Paul Doswell has unveiled his second signing of the summer after agreeing terms for the return of left-sided midfielder Dan Wishart from Forest Green Rovers. 26-year-old Dan first joined the club in November 2014 and went on to make 98 appearances in his first spell, playing an important role in the National League South championship success in 2016, when he was named in the divisional tam of the year, and being capped at England C level for the game against Slovakia at Sutton. After a good start to the following season in the National League he joined Forest Green and helped them win promotion to the Football League at the end of the campaign.
Paul was delighted to welcome Dan back to the club. “It’s something we’ve been working on since the season ended, and the wait has been worthwhile. I’m very pleased to get Dan back to the club where he was superb in our championship season. His pace and ability to deliver the ball will be a great asset and I’m very excited to be working with him again. I would also like to thank Mark Cooper and Richard Hughes at Forest Green for helping this move to happen.
Dan was also pleased with the move. “I loved my time here, and when I knew the gaffer was interested it was an easy decision to make to be honest. I’ve had a good two seasons and enjoyed my time at Forest Green but the opportunity to come back was offered to me, and I’m delighted to sign a two year deal.”
