The Club confirmed the signing of former Luton Town striker Craig Mackail-Smith on Thursday 17th August. The 33 year old has signed a one year deal after being released by The Hatters in the summer.

He has clocked up over 500 senior appearances in a career stretching back to his time with then Isthmian League St Albans City. His most prolific spell came at Peterborough United where he scored 99 goals in 212 First Team appearances.

Gareth Ainsworth commented:

Craig could be the final piece in the jigsaw for us and Im over the moon to bring him here because hes got talent and a pedigree which are above this level, and Ive no doubt he will strengthen the options we have in our frontline.

His goalscoring record speaks for itself but hes also got an unbelievable work ethic and will run through brick walls for the team. All the reports Ive had, from other managers and from lads in our changing room who have played with Craig previously, say hes a top, top professional who will bring extra pace, quality and goals to the attack.

I always said I didnt want to make too many changes in personnel over the summer because we already had the core of a really strong squad, but to bring in Adam El-Abd, Nathan Tyson, Jack Williams and now Craig shows that we value quality over quantity and Im really excited to see what this squad can now achieve over the coming months.

He has been allocated number 25 in the Wanderers squad.
