New Brentford B striker Marcus Forss was pleased after signing a deal to join Kevin O'Connor's squad on Thursday. The 18-year-old put pen to paper on a two-year deal at Griffin Park, and then sat down with iFollow to explain some of his feelings on the day.

"I'm very happy to be here," said Marcus. "I'm looking forward to the next two seasons."

Asked about his first impressions of the facilities at Jersey Road, the Brentford FC Training Ground, Marcus said: "It's very good, the pitches are looking very nice and the people are really nice too."

Marcus played his youth football for West Bromwich Albion, but explained why he felt it was good to join his new team in the Capital.

"I learned quite a lot there, both positive and negative, but it was a good experience for me at West Brom.

"I like what's going on here, the Club's really going up at the moment. There's not really much negativity coming out, it's seems to be going up and I wanted to be part of it."

Asked to explain what to expect from him, Marcus told iFollow where you'll see him most on the pitch and also set out his aims for the next few years.

"I'm a goalscorer, that's my job to score goals. I'm a physical player who is really quick.

"My season goals are to be the best I can be, improve myself physically in every way and technically to push on."
