Forest Green Striker Jamille Matt has triggered an extension in his contract, ensuring he will stay at the innocent New Lawn for a further 12 months.

The 31-year-old has made 23 appearances for Rovers since making the switch to Gloucestershire from Newport County - and the Jamaican-born striker has been FGR's lead marksman so far this season, with nine goals in all competitions.

Since joining Mark Cooper's side in the summer, Matt made an impression in the opening matches of the season - securing a point with his first FGR goal versus Walsall and scoring a hat-trick on Rovers' visit to Scunthorpe United back in October.

Rich Hughes, Director of Football at Forest Green Rovers said: "Since joining the club, Jamille has shown his value both on and off the pitch.

"He has been excellent in leading the line for us and has also been a positive influence within our group.

"We are delighted to be able to announce this extension and we look forward to the rest of this season and beyond."
