Using old Smart Keyboard with 2018 iPad Pro

Does anyone know if it’s at all possible to use the previous Smart Keyboard with the newest iPads Pro?
I know they’ve moved the Smart Connector, so I realise this might be a bit “hacky”, but I’m already being unorthodox in using my husband’s abandoned 9.7” Smart Keyboard for occasional use with my original 12.9” iPad Pro.

Unfortunately it hasn’t worked in my experiments.

Thanks @RosemaryOrchard
