Exciting attacking midfielder Liam Noble has signed for Forest Green Rovers agreeing a two-year deal at The New Lawn.

The 25-year-old scored 10 goals and made 8 assists from midfield for Notts County in League Two last season.

Noble moves to The New Lawn on a free transfer and will link once more with manager Mark Cooper, who oversaw the final part of his Notts County career.

Forest Green manager Mark Cooper said: “Liam is a very talented player, very creative fgrand scores goals.

“It’s a fantastic achievement for the club to be able to sign a player of his quality.”

Born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Noble began his football career at the Sunderland academy and moved into the reserve team squad as an 18-year-old in 2009–10 season.

He moved on loan to League One side Carlisle United in January 2011 and went on to play 24 times in all competitions while scoring three times, as his loan was extended until the end of the season.

After impressing for the Cumbrians in his first stint, a six-month loan deal was arranged at the start of the 2011-12 season and Noble eventually moved permanently to Carlisle in January 2012.

In all, Noble spent three and a half seasons at Carlisle, playing 149 times and scoring 22 goals.

The dead ball specialist then moved to Notts County on a two-year deal and after a solid first season, where he scored six goals and was credited with two assists from midfield, Noble was County’s main creative outlet and second-highest scorer during 2015-16.

Noble finished his time at Notts County having made 78 appearances, scored 16 goals and 10 assists.
