Jono Smith has confirmed he will be here for 2023. In what will be his seventh season at Crusaders, split over two spells, the former Barrow Raiders and Rochdale Hornets man is hoping to be able to help the club to promotion when the season starts on 19th February against Dewsbury.
Upon signing, Smith said: “I’m pleased to be back playing for Crusaders this year. There is a lot of potential in this squad that Carl has put together and I want to be involved in what will hopefully be a solid push for promotion. The fans are brilliant here and it’s a pleasure to represent them.”
Head Coach Carl Forster said about Smith: “It’s great to keep Jono on board. You know what you are getting with him and he’s a great leader to have in a relatively young squad. He’s won this league a few times and it's vital to have that experience in the team."
