Having signed four short term contracts in his brief time at the Wellington Phoenix, signing a one year deal for next season's A-League football competition has finally given Alex Smith some security.

Having signed a one year contract after making 24 appearance for the club, the English born Smith hopes to fill the midfield void left by the retirement of Tim Brown.

Coach Ricki Herbert used Smith in a variety of positions last season but Smith hopes next season he'll be allowed to settle in one position.
