Smith makes debut for Cheltenham

  • Jonté Smith

Jonté Smith made his debut in Cheltenham Town’s 4-2 victory over Stevenage in the Sky Bet league Two yesterday.

Smith, who has signed for the club until January, replaced forward Luke Varney in the 93rd minute of the match.

Danny Newton equalised twice for Stevenage to cancel out goals from Gavin Reilly and Sean Long. However, Ryan Broom’s strike made it 3-2 ten minutes from the end and substitute Alex Addai rounded off the scoring in time added on.

Smith has been with Cheltenham since pre-season, featuring in a friendly against the Burnley under-23 side. The 25-year-old made himself unavailable for Bermuda’s opening Concacaf Nations League home and away fixtures against Panama in League A, group B, as the final details of his deal at Cheltenham were being sorted out.

Cheltenham are sixth in the table with 11 points after seven games.
