Former Invicta striker Smith signs on at Hornchurch

Hornchurch have signed former Folkestone Invicta striker David Smith on a three month loan from National League Bromley, where he moved earlier this summer.

David was in fabulous form for Invicta last season, scoring thirty five goals in his sixty appearances, the last of those in the Kent Senior Cup Final against Dartford in May. He managed six goals in twelve games during the very short 20-21 campaign, too, after joining from Ashford United.

David had a scintillating season for the Nuts and Bolts, with twenty three goals in forty one appearances- including a four goal haul in one match at Three Bridges.

He moved to Ashford from Dover Athletic, where he didn't really get much of a chance to shine. He moved to the town of traffic jams after breaking through at Sittingbourne, and did spent a second spell with the Brickies on loan from Athletic. He came through the Academy at Maidstone United.
