Bath City manager Adie Britton believes new signing Dan Smith will be a bright player for the future.

The 22-year-old midfielder joined the Blue Square Bet Premier club on non-contract terms on Tuesday and made his debut in their 1-0 defeat by Gateshead.

He had been a free agent since January following his release from Truro City.

Britton pleased with Smith debut

"When he came on he looked bright," Britton told BBC Radio Bristol. "He's a threat and is an interesting one for the future.

"Dan's played little football recently but he's got pace and strength.

"He can play in numerous positions and balance us out on the left-hand side."

Smith came through Plymouth's academy and made his debut for the then Championship club in 2008.

He signed a permanent deal at Eastbourne a year later, following a successful loan spell, before joining Truro in 2010.

"I'm really pleased to be here at Bath City and I hope I can help the team get a few more wins and make it to safety," Smith told the club website.
