Forshaw joined Everton aged seven. In the summer of 2008 he was offered a place as a first-year scholar and soon claimed a regular place in the Everton U18 squad. First team manager David Moyes gave Forshaw his competitive debut in a Europa League tie against BATE Borisov on 17 December 2009. Forshaw was an unused substitute on two other occasions during the 2009/10 season and he made 17 Premier Reserve League North appearances, scoring once against Manchester City. He made his Premier League debut as an 82nd minute substitute in a 3–0 Premier League win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on 9 April 2011 and was an unused substitute for a further three league games towards the end of the 2010/11 season. He also made 14 Premier Reserve League North appearances and scored two goals. Forshaw signed a one-year contract extension in June 2011. In the 2011/12 season, Forshaw was an unused substitute on two occasions for the first team and won the Reserve Player Of The Year award, having scored twice in 13 appearances. He was released at the end of the season after his contract expired.
On 24 February 2012, Forshaw joined League One side Brentford on a one-month youth loan, joining fellow Everton loanee Jake Bidwell at Griffin Park. He made his debut the following day as a 69th minute substitute for Sam Saunders in a 0–0 draw with Scunthorpe United. He made seven appearances and returned to Everton after sustaining a broken jaw in a 2–0 victory over Rochdale on 24 March.
Forshaw joined Brentford permanently on a two-year contract for an undisclosed fee in May 2012. He scored the first professional goal of his career in a 1–0 victory over Oldham Athletic on 22 September 2012. Forshaw received the first red card of his career after picking up a second yellow card in a 2–1 league victory over Crawley Town on 26 February 2013. After Brentford missed out on automatic promotion to the Championship following a 1–0 defeat to Doncaster Rovers, it was Forshaw who scored the winning penalty in the playoff semi-final shoot-out against Swindon Town to send the Bees to the final. Forshaw played in the final against Yeovil Town at Wembley Stadium, a 2–1 defeat consigning Brentford to another season in League One. He made 53 appearances in all competitions during the 12/13 season and scored three goals. Forshaw was rewarded with a new three-year contract on 27 June 2013, despite having a year of his existing contract left to run. Forshaw scored his first goal of the 13/14 season in a 3–0 victory over Sheffield United on 10 August. With the absence of regular penalty taker Kevin O'Connor through injury, Forshaw assumed the role and scored his third penalty of the season (his fifth goal overall) in a 3–0 away league victory over Preston North End on 21 December. Forshaw's run of 24 consecutive league starts ended when he was left out of the squad for a 2–0 win over Port Vale at Griffin Park on 11 January 2014 and his absence drew speculation about his future. Manager Mark Warburton later stated that Forshaw was suffering with a calf problem and Forshaw himself said his "aim is to get promoted with Brentford. I’m really enjoying it here. I feel I’m gaining a lot of experience playing regularly. Last year was a massive learning curve for me".
