Folkestone Invicta striker to be on trial with Millwall

FOLKSTONE Invicta striker Harry Smith is set to trial with Millwall from July 1.

The 21-year-old forward is being tracked by a clutch of Football League clubs, with the Lions' League One rivals Gillingham and AFC Wimbledon reportedly interested in the non-league man.

Smith has already trained with the Kent side and played in a development game.

And the striker will be spending the first couple of weeks of pre-season with Millwall when the team report back at the start of next month.

Smith told Kent Online: "I’m in from July 1 with Millwall. When I was up in Aberdeen, there was talk of Millwall then but nothing materialised.

"I was with Gillingham towards the back-end of the season and played a game for them but I was only on for 15 minutes and tore my hip flexor. I broke my hand a week later so it was a bit of a nightmare.

"They seemed quite keen but then I suffered the injury so that went a bit stale. I’m not sure if that will pick up when the season comes again.

"Millwall’s a good opportunity and I’ve had a few calls from my agent about other clubs in the League like AFC Wimbledon, who have just come up. That’s a nice opportunity there but we’ll just focus on Millwall.

"I’ll definitely be in with them for a couple of weeks so we’ll see how that one goes."
