Career[edit]

Macclesfield Town[edit]

Born in Wythenshawe, Manchester, Smart came from the youth system at Macclesfield Town and in 2005 he made it into the first team squad.[1] He stayed there for two-years making only nine appearances and not scoring. In 2007, he went out on loan to Northwich Victoria making 18 appearances scoring 1 goal. He was released on his return to Macclesfield.

Stalybridge Celtic[edit]

After his release from Macclesfield Town he joined Conference North side Stalybridge Celtic and he stayed there for two-years where he was more of a first team regular making almost 100 league appearances for them before his move to Hyde.[2]

He left Hyde during the summer of 2011 as part of a mass clear out at the club. He joined Trafford.FC, before signing for Altrincham in March 2012.[8] He rejoined Trafford for the start of the 2012-2013 season.
