‘I Want to Be a Part of it’

Hutchinson began his career with Southend United, joining Derby in October 2020. He became a regular for Southend last season during the 2019/20 season, making 24 appearances in all competitions in what was a turbulent season at Roots Hall.

After impressing with the Essex-based side, Hutchinson sealed a move to Pride Park to join their U23’s side. During his short spell, Hutchinson has become a senior figure and captained the side during their 2-0 defeat to Chorley in the third round of the FA Cup.

Speaking to the official Forest Green Rovers website after completing his move, Hutchinson said: “I’m really excited. As soon as I heard of the opportunity to join the club, I was buzzing to get the move done.

“I’ve heard about the great football that the team play – and the way the club is going. I want to be a part of it.

“I spoke to the Head Coach and loved everything that he had to say. In the Under-23s league, you don’t get to play week in, week out – so I am really excited to start playing regularly.”

A move to Forest Green will certainly offer the 20-year-old the chance for regular football. Mark Cooper’s side play five times between the now and the end of January, as well as five games currently next month.

As a result, the signing of Hutchinson will offer Cooper the depth and quality to alternate his squad in their bid to stake their claim for a play-off spot.
