Addicks striker Smith signs on loan for the U's
COLCHESTER United have completed the loan signing of Charlton Athletic striker Michael Smith.
The front man has joined for an initial month-long period, up until April 6.
He has been part of the Addicks’ successful under-21s side this season, with the London side currently top of the U’s division.
Smith, who started his league career with Darlington, has also been out on loan at Accrington Stanley and also Newport County.
He made his first-team debut for Charlton earlier this season, playing in the Capital One Cup game against Leyton Orient.
Smith is the U's second loan signing in as many days, with striker Troy Hewitt having joined from QPR yesterday.
