Anthony Forde (born 16 November 1993) is an Irish footballer who plays as a wide midfielder. He is signed to English club Wolverhampton Wanderers.


Forde moved to Wolves in summer 2009 to become part of their academy group. He made his senior debut on 23 August 2011 as a substitute in a League Cup tie against Northampton Town,[2] and his Premier League debut on 26 November 2011 at Chelsea.[3] He made six appearances in the top flight as the club suffered relegation.

The winger started the first two games of new Wolves' manager Ståle Solbakken but gradually faded from the first team as the season progressed. In March 2013 he moved on loan to League One side Scunthorpe United for the remainder of the 2012–13 season.[4]

He has represented the Republic of Ireland at numerous youth levels.
