FORMER Forest Green attacker Issac Pearce has joined ambitious Southern League Premier Division Weston-super-Mare.

The 20 year-old  has penned a one-year contract  with Scott Bartlett’s side.

“He has recognised that he needs to play regularly and he’s shown a real desire to come to the club.

“He’s an exciting, creative player that our supporters will like.”
