Smith skippered the Minstermen to four wins and two draws from their final six matches as the club retained their Football League status.

The 31-year-old played a key role in York's successful relegation battle, including a stoppage-time goalline clearance in their last home game to ensure a 2-1 victory over Southend and scoring the game's only goal in their 1-0 win at Dagenham & Redbridge on the final day.

The former Reading, Tamworth and Mansfield defender, who made 50 appearances for York this season, scoring four goals, signed a new one-year deal with the club earlier in the week.
