Outgoing Yeovil Town midfielder Connor Smith has quickly found himself a new club. The former Plymouth Argyle and AFC Wimbledon player, who cut short his Huish Park contract yesterday, has signed for National League side Boreham Wood, who narrowly missed out on promotion to the Football League last season when they lost the Play-Off Final against Tranmere Rovers at Wembley Stadium.
Smith has some connections with Boreham Wood. He started his career with Watford, whose Reserve side used their Meadow Park ground, meaning that he is very familiar with the surroundings, even if stadium developments since then have changed the way it looks. Smith made reference to that when he agreed to sign up:
"I am delighted; I remember playing here during my time at Watford in reserve games and you can see the massive growth of the club, even since then. The pitch is unbelievable, the ground is quality and the facilities are unbelievable for this level. I am just delighted to be back at the ground and back in an area that I am used to, and I cannot wait to get going. It didnít take long to sort. When he (Luke Garrard) found out that I was leaving Yeovil, the interest was there immediately. We spoke, and I didn't take much convincing to be honest."
Boreham Wood haven't revealed the length of contract that Connor Smith has signed.
