Forest Green Rovers have announced that Brett Williams has re-joined the club on a permanent deal until the end of the season from League Two side Stevenage.
Both Williams and Stevenage had both agreed to mutually terminate his contract, allowing him to make a full time move to The New Lawn.
The 28 year old returns to Forest Green having enjoyed a seven game loan spell during December, where he netted once in a 3-0 home win over Kidderminster Harriers and featured in the FA Cup second round trip to Oxford United.
Signed by Stevenage in the summer from Aldershot Town, Williams has a fantastic goal scoring record in the fifth tier.
In his two seasons with the Shots he registered 39 goals in all competitions – a tally that earned him a move back into the Football League.
Having started his career in non-league circles in Hampshire with the likes of Eastleigh, Winchester City and AFC Totton, Williams secured a dream move to Championship club Reading.
He didn’t make a first team appearance for the Royals, but did gain key experience in the League thanks to loan spells at Rotherham United, Northampton Town and had a season long stint with Woking too.
The deal he has signed will keep him at the club until the end of the current campaign.
