadow for Meadowbank, Rovers will be hoping to continue with the attacking verve they showed against Brimscombe and Thrupp in Tuesday night’s 9-1 win.
Shortwood should present a similar challenge to that offered by Southern League South & West Division – stablemates Slimbridge, who provided stern resistance and swiftly punished indecision as FGR battled to a 3-2 win at Thornhill Park on Monday night.
FGR fans looking to go to the Newport match tomorrow are being advised to buy their tickets in advance to save money.
