Former Wrexham midfielder Smith has been in sensational form for Anthony Limbrick’s men over their three Uefa Conference League fixtures so far. The 23-year-old has now scored in all five of his European appearances in two seasons at TNS.
Smith was brought to the club from Caernarfon Town by former boss Scott Ruscoe a year ago but, following on from a bright start, found life tougher at Park Hall towards the end of the term as TNS were pipped to the Cymru Premier title again.
Smith said: “I started off brilliantly last season, started a certain amount of games, but it was a disappointing end for me personally last season for different reasons.
“I just want to keep working hard and showing people that I should be playing.”
The midfielder credits new head coach Limbrick for injecting something new at Park Hall. He added: “He’s brought a different philosophy into the club, obviously with training and everything around it.
“It’s been a bit more professional, so it’s brilliant yes.”
