Lowestoft Town legend Adam Smith to retire

After making more than 400 appearances over the past decade for the club, Lowestoft Town legend Adam Smith has announced that this weekend’s game against Bedworth United will be his last.

The left back, who first signed for Lowestoft back in 2009 and his since gone on to become a hero of the terraces at Crown Meadow, will hang up his boots at the end of this current season.

The 33-year-old told the club’s official website, “I am going to miss football massively – if circumstances were any different I am sure I would have carried on.”

Smith added, “I do enjoy my football and I still feel like I have something to offer as I really enjoy playing, training and being round the lads. But I have to put my family first. Family is the most important thing in my life. I signed a two year deal at start of season, but the situation with my daughter and her additional needs it is tough for my wife with me being away from home the majority of time.”

Lowestoft are currently sitting in 16th place in the Southern League Central division, a comfortable 13 points clear of the relegation zone.
