Mid­fielder Smith signs per­ma­nent Bath deal

Gloucestershire Echo - - CHELTENHAM TOWN -

TRANS­FER-LISTED mid­fielder Tom Smith has left Chel­tenham Town to sign a per­ma­nent deal with Bath City.

The 21-year-old signed a two year deal at Whad­don Road last sum­mer af­ter be­ing re­leased by Swin­don Town.

He spent most of last sea­son on loan with the Na­tional League South Ro­mans, where he had also im­pressed dur­ing an ear­lier tem­po­rary spell at Tw­er­ton Park in 2017/18.

Smith made one sub­sti­tute ap­pear­ance for Chel­tenham, in the Carabao Cup first round vic­tory over Colch­ester United, go­ing on in the 74th minute and miss­ing a penalty in the shoot-out.

Smith’s de­par­ture means that all three play­ers placed on the trans­fer list by Robins boss Michael Duff at the end of last sea­son have now de­parted.

Manny Duku was signed by Torquay United, while fel­low for­ward Liam Mcalin­den left by mu­tual con­sent and has been train­ing with Wal­sall.

Duff said: “We’ve freed up a bit of money and they’ve gone to play at clubs where they will play a bit more.”
