New Yeovil Town goalkeeper Grant Smith has said he is hoping to come “drive the team on” to success in the National League next season,

The stopper was confirmed on a one-year contract following his release by rivals Chesterfield at the end of last season.

Speaking to the club’s YouTube channel, the 27-year-old said: “For me personally, I want to get as many games as I can and hopefully stay fit for the whole season, and hopefully drive the team on.”

The keeper kept 10 clean sheets in 18 appearances for Chesterfield last season and is hoping to bring that confidence with him to Huish Park.

He added: “I am coming in with a positive mindset, I am really happy to be here and I just can’t wait to get going.

“I am a bit of everything. I like to be dominant from crosses, I like to think one of my strong points is my distribution as well as being able to save the ball.”

Smithis the third signing of the summer for boss Darren Sarll having brought in defender Morgan Williams and midfielder Charlie Wakefield.
