Falkirk Football Club is delighted to welcome Nicky Hogarth on a loan deal from Nottingham Forest FC.

The goalkeeper joins The Bairns until January 2023.

Born in Falkirk, Nicky came through the age groups at Rangers before making the switch to Premier League side Nottingham Forest last summer after the end of his contract with the Ibrox side. Since the move to The City Ground, he has featured for their under-23 team in the Premier League 2.

The 21-year-old is the son of Myles Hogarth, who played 126 games in goal for Falkirk over three years at the club in the early 2000’s.

Manager John McGlynn said of his latest signing:

“We hadn’t planned for three goalkeepers to be quite honest, it’s a real blow to lose PJ who had been doing really well, he and Paddy have been different class so far. PJ’s injury put us in a situation where we had to do something, and given it looked like a bad injury we didn’t want to wait in getting someone in.

“Nicky was put to us; he’s a local boy and he knows the stadium and the club. He was down at Notts Forest, and they were keen for him to come up here as well. It was a no brainer situation, one that we didn’t want to be in, but we have had to make the most of it.”

Nicky will wear the number 31 shirt for The Bairns this season.
