Mackail-Smith spent two seasons with the Hatters, scoring five goals in 40 games, before heading back to the Posh, and then to Wycombe.

He had loan stints with Notts County and Stevenage, released by Chairboys boss Gareth Ainsworth in the summer and heading to the New Eyrie today.

Writing on Instagram, Mackail-Smith said: "I’ve absolutely loved my career in football. I’ve been to many clubs, learnt new things, won many awards, made lifelong friends, celebrated well and commiserated a few times too!

"My family, the fans and my passion for football have always been there for me and I’m sure they will all be with me on my new journey!

"I have signed for Bedford Town football club as it makes perfect sense for me to still be very much part of a team, see more of my family and to be able to work on many other ventures I want YOU to be a part of.

"I will still give every game 100% and I would love for you to join in our journey (we are allowed limited number of crowds at games) and be part of something special with hopefully many awards, achievements and promotions along the way. Exciting times ahead."
