Cambridge United have signed former Republic of Ireland international goalkeeper David Forde on an initial one-year deal.

The former Millwall stopper replaces Will Norris who was recently sold to Championship club Wolves.

Forde, 37, kept 19 clean sheets for Portsmouth last season to help them lift the League Two title.

Once Will departed for Wolves, we decided that we would aim to bring in an experienced goalkeeper. There was one stand-out candidate.

David arrives with a glowing C.V. that very recently has a League Two winner's medal attached to it. He showed last season that not only is he a prime goalkeeper but a terrific leader too.

He brings not only stability to the position but numerous other credentials also, that will really benefit our club.

To have both him and Dimi (Mitov) as our goalkeepers this year is fantastic for our group of players.

– Shaun Derry, Cambridge United manager
