Profile

Winger Jonny Smith joined AFC Fylde on a six-month loan deal from Championship side Bristol City in August.

Dubbed the ‘new Gareth Bale’ as he burst onto the scene in Wales with Wrexham, the 20-year-old extended his loan deal until the end of the season after impressing and had seven goals by the end of January.

Smith signed on at the Racecourse ground as a 10-year-old, progressing through the ranks and made his first team debut for the Welsh side at just 16.

His promising displays in the National League earned him a move to Bristol City last summer and enjoyed a loan spell in League Two with Cheltenham towards the end of last season.
