One of Darren Sarll’s first signings as Glovers manager, experienced defender Lee Collins agreed a two-year deal at Huish Park.
The 30-year-old played a part in helping Forest Green Rovers to the League Two play-offs last season but has now made the short trip to Somerset.
Having played the entirety of his career in the EFL amassing over 350 league appearances, Collins has been handed the captaincy for 2019/20.
Able to operate all across the back four and in defensive midfield, he started out at Wolves prior to helping Hereford United to promotion from League Two whilst on loan at Edgar Street.
A four-year stay at Port Vale followed where Collins made over 120 appearances, before spending time in the Championship with Barnsley.
Stints at Shrewsbury, Northampton and Mansfield followed prior to joining Forest Green in May 2017.
In Summer 2020, alongside fellow centre back Luke Wilkinson, Collins extended his stay for an extra year.
