CAERNARFON Town have made a significant addition to their squad with the signing of Leo Smith.

The talented midfielder arrives at The Oval on a loan deal from Wrexham, having spent the first half of the season at JD Welsh Premier League rivals Llandudno.

Manager Sean Eardley, said: “I'm thrilled to add Leo Smith to the squad for the second phase.

“I was impressed with him over the two games when we played Llandudno and then he returned to Wrexham after the game New Year’s Day.

“After enquiring with the relevant parties Wrexham were more than happy for Leo to go out on loan again and get some games and we're happy he's joined us, as a number of Welsh and English sides were after his services.

“I'd like to thank Graham Barrow, Carl Darlington and the staff at Wrexham FC for allowing the move and would personally like to welcome Leo to the Oval.”

Smith was one of the shining lights during what has been a disappointing campaign at the Giant Hospitality Stadium so far, and he strengthens an area of need for the Canaries following the recent departures of Ben Maher and Ross Stephens, who joined Prestatyn Town and Rhyl respectively.

He has signed on at the Canaries until the end of the season and is looking forward to contributing right away for a club that has enjoyed a phenomenal first campaign back in the top flight.

“I’m really looking forward to playing more Welsh Premier League games,” said Smith.

“Caernarfon took a huge crowd to Bangor in the cup and I’m really looking forward to getting involved.”
