Driven midfielder Jonathan Smith was key to Town agreeing a £50,000 deal plus add-ons with York City for his services, according to manager Paul Buckle, writes Mark Wood.
The Town boss revealed he was the driving force behind the move as he signed an 18-month contract to keep him at Kenilworth Road until the summer of 2014.
Buckle said: “He pushed it. There’s only so much we can do. There’s only so much we can offer, there’s only so much we can do by ringing Gary Mills at York and the chairmen talking.
