Clarets add defender Smith

1 year ago By Matt Lee

Chelmsford City Football Club have signed defender Chris Smith from Ipswich Town.

The Clarets have boosted their defensive ranks with the addition of defender Smith on a 28-day loan from Sky Bet Championship side Ipswich Town.

19-year-old Smith made his full debut for the Suffolk side earlier this season as he came on as a second-half substitute in the EFL Cup defeat at Crystal Palace.

The Ipswich-born defender became a schoolboy with the Tractor Boys in 2006 before signing a two year scholarship in 2014. He then signed a one-year pro deal in July 2016 before extending his stay at Portman Road for another year at the beginning of the 2017/18 season.

Smith has featured heavily for Town's under-23 side recently, thus warranting his first-team call-up in the EFL Cup, however the opportunity of first-team football has been offered with Rod Stringer's Chelmsford City.

Chris Smith is immediately made available for selection for Chelmsford's visit to Poole Town in the Vanarama National League South this weekend.

Everyone at Chelmsford City Football Club wishes Smith to the Melbourne Community Stadium.
