Stevenage have signed midfielder Jimmy Smith following his departure from Leyton Orient.

The 26-year-old arrives at The Lamex Stadium after four years with Stevenage's League One rivals, a spell which saw the former Chelsea youngster make nearly 200 appearances.

He told the club's official website: "I know a number of the lads already such as Ben Chorley from Orient and Filipe Morais and Anthony Grant from my Chelsea days and they only had good things to say about the club, so it was an easy decision to make.

"The training ground is amazing, right up there with some Championship and even Premier League facilities and I can't wait for the new season."
