Club career

Smyth started his career with Preston North End where he was a former captain of Preston's youth side and was a regular at reserve team level in 2009, the same year as he was handed his first professional contract. He was formerly a striker at Preston but converted to a defender whilst at the club.[2]

In June 2010 he signed for League two club Accrington Stanley on a 1-year contract. He made his debut on 31 August 2010 in a Football League Trophy match against Tranmere Rovers coming on as a 13th-minute substitute.[3]

In December 2010 he joined Conference North side Workington A.F.C. on loan.[4] He made his debut for Workington on 11 December in a league match against Stafford Rangers[5] but bad weather saw further games postponed. It was reported that he had returned to Accrington on 24 December[6] but his loan was later extended.[7]

It was announced by Accrington on 23 May that he would be released at the end of June 2011 when his current contract expired.[8]

In October 2011 he re-joined Northwich Victoria for his second spell at the club.[9] In May 2012 he moved to Colwyn Bay.[10]

In summer 2014 he joined Chorley.[11]
