Phil Anthony Smith (born December 14, 1979 in Harrow, Greater London) is an English professional footballer for Swindon Town. Smith is a goalkeeper and wears shirt No.26. Smith is currently the longest serving player in the Swindon Town squad, having served the club since 2006.

Smith started his career with Millwall before being released and falling into non-league football, initially with Folkestone Invicta. This was followed by spells at Dover Athletic and Margate. Smith went on to play for Crawley Town where he was regular first choice goalkeeper for the Red Devils.

Crawley went into administration in 2006 and subsequently made all of their players available for transfer. Smith signed for Swindon after a successful pre-season trial which included winning the Copa Ibiza friendly competition in the Summer of 2006. Smith move to Swindon was partly helped by then Swindon manager Dennis Wise knowing Smith from his spell at Millwall when Wise was first team manager.
