Liam leaves on loan

29th August 2014

U20s captain Liam Smith completes loan move to League Two side East Fife.

Rising star Liam Smith has joined League Two outfit East Fife on loan until January 5th.

The Hearts U20s captain, who made his top team debut against Livingston last week, will link up with former Jambo Gary Naysmith's side to gain first-team experience.

Liam's stock has risen at Tynecastle following a successful year in the U20s, where he skippered the side to the final of last season's Scottish FA Youth Cup, and is highly thought of at the Hearts Football Academy.

Because of the nature of the loan move - a development temporary transfer - the right-back can also turn out for Jack Ross' U20s side as well as play at Methill.
