Christian Smith signs for Airbus
Airbus UK Broughton have completed the signing of former Wrexham and Chester midfielder Christian Smith and subject to International clearance, Smith will make his debut against Prestatyn Town on Saturday.
The 25-year-old joins the Wingmakers from Nantwich Town after spending last season at Chester, making 31 appearances and scoring six goals.
A former Port Vale youth team player, Smith made his Football League debut with the Potteries outfit before spending time on-loan at Cambridge United and Northwich Victoria.
He then spent a season in Scotland with League Two Clyde, before signing for Wrexham in August 2008.
After rejecting a new contract with the Dragons, he signed for York City on a short-term contract until the end of the 2008/9 season, scoring on his debut against Lewes.
Released at the end of that campaign, Smith's next move was back to Wrexham and made 36 appearances which yielded six goals, also playing once during a loan spell with Conference rivals Newport County.
Further loan spells followed at Barrow and Tamworth where he scored in his final appearance, a 2–1 victory over Forest Green Rovers that ensured the Lambs' survival from relegation.
Released by Wrexham, he joined Chester as a member of the squad that stormed to the league title in 2011/12.
