Leyton Orient have enhanced their Sky Bet League Two promotion credentials with the signing of 23-year-old striker, Paul Smyth.
Smyth has put pen to paper on a two-year deal at the Breyer Group Stadium. The player started the last campaign at Charlton Athletic before moving to Accrington Stanley.
Having started at Queen’s Park Rangers, Smyth spent a successful loan spell at Wycombe Wanderers. Speaking to www.leytonorient.com, he enthused: “We want to get promoted.
“This is a big Club. The way Kenny wants to play is something I want to be a part of. Promotion is always your ambition when you join a team and I hope we can do that this year.”
Meanwhile, O’s boss, Kenny Jackett added: “I think he is a very good signing. At 23, there is potential for him to do very well for our Club. I’m delighted he has decided to sign for us.
“His main asset, I think, is pace – I like him up front and I like him as a forward. He can score goals and I believe his pace and mobility will give defenders a lot of problems.”
