Jack Smith Player Profile
Debut: No debut
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 – meaning he was 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 senior management. And you wouldn’t have bet against seeing him feature in and around the first team squad over the months that were to follow.
