Colchester United have completed the signing of Forest Green Rovers forward Kurtis Guthrie for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old has signed a two-year deal at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Guthrie was Forest Green's second highest scorer last season with 12 goals, helping them reach the National League play-off final at Wembley where they lost out to Grimsby Town.

The Jersey-born forward, who is an England C international, started his career with Accrington Stanley and will now be looking to make an impact in League Two with the U's.

Guthrie will compete with the likes of Denny Johnstone, Chris Porter and Macauley Bonne for a place in the U's forward line, this season.
