Smith is a versatile defender who can play at right-back or at centre-back. Tommy is another product of the Manchester City youth system having joined them in the 2003/04 season after four years at Tranmere Rovers.
Smith made excellent progress in the youth system at City, eventually playing in the Elite Development squad, but never managed to make an appearance for the First Team.
The defender had trials at Oxford United in the summer of 2012 before joining Town, where he played the majority of the Under-21 games during his debut season.
Smith made his league debut in November 2013 in Town’s 2-1 victory at Sheffield Wednesday. The defender took to the Championship superbly and went on to make 27 appearances for Town that season.
In the following season the 6ft 1 defender became Town’s first choice right-back and went onto to make 41 league appearances.
