As manager Matt Gray continues to add to his squad for the 2023-24 season we're delighted to welcome Harry Smith to Sutton. The 6'5'' striker, who is 28, will join us on July 1st after his contract with Leyton Orient ends.
Sutton supporters will best remember Harry for a stunning goal, his second of the game, in Orient's 4-1 win against us two seasons ago, which was voted the League Two goal of the month for November 2021, beating Omar Bugiel's effort for us against Mansfield. That was Harry's first season with Orient and he ended it with 15 goals in 45 games, and last season after a loan spell with Exeter he spent the last three months on loan at Barnet, scoring nine goals in fifteen games as the Bees reached the National League play-offs.
The earlier part of Harry's career saw him playing youth football for Brentford, Chelsea and Gillingham and non-league football in Kent before Millwall signed him from Folkestone Invicta in 2016, and he has subsequently played in the Football League for Macclesfield and Northampton and had loan spells with Swindon and Motherwell.
Matt Gray commented: '' I've known Harry for a number of years and first came across him when he signed for Millwall. It's a huge signing for the club as he's in the prime of his career, and I'm delighted to have him on board.''
We will be at training later in the week to grab interviews with the new signings, with possibly more news to come then.
