67. Matt Smith (On loan at Doncaster Rovers, until May 2022)


Born: October 5th 2000

Position: Central-midfield

International: None (eligible to represent England)

Loan spells: Swindon Town, Charlton Athletic

A midfielder who is a superb passer, Smith endured a mixed time out on loan last season as he had spells with Swindon Town and Charlton Athletic.

The Hale End product featured prominently for Swindon initially but lost his place in the side following a managerial change and then went to Charlton, where he struggled to get into the starting lineup on a regular basis.

This season the youngster has headed to League One again, this time with Doncaster Rovers, as he looks to play regularly.

Smith was named on the bench for the Arsenal first-team on several occasions towards the end of the 2019/20 season, including for the FA Cup success against Chelsea. He has much experience of youth football at Arsenal and won the southern section title with the U18s in 2018/19.
