We are delighted to announce the signing of Archie Thayer following his departure from Foreet Green Rovers.
Thayer (18), joins us after captaining Forest Green Rovers Academy side for the last two seasons. The young midfielder has already caught the eye in preseason matches against Weston-super-Mare and Hallen.
Manager Danny Greaves commented,
“I am pleased to announce the signing of Archie Thayer. Archie has shown a tremendous desire to play for our club, having trained with us since we resumed when lockdown rules allowed in April, following his release from Forest Green Rovers. At only 18, I think he has an excellent character, and will be a leader in years to come having previously captained the Forest Green Rovers academy side last season. He has been superb in our last 2 friendlies against Hallen and Weston, and I am excited to see what he can do this season, and also to watch how he develops over the coming months and hopefully years. With Rob Hobbs deciding to take a short break for personal reasons, this offers Archie a great opportunity to show what he can do.
Archie added “I have really enjoyed my time with the club so far. Everything is run properly and professionally and we have a great group of lads. I am looking forward to the new season and buzzing to have signed and can’t wait to get started.”
We all welcome Archie to the club and can’t wait to see him in action.
