Triumph Sign Veteran Attacker Don Smart
Greenville, SC - The Greenville Triumph Soccer Club has signed attacking talent Don Smart to a one-year contract with an option for 2022, pending league and federation approval. The long-time veteran joins the title-winning Greenville side after spending the 2019 and 2020 seasons with fellow League One club, Forward Madison FC.
Smart came to Forward Madison as their first-ever player signing in 2018, reuniting with Managing Director Peter Wilt, who was his General Manager with the Indy Eleven, as well as Sporting and Technical Director Daryl Shore, who was his assistant coach while playing for Miami FC 2. The Jamaican native appeared in 44 matches across two seasons with the Flamingos, scoring nine goals and adding eight assists.
Smart spent the 2018 season playing with Miami FC 2 in the National Premier Soccer League and made 17 appearances for the championship-winning side, scoring four goals and contributing seven assists. Prior to his lone season with Shore at Miami FC 2, Smart played three seasons with the NASL's Indy Eleven from 2014 to 2017, tallying 95 appearances for the now-USL Championship club, scoring 10 goals and recording 12 assists.
'I'm excited to start this new journey with the Greenville Triumph, and I'm looking forward to helping the team and the organization defend their championship title," said Smart.
Smart joins a group of 14 returning players for the Triumph following the club's season-end roster decisions announced last week.
