The former Ipswich Town player leaves The Walks by mutual consent as manager Ian Culverhouse continues his summer overhaul ahead of the new National League campaign.

Smith, 23, joined Lynn in July 2019, following his release from Ipswich, where he had spent most of his career.

He made 20 appearances in his first season as he helped Lynn win promotion from National League North
He was released by Ipswich at the end of the 2018–19 season and went on  to make 20 appearance for the Linnets in 2019-20 and a further 27 starts last season.
