Adam Smith is a familiar name to most Non-League fans with appearances for teams such as Mansfield Town, Lincoln City, FC Halifax Town and Wrexham amongst others.
The winger also made appearances in the Football League with Chesterfield and Aldershot Town.
Currently with Alfreton Town of the National League North, Smith’s career came to a halt when he faced a legal battle at the start of 2017.
With the support of everyone at the club alongside his close friends, Smith continues to play for Alfreton and is looking to get his career back on track.
A number of clubs would have suspended or even released a player during their time of difficulty in court but Smith has said how he appreciates the support The Reds gave him.
When speaking to ElWriteBack, the former Lincoln City man said: “The club were really supportive and helped me through the tough time, everyone from management and players were great.
“Moving forward, I’d like to get fit and back playing again. It was really hard suffering a knee injury at the time of all the drama happening.”
Alfreton are currently 18th in the National League North with 40 points to their name. The Reds have two games remaining against Altrincham and Nuneaton Town to secure their safety.
Speaking about his side’s remaining games, Smith said: “We will stay positive and stick together but I am 100% sure we will be safe from relegation.
“I will be staying with Alfreton next season and hopefully I can pay them back with some good performances for standing by me.”
The 32-year-old also spoke about his future plans in the game: “I’d love to go into management! Football has been my life and I am blessed to have done something I love.”
