The 6ft 1 Bermudan arrives at The Lane with an impressive record, something that Widdrington has been aware of over recent weeks.
"We have today agreed a deal to take Jonte Smith, a striker, on loan from Crawley Town for a month initially." said the Boro boss. "He is someone I've been aware of and in fact trying to bring to the club since before Christmas. He has been a regular in the first team squad after returning from a successful period whilst out on loan at Met Police where his goal scoring prowess came to prominence. We obviously thank the staff at Crawley Town and wish Jonte all the very best during his time at The Lane."
Welcome Jonte, we hope you enjoy your time with us here at Eastbourne Borough.
