Scottish striker becomes sixth Morecambe summer signing

Scottish striker Cammy Smith has become the sixth Morecambe FC summer signing.

The forward arrives at the Mazuma Mobile Stadium from Partick Thistle, joining on a one year deal, and is the Shrimps’ third arrival of the day, after the announcements of midfielder Yann Songo’o and goalkeeper Stuart Moore.

27-year-old Smith started his football journey in Aberdeen’s academy where he would breakthrough in to the first team in 2012 under former Scotland Manager Craig Brown. In the 2013-14 season Cammy was part of the Aberdeen side to win the League Cup that season after a penalty shootout win over Inverness Caledonian Thistle. In his time with The Dons, he would make 89 appearances in the Granite City.

During the 2016-17 season Cammy has two loan spells, firstly with Dundee United before joining St Mirren. At the end of the 16-17 season, he would join the Paisley side on a permanent basis. As St Mirren won the Scottish Championship in 2017-18 and clinched promotion back to the topflight of Scottish Football, Smith was named the clubs Player of the Year.

Smith would then return to Dundee United before spells with Dundalk, Ayr United and Indy Eleven in the USA. Most recently Smith was part of the Patrick Thistle side that narrowly missed out on promotion to the Scottish Premiership in the play-off at the end of last season.

On bringing Smith to Morecambe, Derek Adams said: “Cammy is somebody with good experience for his age. He has been part of promotions and success, and to have those credentials are important at any club.”

“Coming through at Aberdeen, Cammy was very highly regarded and clearly has talent. No player is ever the finished article, and we look forward to bringing even more of his talent out whilst he is with us.”

Cammy said on joining the Shrimps: “This is obviously something different for me. It’s my first taste of English Football but I am excited. It’s a good challenge for me at a good time.”

“I want to come here and show what I can do as well as being part of a team that wants to deliver on the pitch, and I can’t wait to get in to competitive action.’’
