Ex-Millwall striker leaves League Two side with “heavy heart” – South London News

Ex-Millwall striker Matt Smith has said he will leave League Two side Salford with a “heavy heart”.

Smith has scored 44 goals in 119 appearances for the Ammies since joining from Millwall in January 2022.

He netted 25 goals this season for Salford as they finished 20th in League Two.

Smith turned out for Millwall 102 times in all competitions before leaving in January 2022.

His contract at the Peninsula Stadium expires this summer.

“My time at Salford City has come to an end,” said the 34-year-old.

“Whilst I write this with a heavy heart, I’ll always be so grateful to everyone at the club, none more so than you, the fans, for your incredible support over the last three years.

“I’m so sorry I couldn’t help us to achieve that promotion which was my ultimate aim when I signed. To come so close last season was a huge blow to me personally.

“Despite this, to leave as the club’s all-time leading scorer in the EFL, the third-highest scorer in the country right now, divisional team of the season, and your player of the year makes me very proud and it’s been an absolute joy to work with such a great group of coaches and players.

“A special thanks must go to the owners, especially Gary, Ryan, Nicky and Scholesy for their continued guidance.

“I’m going to take some time now to consider my next step, which includes opportunities away from playing.

“Until next time,

“Matt Smith.”

Everyone at the South London Press thanks you for your continued support.
