Exeter City is delighted to announce the signing of towering striker Harry Smith on a season-long loan from Leyton Orient, subject to EFL approval.
Smith, who scored 15 goals for the O’s last season in all competitions, stands at 6ft 5 inches tall and has made 52 appearances for the London side, including seven this season, and becomes Matt Taylor’s fourth summer signing.
As a youngster, Smith began his career with Brentford, Chelsea and Gillingham, as well as spells with Sevenoaks Town and Sittingbourne, but it was at Folkestone Invicta where he caught the eye of EFL clubs. Millwall signed the striker in 2016 before loaning him out to Swindon, where he made 14 appearances, scoring three.
In 2018, Smith joined Macclesfield Town on a one year deal, scoring ten, before signing for Northampton on a three year deal in July 2019. He netted a total of 11 for the Cobblers and after a brief loan spell at Motherwell, joined Orient last summer.
Harry will link up with his new team mates on Friday where we will be catching up with him for his first interview as a Grecian, as well as hearing reaction from manager Matt Taylor.
