Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division South club Hendon have signed midfielder Jacob Gardiner-Smith.

Gardiner-Smith is a 21-year-old who joins the Greens from Vanarama National League South neighbours St Albans City.

He signed for the Saints at the end of September 2018 following a two-year spell with Russian giants Zenit St Petersburg.

Gardiner-Smith, son of a Labour MP, never played professionally in the UK, although he did attend various soccer academy programmes and train with Arsenal, Watford and Reading when he was younger.

His break came in Russia as a 17-year-old following a tip off from an agent.

He had a successful time with Zenit`s highly-rated under-21 side before returning to England when his contract expired.
