Biography


A stalwart for Forest Green Rovers, the 30-year-old defender became a fans’ favourite during his initial spell with the club before returning to Gloucestershire to help Rovers to the League Two play-offs.

As well as 170 appearances for Forest Green, Chris has enjoyed successful promotion pushes with Coventry City and Bury.

A product of Bolton’s youth system, Chris was named Kilmarnock captain by Tommy Wright upon his arrival at Rugby Park.

A bad hamstring injury disrupted his progress and he wouldn’t return to league action until December.

Once he returned to the side then the skipper played an important role and scored the first goal of the Derek McInnes era and ended the season by holding the Championship trophy high into the air.
