‘We’re very strong in that area’…

Forest Green boss, Rob Edwards, has said, as per a report by Gloucestershire Live: “We had a really honest conversation and I just feel that we’re very strong in that area of the pitch at the moment.

“It wasn’t something that we were able to do right now but we will keep an eye on him and follow his progress. He’s a really nice boy.”

The current fourth tier table toppers will continue to keep tabs on Preston but his search for a new club continues.

Career to date

Preston rose up through the academy at Nottingham Forest and was a regular for them at various youth levels during the course of his five years at the City Ground.

The youngster trained with the first-team on a number of occasions but never made a competitive senior appearance for the Championship side.

Preston made 29 appearances in all competitions for the Mariners as they were relegated to the National League.
