Irish international David Forde, who was released by Millwall this summer having made over 300 appearances for the club, has signed for League Two's Cambridge United.
Even in League Two, the humble press release is a bit too passé a way to announce a new singing. Indeed, the announcement of Forde joining the club was a very big deal for Cambridge fans and admirers around the world. Celebrities and luminaries from all over took to twitter in an impatient plea for the club to get on with it and #AnnounceForde.

Now that's the way to announce a new signing.
The 37 year old Galway man, capped 24 caps for Ireland, joins the League 2 club after spending last season on loan at Portsmouth, helping them to the League 2 title. He had spent the previous 8 years at Millwall, where he signs from.
Cambridge will be a team to keep an eye in League 2 for Irish fans this year, with Forde joining Jake Carroll, Gary Deegan and Emmanuel Osadebe in the squad for the upcoming season.
