If you can't beat them, join them - and that's exactly what ​Cambridge United have done as they've released their own signing video - although slightly cringey to say the least - to announce goalkeeper David Forde.  

Even US President Donald Trump got in the act to demand the announcement of Forde, and we can confirm this is not fake news as ​Cambridge's official website unveiled their newest signing on an initial one-year deal. 

Forde is considered to be one of the most experienced keepers in the English football league after making appearances for the likes of West Ham, Cardiff City, Bournemouth and Millwall. 

The 37-year-old kept 19 clean sheets in 46 appearances for Portsmouth last season, where he played a crucial role in guiding the club to the League Two title. 

The Republic of Ireland international has 24 caps to his name and after putting pen to paper at Cambridge, he said: "I'm delighted to be here and really looking forward to starting my first session with the first team this week.

"When I spoke to the Head Coach, he was very ambitious and that was backed up when I spoke with Ben (Strang, Head of Football Operations) and Jez (George, CEO). Everyone has been very positive about progress at the Club, what we hope to bring this season and going into the future.


"The Club obviously just missed out on the play-offs last year, and I have my own ambitions to get another promotion again, so that was a big part in making my decision.

"The squad have already had a large portion of pre-season together, so it's important for me to now get some game time under my belt, and start to integrate into the Club. 


"I want to be able to hit the ground running and use my experience to get into the swings of things quickly."
