Tom Smith has joined National League South side Welling United on loan for the 2021/22 season.
The 19 year-old goalkeeper, who signed his first professional contract with us in December 2019, has been a key figure in our development teams in recent seasons, playing an important role in our Under-18s title-winning 2018/19 campaign, keeping five clean sheets from his eight appearances.
The Arsenal Academy graduate, who made four appearances for the Under-23s in Premier League 2 last season, has also gained experience in previous loan spells with Salisbury City in the Southern League Premier Division and Dover Athletic in the National League.
Everyone at the Club wishes Tom well during his time with Welling United.
The loan is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
