Labour nominee for Stroud David Drew says “more needs to be done” in order for him to hold the marginal seat at this Thursday’s General Election.

Speaking at a rally at Forest Green Rovers football club today with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and the side’s chairman Dale Vince, Mr Drew warned party supporters to not stop campaigning or else he could lose Stroud.

He has held the seat since 2015, and was the MP for Stroud from 1997 to 2010 before being ousted by Conservative Neil Carmichael.

Jeremy Corbyn was at The New Lawn to rile up support for incumbent Labour MP, who he said was a “good friend of his” and was confident he will be re-elected this week.

Mr Drew will defend a slim majority of 687 against Conservative candidate Siobhan Baillie, Green candidate Molly Scott Cato, Brexit Party’s Desi Latimer and Libertarian Party candidate Glenville Gogerly.

Speaking to Labour supporters, Mr Drew said: “We can win big, but we can only do that with your support. It’s a big thank you, but a big ask. Please don’t stop now. I know we’re tired, but there is still a lot more to do.”

According to the most recent analysis by Electoral Calculus, the fate of the Stroud constituency could be determined by barely 100 votes.

For the Conservatives to gain the sit, it would need a 0.55 per cent swing.

Mr Corbyn also told the rally he is a Forest Green Rovers fan.

He made the admission as he exchanged the league two side’s green scarf with the club’s chairman Dale Vince, who in-turn was handed a red Labour one.

However it is not clear whether Mr Corbyn supports the club alongside his constituency-team Arsenal, who he has given his backing to before.
