Wingate & Finchley have snapped up the signature of young forward Liam Smyth ahead of the upcoming 2021/22 Isthmian Premier Division season. 

Smyth, 19, who has featured for Northern Ireland under-19s will now be looking to make his mark with the Blues. 

Smyth most recently appeared for Braintree Town in the National League South and is a product of the Stevenage FC academy. 

Manager Marc Weatherstone said: “Liam had a few clubs after him this summer, but we are happy to get this over the line. He is young, hungry and can finish well, so I’m sure Liam will be a big addition to our squad.” 

Wingate suffered a 3-1 defeat to Barking in pre-season on Saturday and were due to face Hullbridge Sports on Tuesday evening.
