From playing locally for Denmead at the start of his career, Sam soon bagged a move to Portsmouth where he turned out for their Community Development side.

The pacey winger had his first taste of senior football with Wessex League outfit Horndean in 2015/16, before he was then snapped up by Basingstoke Town – where he came up against Spencer Day’s Farnborough on numerous occasions.

Come the end of the 2017/18 season, Smart had 20 goals in 41 appearances to his name in The Southern League Premier South. This attracted the attention of former Manager Jason Bristow, who helped Sam sign for National League Eastleigh.

Across two seasons, he made 97 appearances for Eastleigh and found the net twice before his release at the end of the 2021/22 season.

He has experience in Non-League’s top flight with FC Halifax Town and Dagenham & Redbridge, before he spent time in The Vanarama National League North with Brackley Town, Buxton and Boston United.

Sam was a part of Boston United’s successful 2023/24 campaign; winning away at Alfreton Town (on penalties), Scunthorpe United (on penalties) and then Brackley Town in the Play-Off Final to secure promotion to The National League.

Smart sealed a move to the Saunders Transport Community Stadium in June 2024.
