BEES: Smith will be a big hit at Bridport
6:30am Friday 30th August 2013 in Sport
TREVOR Senior is confident Steve Smith will prove a big hit at St Mary’s Field during his loan stay.
The Wimborne Town forward has joined the Bees for a month and already the Bridport boss is eyeing a possible extension.
Smith scored on his debut in Saturday’s 2-1 win at Bitton and he is someone the club has been tracking for a long time.
Senior said: “We managed to get Steve in last week and I am delighted to have him on board.
“He scored a lot of goals for Poole Town a few years back and he is someone I have been keeping my eye on for a while. He is also really good mates with Jamie and Sam Filkins.
“We have initially got him for a month but I am hoping I might be able to keep him a bit longer.”
Senior is waiting to find out whether Smith will be available for tomorrow’s FA Cup tie at home to Merthyr Town (3pm).
A big crowd is expected at St Mary’s Field for the preliminary round clash with £1,925 on offer for the winners as well as a place in the draw for first-round qualifying.
And Senior knows that his team can’t afford to turn in a performance like the one they gave against Buckland Athlteic on Tuesday night if they want to progress in the competition.
Jamie Micklewhite’s first-minute goal was enough to give Buckland the three points.
Senior said: “If we play like that against Merthyr in the cup on Saturday we could be looking at a cricket score.”
