South Park FC are pleased to announce that prolific marksman Chris Smith has returned to club. With nearly 300 appearances and just shy of 200 goals Chris departed for Ryman Premier side Burgess Hill FC in the summer of 2015. Chris had a good first season at Burgess Hill finishing top goal scorer with 16 goals. Chris said “I really enjoyed my time at Burgess Hill FC and would like to thank the players, management and supporters, I feel now is the right time to return to South Park FC and work with the rest of the players and management as the club look to continue to push forward”.
Manager Malcolm Porter echoed Chris’s comments “We are delighted to have Chris back at the club, he is a proven goal scorer and will be returning to us a better player after having played for 18 months in Ryman Premier. We have been working hard to develop and improve our squad since Chris left and amid an understandable stream of interest in Chris’s signature from other clubs, the quality and strength of our squad was no doubt one of the main reasons Skinny decided to come home”.
