Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lionel Smith was an English footballer. Born in Mexborough, Yorkshire, Smith played for local non-league sides before signing as an amateur with London club Arsenal F.C. in April 1939. He turned professional that summer, only for World War II to break out; Smith joined the Royal Engineers and served as a sapper, but also played in some wartime matches for Arsenal. An injury incurred in a crane accident threatened to disrupt his career, but when first-class football resumed in 1946-47, Smith had made a full recovery, and was made captain of the Gunners' reserve side.
