Ian Burchnall said on the Forest Green Rovers club website “I’m really delighted to sign at FGR and be part of what is an exciting chapter in the club’s history.

"I am grateful for the opportunity to come and lead the club and the challenge of football in League One was just too good to turn down, especially at a progressive and forward-thinking club.

"I want to thank Dale and Rich for bringing me in, and to Notts County for the time I spent at the club. I’m looking forward to getting started."

Dale Vince, the Forest Green Rovers chairman, said “We’re all pleased and excited to welcome Ian to the club and look forward to our first season together in League One.

"Big credit to Notts County for the way they handled this - between us we’ve shown how moves in football can still get done properly and above board.”
