Yeovil Town are pleased to announce the signing of striker Jay (A.J) Leitch-Smith on a two-year contract.

Jay started his footballing career at Crewe Alexandra at the age of six in the club’s Youth Academy. He signed a full time contract with Crewe in 2008 and was contracted to the club until the end of last season.

24-year-old Jay is a 5’11” striker described by his former club as a clever and tricky forward with an eye for goal. Often credited for his poaching, composure and finishing ability, Jay likes to play off the shoulder of defenders.

Jay made 103 appearances for The Railwaymen scoring 19 goals. He also had loan spells at Halifax, Newcastle Town, IBV in Iceland and Curzon Ashton.

Manager Gary Johnson said: "I am very happy to have secured the services of AJ. He has been on lots of clubs radars and I am delighted he has decided to join us here at Yeovil Town."
