'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Forest Sign Keeper.

Paul Smith today signed on the dotted line and became a Nottingham Forest player. The Southampton keeper became Colin Calderwood's first signing and signed for an undisclosed fee on a three year contract.

The 26 year old told the OS, he came here to further his career and to get regular first team football.

In a statement released by Stellar Group Limited, Smith said: 'When the opportunity arrived for me to play for such a prestigious club as Nottingham Forest and to learn from an excellent young manager such as Colin Calderwood, I knew I had to take it.

'There is a great set-up and everyone is determined to make a serious attempt at winning promotion this season.

'The club has been in League One long enough now and we need to get back to challenging for a place in the Premiership.

'I'm really looking forward to getting started and hopefully challenging for a first-team place.'

Smith joined the Saints from Brentford in January 2004 as understudy to Antti Niemi, but after a brief run in the first team following the Finn's departure found himself behind first-choice Bartosz Bialkowski, and then veteran Kevin Miller, in the pecking order at St Mary's.

Yeah, this was a complete surprise to me!!! He's a great keeper, saw him play a few times when he was at Brentford. Shame he never got his chance at Southampton, and not looking forward to coming up against him next season!
