Player Information

30 March 1990

A natural goalscorer, Taylor was originally on the books of Oxford United before moving into non-league football and hitting form with Forest Green Rovers from 2011 onwards.

Three seasons later Taylor moved to Bristol Rovers to boost the blue and white half of the city’s bid for an immediate escape from non-league football.

He scored 20 times in the Conference, including in both legs of the play-off semi-final against his former employers.

Last season Taylor was again the star of the show with 28 goals as Rovers snatched promotion on the final day of the campaign.

Having established himself as of one of the lower leagues' hottest properties, Taylor is looking to fire in goals on the red half of Bristol on an equally regular basis.
