Smith joins Ashfield on loan

Friday 11th January 2013

Queen’s Park have loaned out pacey front man Craig Smith to his former Junior side Ashfield after he dropped out of the starting line-up due to the emergence of Aidan Connolly and Lawrence Shankland.

Smith has been at the Hampden club since the summer of 2010 and has featured in nearly 70 games, however the 26 year old has not been involved since December 15 and all parties agreed that a loan deal was in the player’s best interests.

Head coach Gardner Speirs said: “Craig has been part of our club for nearly 3 years now but he is disappointed at not having played much football recently. We do not have the biggest of squads so we want him to remain here and a loan move keeps him match sharp and available for the run in to the season.”
