Defender joins Peterborough

Michael Smith has today left Bristol Rovers.

The defender, who was twice voted Rovers’ Player of the Year, has joined League One club Peterborough on a three year deal.

Chairman Nick Higgs said: “It is with great regret that we have to let Michael go.

“However, we held on to get the best deal we could from Peterborough, and negotiated a six figure fee, which will remain undisclosed, as well as a number of further conditions.

“Michael has been a great servant to the club, and we wish him success for the rest of his career.”

Michael joined Bristol Rovers in the summer of 2011 and made his Rovers league debut on the opening day of the 2011/12 season.

He scored his first senior goal for the club in a 2012/13 Capital One cup tie, against Ipswich, at Portman Road.

Manager Darrell Clarke said: “We would like thank Michael for all of his efforts during his time at the club.

“He is a fantastic professional and we wish him every success in the future.”

Everyone at Bristol Rovers would like to echo Darrell’s sentiments and wish Michael well.
