LEXINGTON, Ky. – Lexington SC today announced the signing of midfielder Don Smart, pending federation and league approval.
Originally from Kingston, Jamaica, the 35-year-old brings a wealth of professional experience to Lexington SC’s inaugural season squad, including several seasons spent in the USL ecosystem.
His professional debut came in 2011 with F.C. New York, and he followed with productive stints at Fredericksburg Hotspur of the USL Premier Development League and RVA Football Club of the National Premier Soccer League.
In 2014, Smart was signed to Indy Eleven’s inaugural season roster, and he spent three years in the Circle City making 95 appearances and scoring 10 goals.
Smart helped make more history in 2018 when Forward Madison FC unveiled him as the club’s first-ever professional signing. He scored nine goals in 43 matches with the Flamingos before moving to fellow USL League One side Greenville Triumph SC, where he contributed three goals in 49 matches over the last two seasons.
“It’s a pleasure to sign with Lexington SC,” Smart said. “It means a lot to be a part of history. My goal is to win the championship and do whatever I can to achieve that.”
“Don will be a wonderful leader and character to have in our locker room,” said LSC Head Coach Sam Stockley. “He’s been around the game a long time and is a true professional with USL experience. He’s a very clever player on the pitch with an excellent awareness and versatility in midfield.”
