Forest Green player’s loan deal extended

Forest Green’s Fabien Robert has agreed to extend his current loan deal with Gloucester City amidst interest from other clubs, according to reports.

The 29-year old scored on his debut for Gloucester and has turned in several impressive performances said to have alerted other clubs, prompting the tigers to seal an extension.

Gloucester chairman Rob Jenner is delighted with the move: “We were of course delighted with the impact that Fabien has made and I’m assured that he is a real character in the dressing room as well as a brilliant asset on the pitch.”

The former Lorient and Swindon striker failed to secure a place in Mark Cooper’s plans, but has settled well at the Jubilee Stadium where his endeavour has helped them to the final round of FA Cup qualifying.

Our View

Robert should be too good for this level, but when you consider that Alfie Potter, a good League Two striker, is currently with Billericay in the same division, it makes a bit more sense.

The quality level between the National League South and the National League itself is decreasing all the time and Gloucester have a National league quality player, at the least, in Robert.
