Barnet Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Harry Smith on-loan until the end of the season from Leyton Orient.
The 27-year-old striker scored 13 goals in League Two for The O’s last season and has featured in League One games this season while on-loan at Exeter City.
Smith started his career at Folkestone Invicta where he scored 13 goals in 19 appearances. That earned him a move to Championship side Millwall in 2016. Following a loan-spell with Swindon Town, Smith signed for Macclesfield Town. The 6,5ft forward scored 9 goals for The Silkmen in his debut season for the club. He then signed for Northampton Town and helped guide them to Play-Off success in 2020. Smith would feature 16 times in League One the following season. In 2021 Smith then signed for Leyton Orient.
Upon signing, Harry Smith, said:
“I’ve never played here before, (Barnet) are a big club in the division and it’s good to see them battling at the top end. I want to bring more goals to the team”
Barnet FC Head Coach, Dean Brennan, said:
“We’ve been in dialogue with Harry (Smith) and his agent for a long time. I know Martin Ling, we have a very good relationship with Leyton Orient.
A lot of National League sides were after him. It’s suited the boy (Harry Smith) to stay in the London area and with how we play was a big selling point.
He will come straight into the squad and add another dynamic to our attacking line.”
Smith will wear the number 30 shirt.
Welcome to Barnet, Harry!
The deal is subject to the usual FA and League clearances.
