Salford City are delighted to announce the loan signing of Tyler Forbes from Newport County.
The 23-year-old right-back joins on a loan until the end of the season having made 20 appearances in all competitions this season, including County’s FA Cup win against Leicester City.
Starting his career at Preston North End, Forbes played for Graham Alexander at Fleetwood Town before Brighton & Hove Albion signed him in 2016. After a loan at Accrington Stanley last season, he moved to Newport County in the summer.
Now he is hoping to make an impression and play his part in his first experience of the Vanarama National League.
“I can’t wait, I’ve been in the past couple of days with the lads getting to know them, training, it’s been good so far and I’ve really enjoyed it.
“Hopefully I can contribute to what the rest of the lads have done throughout the season, try and do my part, play a part and hopefully do something great this season.
“I’m looking forward to it, it’s a different challenge, a challenge I’ve not faced yet, but I’m looking forward to it!”
Welcome to Salford, Tyler, and we wish you a successful stay here at The Peninsula Stadium! He is eligible for tonight’s game at Harrogate, and will wear the number 16 shirt.
