Kane Smith joined the Wood on a two-year deal from Hitchin Town in July 2017.
The 21-year-old right-back is known for his pace and powerful delivery and made 120 senior appearances over two seasons for Hitchin.
In just two-years, Kane scored an impressive 11 goals and provided 30 assists from defence, while also helping to keep 38 clean sheets.
These stats led to trials with Premier League side Crystal Palace and League One outfits Shrewsbury Town & Coventry City.
Smith won both Players’ Player & Supporters’ Player of the Year for Hitchin in 2016 and proved to be a key member of Luke Garrard’s squad in his first season at National League level, helping the club to reach the play-offs.
However, he suffered a serious knee injury in the play-offs, during the match against AFC Fylde, which ruled him out of the 2018/19 campaign.
His rehabilitation so far has been positive and the Wood Army will look forward to seeing him take to the field once again, next season.
