PositionForward

Forinton had a frustrating time at Peterborough United in 2000-01 when injuries and loss of form meant that he rarely featured in the first team.

An early-season hernia operation kept him out until December and in the New Year, he was loaned out to Conference title-hopefuls Yeovil Town.

However in his second game for them, he suffered a broken nose and injured ankle and knee ligaments when falling awkwardly and he failed to recover match fitness before the summer break.

He is a bustling all-action striker with a good eye for goal.

Forinton's contract at Peterborough was cancelled in August 2002 by mutual consent.

He joined Torquay United on a non-contract basis but left Plainmoor after one only game for the Gulls.
