Cheltenham Town have today completed the signing of forward Tahvon Campbell from Forest Green Rovers as confirmed on their official website.

The 22-year-old has signed a two year contract with the League Two side and will begin his career with the Robins ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.

The forward started his playing career at West Bromwich Albion whilst having spells on loan at Kidderminster Harriers, Yeovil Town, Notts County, Solihull Moors and Gillingham.

He spent the second half of last season on loan at League One side Gillingham but scored twice for Forest Green against Cheltenham before his short term move to the Priestfield Stadium.
