Smith scored twice for Jersey Scottish, who he was originally signed to, in a 4-2 victory in the first round of the Charity Cup at the IJB.Having signed for Scottish, trained with Trinity then returned to Scottish, the focus was on Smith to prove a point.Ross Crick also bagged a double while a Craig Ferey own goal and a Darren Swanson penalty late on accounted for Trinity’s strikes.Scottish manager Bob Kearsey said: ‘I must admit I was surprised he came back.

I had a phone call out of the blue on Monday and he asked if it was too late to come back.

I told him as far as I was concerned he was still a Jersey Scottish player and that was it.’He played really well up front last night.

Whether he had a point to prove I don’t know but he took his goals really well.’Trinity boss Joe Morley said: ‘Jersey Scottish were by far the better team, we didn’t deserve anything out of the game.

But we’re fine about it – we gave some of the players who have been working hard in training a run-out.’Scottish will face Grouville in the second round at the IJB next Wednesday after the parish side beat Portuguese Club 1-0 at Le Boulivot last night.Substitute Richard Russell came on to score with his first touch, a header, while Craig Northedge was dismissed for two yellow cards.
