With over 400 EFL appearances to his name, the Reds' club captain arrives in Somerset to bolster the Glovers' options in the middle of the park.

 

Able to operate across midfield - and with a keen eye for goal - Smith has made 169 appearances for Crawley whilst wearing the captain's armband in the majority of those outings.

 

From good pedigree having come through Chelsea's academy, the Londoner made his Blues debut in the Premier League after being introduced by Jose Mourinho away at Newcastle United in 2006.

 

Loans in the Championship with Queens Park Rangers, Norwich City and Sheffield Wednesday followed prior to a four-year stay across the capital at Leyton Orient.

 

Part of the side that went a club record 14 games unbeaten in League One, he bowed out at Brisbane Road with 189 appearances and 22 goals.

 

Swiftly snapped up by Stevenage in the summer of 2013, Smith wore the captain's armband on a number of occasions as he made 47 appearances.

 

A one-season stay in Hertfordshire was followed by a move to join the Reds where he later scored a career-best 10 goals in 2017/18, prior to having his form halted early last season after suffering a knee injury that ruled him out for the majority of the campaign.

 

Now back to fitness the midfielder arrives in Somerset to get some game time under his belt.
