Fans deliver innocent verdict on Forest Green name

Forest Green Rovers supporters have voted to stick with the familiar after choosing the innocent New Lawn as the name for the club's ground.

The League Two club put the name of their Nailsworth home to a vote among season ticket holders after signing a sponsorship deal with sustainable smoothie maker innocent drinks.

After playing at The innocent [insert name here] Stadium against Walsall, the club opened the name up for suggestions on social media.

The four shortlisted suggestions - innocent Sustadium, innocent New Lawn, innocent Fruit Bowl and Kevin - were put to a vote on Twitter with Kevin taking 65 per cent of the vote.

But season ticket holders made the final decision, 86 per cent remaining loyal to the existing New Lawn name.
