Date of birth








Experienced midfielder Jimmy Smith signed on loan from Crawley Town until January.

With over 400 EFL appearances to his name, the Reds' club captain arrives in Somerset to bolster the Glovers' options in the middle of the park.

Able to operate across midfield - and with a keen eye for goal - Smith has made 169 appearances for Crawley whilst wearing the captain's armband in the majority of those outings.

From good pedigree having come through Chelsea's academy, the Londoner made his Blues debut in the Premier League after being introduced by Jose Mourinho away at Newcastle United in 2006.

Loans in the Championship with QPR, Norwich and Sheffield Wednesday followed prior to a four-year stay across the capital at Leyton Orient.

SwiftLy snapped up by Stevenage in the summer of 2013 - where he first met Darren Sarll - Smith wore the captain's armband on a number of occasions as he made 47 appearances. 

A one-season stay in Hertfordshire was followed by a move to join the Reds where he later scored a career-best 10 goals in 2017/18, prior to having his form halted early last season after suffering a knee injury that ruled him out for the majority of the campaign. 

After a season on loan which saw him become a fans favourite, Jimmy signed permanently in August 2020.
