Experienced Football League striker Chris O’Grady has signed for the Robins.

O’Grady brings a wealth of experience to Martin Carruthers’ squad, having over 500 professional appearances and 100 goals to his name.

The 36-year-old started his career with the Nottingham Forest youth setup before joining Leicester City.

He has had spells at Sheffield Wednesday, Brighton & Hove Albion, a loan back to Nottingham Forest and most recently was at Bolton Wanderers in League One.

Carruthers said: “Chris is an excellent addition to our squad and brings with him a wealth of experience.

“He is a big powerful unit and super fit, he will certainly be of huge benefit to our current strikers who will all be able to learn and develop from Chris this season.

“He will give us different attacking options and I’m sure will bring plenty of goals to the team this season.

“This is a real coup for the club.”
