Former Hatters midfielder Jonathan Smith was quick to find new employment after leaving Luton this afternoon, heading to Town’s League Two rivals Stevenage.
The 30-year-old ended his almost five year stint at Kenilworth Road when his contract was cancelled by mutual consent and on arriving at Boro, he told the official website: “I am really excited to be here. It is a massive challenge for myself and I am just looking forward to helping the team now.
I had been at my previous club for a long time so it is a real challenge to get the best out of myself and help the team.Jonathan Smith
“The gaffer has been really good for me. He has chased me for a while so he sold it all to me to be honest.
“I had been at my previous club for a long time so it is a real challenge to get the best out of myself and help the team.
“He has got so much passion, he really wants to do well for the club and I felt that when I met him.”
Smith joins up with the likes of Ronnie Henry, Luke Wilkinson and Fraser Franks, as he added: “There are a few lads I know in there but to be fair, I did my first session this morning and everyone was really welcoming and really friendly.
“They do seem a good set of lads so I am looking forward to adding that and helping them out.
“I have played a couple of pre-season games and I like to see myself as quite naturally fit.
“I am desperate to get out there and play. It is my life, football. Being out on the pitch is what I live for so I have been keeping myself as fit as I possibly can.”
