Crawley sign Smith
Crawley Town have made Jimmy Smith their first signing of the summer.
The 27-year-old has joined from Stevenage for an undisclosed nominal fee on a two-year contract.
Smith began his career at Chelsea where he made one Premier League appearance as a substitute against Newcastle in 2006.
He also enjoyed loan spells at QPR, Norwich, Sheffield Wednesday and Leyton Orient, who he eventually joined on a permanent basis in 2009.
After 18 goals in 144 Football League appearances for Orient, Smith joined Stevenage on a free transfer last summer.
Smith has represented England at under-16, 17 and 19 level.
Boss John Gregory said: “I first knew Jimmy when I was at QPR and I’m delighted he is now going to be playing for me.
“He’s an aggressive, energetic midfielder player and I like his attitude. He’s a winner and he galvanizes the players around him.
"He’s got a lot of experience at this level and I think he’s capable of even more and I’m delighted he’s coming to Crawley because I think he can really improve our squad.”
