Skrill Premier club Dartford have signed defender Connor Essam from Sky Bet League One side Crawley Town and….
….experienced goalkeeper Phil Smith from League Two side Portsmouth on a month’s loan.
Twenty-one-year-old Essam signed the paperwork today and is available for the Darts` home game against Gateshead tomorrow.
Essam has made a dozen appearances for Reds since joining the club in January but the form of our other central defenders has restricted him to just one start in the current campaign.
He has had previous experience of Conference football with loan spells at Luton Town and Dover Athletic.
Smith joined Pompey as a free agent in December 2012, having been without a club since leaving Swindon the previous summer.
The goalkeeper made a total of 132 appearances during his six years with the Robins after arriving from Crawley in 2006.
A former England `C` keeper, he has also had spells with Millwall, Folkestone Invicta, Margate and Dover.
