Beadle Signs Smith From Evesham

Lance Smith And Joel Edwards At Edgar Street Last January
Hereford FC manager Peter Beadle has signed striker Lance Smith who played for Evesham last season.

"Lance gives us something different to what we have," Beadle told the OS.

"He’s got a good record and he’s keen to take the opportunity.” 

25 year old Smith has been a target of several clubs recently.

Redditch made an approach last January but Smith decided to stay with Evesham. Earlier in the season he rejected a move to Hednesford.

Smith scored 26 goals including four penalties in the Southern League South and West last season. However, his talley might have been higher had he not missed several games near the end of the season because of ankle injuries.

Later Evesham FC tweeted: 'Best luck at your new club. Great shame you are leaving but cannot blame you moving up to the next level. See you at Jubilee as a spectator.'
