He was captain of Walsall reserve team during the 2006–07 season. He was on the verge of the first team during this very season, however the management at Walsall believed that he lacked that competitive match experience which was needed to become a first-team regular.
He was allowed to link up with Southern Football League Premier Division side, Halesowen Town on loan. During his short time at the club Smith made five league appearances for the Birmingham-based outfit before returning to Bescot Stadium, to make his professional debut on 7 April 2007 in Walsall's Football League Two clash with Torquay United. The centre half came on as a 70th-minute substitute in this game replacing Craig Pead.
Smith started the 2007–08 campaign in high spirit after making his debut in the previous season, the he had also just signed another contract with the club in May 2007, meaning he would remain at the Bescot Stadium until May 2008.
This would prove to be a difficult season for him, especially if he wanted to climb back up the ladder and break back into the first-team. However, during the start of the season he failed to do so spending a lot of time playing in the reserve side. February 2008, turned out to be a big month him following the sale of defensive colleague Scott Dann, who joined Coventry City towards the very end of the January transfer window.
He signed a new two-year contract with the club on 10 May 2010.
In February 2012, Manny was disciplined by the club for his offensive tweet to a lifelong supporter.
O 9 July 2012, Smith signed a two-year deal with League One side Notts County. He played his first competitive game for the club in a League Cup match against Bradford City. However he was stretchered off in the first half after twisting his knee in a challenge with Alan Connell, it was later confirmed by Keith Curle that Smith would be out for 3 months
On 5 August 2014, he signed with Conference Premier side Wrexham. The 25-year-old centre-back joined the Dragons on a one-year deal after impressing on trial. Manny Smith played in every minute of Wrexham's 61 league and cup games with 1 goal, the opening goal in the 3-1 win over Maidstone in the FA Cup 2nd round, in the 2014-15 season as his brilliant performances in the heart of Wrexham's defence earned him the adoration of the Wrexham fans and the club's Player of the Season award.
Smith signed a new one-year deal with Wrexham after the 2014-15 season, keeping him at the Red Dragons for the 2015-16 season. He played in his 100th career appearance for Wrexham, as the beat Cross-border rivals Chester, 3-0 at the Racecourse.
