Defender praises team-mates after friendly win
Tommy Smith praised Town’s performance following a 3-1 friendly win over West Ham at Portman Road this afternoon.
It marked the defender’s first appearance of pre-season for Blues, following his exploits in the Olympics with New Zealand, and Tommy was delighted to be reacquainted with his Town team-mates.
“It’s always nice to win games and play well, but it’s mainly about getting the fitness levels right in pre-season,” Tommy told the Club website.
“I think first-half especially we played some lovely football and at times it may have looked like we were the Premier League side to the fans.
“But it’s just great to be back in with the lads and getting to know the new boys in the squad too.
“I would have liked to have been around the squad throughout the whole pre-season, but playing for my country in the Olympics is something I’m very proud to have done.”
