Jack Smith Player Profile
Debut: Barrow (A, 1-1), 12/09/2020
Young centre half Jack Smith gained his first-ever first team matchday experience after being named on the bench for our 2019-20 season opener. To be fair to the U18 team regular, he’d already been name-checked by boss Dino Maamria; his name coming up in a Comet interview as one to watch in November 2018. Still, his chance might’ve been a little quicker in coming around than he may have first thought.
In truth, it seems Boro’ had a bit of an injury crisis at the start of the 2019-20 campaign. It meant he was perhaps making up the numbers on the bench on that occasion. Yet, it can still be taken as a sign of the regard in which he was held by the club’s management. And you wouldn’t bet against seeing him again; very much a part of the first team squad under Alex Revell going into the 2020-1 season.
