Swindon Town’s addition of this player could be the best business Flitcroft does all summer

Published

Swindon Town sunk into the fourth tier of English football last season after a dismal campaign saw the the Robins finish 22nd in the league, and manager David Flitcroft will use the summer transfer window to prepare his side for an assault at the League Two automatic spots next year.

Seven new faces had already been added to the County Ground roster, but today Flitcroft has turned heads by adding a young Millwall striker to his squad on a season long loan deal from the Den.

Harry Smith made his first team bow for the Lions last season, and scored 6 goals in only 12 appearances in what was his first year of senior football with his parent club.

The youngster only linked up with Millwall last summer following a spell in non-league football, and after a promising start to his Football League career, will look to continue his development down in League Two.

The 22-year-old cuts an imposing figure, and his massive 6 ft 5 in frame will intimidate opposition defences next year.

Centre halves will struggle with the height and power of the player, who will undoubtedly find goals easy to come by in the fourth tier.

League Two football can often see the ball spend large spells in the air, and using Smith as a target man will certainly be on Flitcroft’s mind.

Smith will do well in League Two and find the net on a consistent basis, and Town fans can look forward to welcoming the youngster to their starting lineup when the start of the season rolls around next month.
