  • Nailsworth is a thriving little town with a wide variety of shops and places of interest. It is just off the A46 giving easy access to visit the southern Cotswolds and towns of interest such as Bath, Bristol to the south, Cheltenham, Gloucester to the north, with Cirencester to the east and Wales to the west.

 

  • In 1936 Rovers home ground, the Lawn Ground, was purchased by the committee members at the club for £120 at an auction. In 2002 the club put forward a planning application for a new ground 400 yards up the road from The Lawn that would come under Football League standards.  The club moved into The New Lawn in 2006. The first match at the new ground was a pre-season friendly against Swindon Town

 

  • 1989 they changed its name to Stroud F.C. in an attempt to revitalise the football club. This move failed to improve their fortunes and the club struggled both on the pitch and with finances. The name was changed back to Forest Green Rovers for the 199293 season 

 

         Nailsworth was selected by The Sunday Times newspaper (March 2014) as one of the best places to live in Britain . It is notable for its free car parking.

 

  • Green energy tycoon and Ecotricity owner Dale Vince launched a takeover of the club in August 2010 and Vince became the club's majority shareholder and then chairman a few months later. Forest Green made national headlines in February 2011 when Vince introduced a ban on all red meat being sold at the club, on health and ethical grounds.
          
  • They are nicknamed  Rovers, The Green, FGR, The Little Club On The Hill, Green Army and  play in green and black shirts, green shorts and green and black socks.
