England C keeper incoming?

A usually reputable Twitter source has suggested that we’re on the verge of securing a deal for Boreham Wood keeper Grant Smith to replace the out going Paul Farman.

The former Hayes and Yeading keeper played 51 times for Boreham Wood as they just missed out on a spot in the Football League.

In 2017, the 24-year old represented his country against Slovakia after being a part of England C’s three-day training camp at Lilleshall, and was rewarded for his impressive performances with a full call up.

Smith has previously had spells with Reading and Fulham before signing a deal with Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion. Following that he moved to Bognor which is where Luke Garrard snapped him up from in July 2016.

The Imps are in the hunt for a keeper, amongst others, following the departure of long-serving stopper Paul Farman to Stevenage.
