Acquisition of Harvey Smith a sign to rivals

Former Bristol City under-18 captain and first-year professional Harvey Smith has joined Weston-super-Mare on a two-month loan deal.

Weston boss Marc McGregor moved swiftly to snap up the 18-year-old centre-half after Aden Baldwin returned to Ashton Gate when his loan spell came to an end, and Ben Seymour was recalled by Exeter City.

“Harvey has come in to fill the gap that will be left by Aden,” said McGregor.

“He impressed me in the 45 minutes against Rovers and in the under-23s games he has played for City, I have no doubt that
he will be a great addition to the squad.”
