Paul Smyth's Biography

The O’s announced the signing of Paul Smyth in June 2021, following the expiration of his contract at QPR.

The pacey forward was Kenny Jackett’s fourth new summer signing.

The 23-year-old began his career Lindfield before signing for The R’s in 2017. Whilst on the books at QPR, Smyth spent spells on loan at Accrington Stanley, Wycombe Wanderers and Charlton Athletic.

“I think he is a very good signing,” said Kenny Jackett. “At 23, there is potential for him to do very well for our Club. I’m delighted he has decided to sign for us.

“His main asset, I think is pace – I like him up front and I like him as a forward. He can score goals and I believe his pace and mobility will give defenders a lot of problems.”
