A goalkeeper who is a product of Arsenal’s Hale End academy, Smith has gained experience of senior football through several non-league loan spells.

However, Smith’s stint with Welling United last season was brought to an early end by an injury that ruled him out for the majority of the campaign.

Smith could go out on loan again this season and will hope that he can remain injury free.

Last year Smith travelled with the first-team squad to Scotland for their pre-season training camp.
