Martin Smith


Martin is a central midfielder who first joined the Academy at the under-8 level.

He joined the club full-time on a two-year scholarship in summer 2012 and was ever-present in his first full campaign, scoring four goals in 20 games.

Smith can also operate in a ‘number ten’ role and he featured for the development squad on four occasions.

Smith also put pen to paper on a new deal at the club until 2016.
