|*Club domestic league appearances and goals|
Smith was born in Higham, Kent and initially played for a number of lower league sides (Vanbrugh Park, Crawford United, Metrogas) as well as playing for an Army side, before making it into the top flight of football with Huddersfield Town. He played at right half and transferred to Spurs on 19 August 1921. During his time at the club he made 319 appearances and scored ten goals in all competitions. The highlight of his Spurs career was collecting a winners' medal in the 1921 FA Cup Final. He also took part in a number of fiercely fought matches with local rivals Arsenal. In the match in September 1922 a major fracas broke out after a Spurs goal.
The reporter from The Sunday Evening Telegram recorded that:
"After the Spurs goal came the most disgraceful scene I have witnessed on any ground at any time. Players pulled the referee, blows with fists were exchanged, and all the dignity that appertains in the referee was rudely trampled on." In the aftermath, following a Commission of Inquiry, Tottenham's Bert Smith was found to have used "filthy language" and suspended for a month. Arsenal's Alex Graham was censured for retaliating instead of reporting matters to the ref, and Stephen Dunn (Arsenal's goalkeeper) for his conduct after Tottenham's goal was allowed to stand."
Smith finished his career at Spurs in May 1931 when he joined Northfleet United F.C. a club affiliated with Tottenham, as a coach. In later years he went on to be coach/trainer at Young Boys in Switzerland, Harwich and Parkeston, Hitchin and Stevenage Borough.
