Former Yeovil Town loanee Tahvon Campbell has not wasted any time in getting himself a new club. The 21 year old has penned terms with League Two side Forest Green Rovers, less than a day after he was released by West Bromwich Albion. The striker has signed a one year contract at the New Lawn, having had a 14 game loan spell there during the second half of the 2017-18 season.
Rovers manager Mark Cooper suggested that Campbell's move was probably his last chance to prove himself in the professional game, having had two loan spells with Yeovil Town, along with others at Kidderminster Harriers, Notts County and Solihull Moors, none of which had shown a particular spark. However, Cooper believes the player does have something about him that could allow him to succeed:
"Tahv showed us on numerous occasions during his loan spell with us that he was a real handful and he had something about him. We’ve given him a deal where he has got to really prove himself. It's probably a last-chance saloon for Tahv. He has had three or four loans that haven't worked out, he's come to us, felt at home and we've given him an opportunity to kick on."
Campbell himself prefers not to see it as a last chance for him to establish himself as a first team professional, but added that having already experienced the set-up at Forest Green that he saw it as an easy decision:
"Having been here before it was quite an easy decision, knowing the whole background of the club as well as the staff and players. I really enjoyed my loan spell at the club and staying in the league was a great feeling and hopefully next season we can push for bigger things. I wouldn't say it is my last chance but I feel the club have given me the opportunity to show what I can do and I am thankful for that. I just want to get a whole season under my belt and try and score as many goals as I can."
