The Club are delighted to confirm the signing of striker Harry Smith, who joins from Northampton Town in an undisclosed deal.

The 26-year-old forward is Kenny Jackett’s sixth new signing of the summer window, and he has penned a two-year deal, keeping him in E10 until 2023.

“As soon as I heard the interest from Leyton Orient and the Manager, I knew it was the place I wanted to play football.”

“I met with Kenny for a chat and straight away I knew the Club’s ambitions. That’s only one thing and that’s promotion. I’ve been involved in a couple and there’s no better feeling, so, hopefully this season we can achieve that!”

“I’m 6ft 5; evidentially I’m good in the air, but for someone my size I do have a bit of pace to get in behind defenders. If you get balls into the box, I’ll get on the end of them.”

“This season I want to help the team as much as I can. Our team objective, like I said, is to achieve promotion.

The striker started his career in non-league before making the move to Millwall in 2016 as a 21-year-old. Soon came a loan spell at Swindon Town, where Smith played alongside current O’s Keeper Lawrence Vigouroux.

Harry made a permanent switch to Macclesfield Town ahead of the 18/19 season and made 39 league appearances – notching nine goals. In the summer of 2019, he made the switch to Northampton Town and enjoyed a play-off final win in his first campaign, earning promotion to League One.
