Shamrock Rovers confirm the signing of Scotland U21 International Cameron King to the first team squad.
Speaking about the signings Stephen Bradley said:
“I was made aware of Cameron about six weeks ago and advised that I should take a serious look at him. Sometimes you get players in and they’re not what people say they are. Cameron was and he’s definitely going to be an attacking threat for us. We got him initially for just two or three days and straight away we liked what we saw. He’s very direct, very clever on the ball. He can play any attacking position, right, left or as a 10. We have him until the end of the season so hopefully he can show that quality. He has good character, he’s hungry to get his career back on track and hopefully this is the place for him. I see him being a good player for us between now and the end of the season and making a real impact.”
Cameron was in the stands in Tallaght to watch Rovers’ FAI Cup win over Glenville on Friday night and told us that he can’t wait to get going at the club. To hear the first interview with Rovers’ new signing click here
Cameron (21) joined Norwich City at the age of eight. He played in the final of the 2013 FA Youth Cup which Norwich won for the first time in 30 years. Cameron made his senior debut in September 2014 in a League Cup tie away to Shrewsbury Town. Two months later, the English-born midfielder made his first appearance for the Scotland Under 21s, scoring a late equaliser in Switzerland. Cameron saw his decade with the Canaries come to an end in the summer of 2016 when he and Norwich mutually agreed to terminate his contract. He looked to kick start his career by signing for his hometown club Thetford Town in the Eastern Counties Premier Division.
