Merstham Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Liam Smith.
The accomplished full back joins Moatside on an agreed dual registration from newly promoted Tonbridge Angels - where Liam was a pivotal part of their successful playoff / super playoff promotion season.
Frank had this to say on the signing of Liam smith:
“I watched a fair few of Tonbridge’s games last season - as part of my involvement with the ‘Back of the Net’ non league show production. Given Tonbridge’s impressive promotion-winning season, naturally they were featured quite often throughout the season - particularly the end when they beat Merstham in the Leagues playoff final and then winning the super playoff final at Met Police.
Liam was a key part of their side last year - a young player that in a lot of cases could have fell victim to other senior players being played ahead of him but to his compete credit, he made the position his with consistent performances. I was impressed with him every time I saw him play for Tonbridge - he’s as physical as you need to be, he has a good understanding of when the game needs to be slowed down a bit and most importantly - he defends the back post well. His time with us is subject to a few outcomes but he’s been with us for a few weeks now and he’s bedded in well and he will go into Saturdays squad for our league opener.”
Welcome to Merstham, Liam!
