CAERNARFON Town have bolstered their squad with the signing of Leo Smith.

The former Wrexham star arrives at The Oval on a permanent basis following his release from the National League side, with Riley enjoying a hugely successful second half of the JD Welsh Premier League campaign with the club last term.

Prior to joining the Canaries, the midfielder also impressed considerably as a member of the Llandudno set-up under Iwan Williams during the first portion of the season.

Manager Allan Bickerstaff, who has worked with Smith previously, said: “I’ve been working with Leo for a number of years now and so I know his qualities.

“Watching him at the end of last season, he proved to me that he’s the type of player we wanted so we’ve gone all out to get Leo on board and I’m so glad that we’ve got him.”

Smith is the Cofis’ fourth signing of the summer after the acquisitions of Gruff John, Sam Jones and Mike Pearson, with the club aiming to build on a fantastic first season in the top flight that saw them finish in fourth spot before falling short in the Europa League playoffs.

The 21-year-old was not offered a new deal by Wrexham boss Bryan Hughes at the end of the 2018-19 campaign and although he was invited back for pre-season training, has moved on to pastures new.

He endured a frustrating two years at Wrexham since making the breakthrough during the 2016-17 campaign when he signed his first professional contract and scooped the Young Player of the Season award.

Smith made just seven appearances the following season and failed to make an appearance for the club last term.

“I’m really happy that we managed to get this over the line,” added Smith.

“I’m disappointed with how it ended at Wrexham but this is an opportunity for me to show everyone what I am about and I’m really looking forward now to the season ahead of us.”
