24 Jun 2022 : Ex-Forest forward Nialle Rodney arrives at the APEC

Front man Nialle Rodney is the newest addition to our 2022-23 squad.

The 31-year-old most recently played for Ramsbottom United but has been away from the game for a while.

He had two stints at Rammy, playing in between at FC United of Manchester, Lancaster City and Ashton United.

First time around at Harry Williams Riverside Stadium, Nialle was a team-mate of our now assistant manager Jamie Rainford.

Nialle is an experienced and much-travelled forward, who played for Nottingham Forest, Bradford City and Hartlepool United.

In 2014, he retired from professional football to pursue a career in the fashion industry.

Nialle started out at his native Nottingham, coming through Forest's Academy.

After being loaned to Ilkeston Town in 2009-10, his first senior appearance for his parent club was in November 2010, when he cane off the bench against Cardiff City.

A one-month loan deal with Burton Albion in EFL Two was limited to three appearances as he sustained an ankle injury.

On leaving Forest, Nialle went to Bradford City, again in EFL Two on a one-year deal in July 2011.

In October 2011, Nialle moved into the Conference National with Darlington on a short-term loan, the following month heading for Mansfield Town in the same division - also on loan.

He signed for another Conference club Lincoln City in January 2012 until the end of that season before going to Hartlepool Uniter of EFL Two on a one-year deal after a brief stay at AFC Telford United.

Nialle returned from football exile to play for Grantham & District League team Greyhounders.

He subsequently played for Spalding, Coalville Town, Long Eaton United and Wythenshawe Amateurs.

We welcome Nialle to APEC Taxis Stadium and wish him an enjoyable and successful stay.
