Jason Ainsley has strengthened his Spennymoor Town defensive options with the signing of former Fleetwood and Brighton and Hove Albion full-back Tyler Forbes.
Forbes, 23, began his youth career at Preston North End, before joining Fleetwood in the summer of 2014 following his release.
At the end of the 2015/16 season, he joined Brighton for an undisclosed fee – signing for two years, linking up with their Development Squad.
A short loan spell in the 2017-18 season to Accrington Stanley came before Forbes made a permanent switch to Newport County last season, where he made 20 appearances over the course of the season.
Forbes made the switch to AFC Fylde of the National League in September 2019, making six appearances and scoring one goal during his time with The Coasters.
