It proved to be a good move for Smith, for after making his debut in the same month against Norwich City, he was to stay at St James’ Park for four seasons.

Smith moved to Barnstaple Town in July 1952, but then got another Football League opportunity when signing for Carlisle United a month later, where he scored 8 goals in 31 appearances in two seasons with the club.

After leaving Carlisle, Smith signed for North Shields.

Archie died on May 16th 1995.
