Former Forest Green, Fairford Town & Stonehouse Town winger joins Tuffley Rovers

Tuffley Rovers have added to their attacking options with the signing of Liam Gale from Oldland Abbotonians.

The former Forest Green youth player completed registration yesterday and was at Saw MIlls to watch his new side in action, in their 0-0 draw against Longlevens in the FA Vase last night. 

Gale joins along with former Charlton Rovers winger Sam Dodoo, with the latter making his debut during the match last night. The pair will be crucial to Tuffley Rovers over the course of the season as Tuffley look to add more goals to their game.

The winger, who has also been utilised as a striker over the years, scored 14 goals in Fairford Town’s first season in the Hellenic Premier last season before moving to Stonehouse Town and finally onto Western League side Oldland Abbotonians.

Speaking to Severn Sport last night Gale said he had “unfinished business in the Hellenic League” and feels he is good enough to help fire Tuffley Rovers up the table.

Gale also said that the move was hard to turn down as it would allow him to spend more time with his young family.

Due to being cup-tied Liam Gale will be unavailable for Tuffley Rovers in the FA Vase 2nd Qualifying Round replay on Tuesday night but will be in contention for Rovers’ away trip to Holmer Green on Saturday 22nd September.
