Biography

Signing from Dyce Boys Club, Cammy Smith came through the Aberdeen youth system to make his first team debut in April 2012 at the age of just 16, coming on as a substitute against Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

He went on to score his first senior goal at the start of the following season, with a header in a 1-1 draw at Inverness CT in September 2012. Over the next two seasons he appeared regularly for the first team, mainly as a substitute, and came off the bench early on during the Dons' League Cup final victory in March 2014, collecting his first winners' medal.

Primarily a striker but also able to play in midfield, the 2014/15 season saw Cammy juggle first team with regular Under 20 action, and he was instrumental in helping the U20s win the Development League. He also won the club's Young Player of the Year award that season, and is regarded as one of the brightest prospects ever produced by the club, and has represented Scotland at U16, U17 and U19 level.

By the end of the 2015/16 season, Cammy was closing in on making 100 appearances for Aberdeen. However, with most of these being as a substitute, he agreed to a year long loan move to United for the 2016/17 season, hoping to see more first team action at Tannadice.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Cammy was born on this date in Aberdeen.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Signing from Dyce Boys Club, Cammy Smith came through the Aberdeen youth system to make his first team debut in April 2012 at the age of just 16, coming on as a substitute against Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

  • Ray McKinnon’s managerial reign at Dundee United began with a group phase visit to Arbroath for the newly formatted League Cup competition - now known as the Betfred Cup. McKinnon’s new-look side featured summer signings Cammy Bell in goal, Lewis Toshney, Stewart Murdoch and Tope Obadeyi, but there was no place for Willo Flood, who was still recovering from a knock he picked up for Aberdeen days before his return to Tannadice. On-loan Dons striker Cammy Smith had to settle for a place on the bench. Former United youth Ryan McCord was in the Arbroath line-up.

  • Dundee United faced League Two side, Cowdenbeath in the second of their Betfred Cup Group C matches and the first competitive home game of the new season. Manager Ray McKinnon made four changes to the starting line-up that drew 1-1 with Arbroath the previous Friday.

  • For this match against the unbeaten league leaders, Ray McKinnon named an unchanged side from the victory over Ayr United. Meanwhile, a goalkeeping crisis for Raith Rovers was solved by the signing of former Kilmarnock keeper Conor Brennan on the morning of the game, and he was thrown straight into the starting line up.

  • Last Appearance - Hibernian 3 - 0 Dundee United

    Hibs started the game at a frantic pace, utilising an attacking formation with Humphrey, Boyle, Cummings and Kris Commons, all pressing United in their own half for much of the opening period. Humphrey showed his pace and intention to attack Paul Dixon as early as the 2nd minute, leaving the United full back in his wake as he twisted and turned to ping a dangerous cross into the box. Hibs took a deserved but slightly fortuitous lead on six minutes. A second corner, in quick succession, was headed out of the United area but only to the onrushing Humphrey; his weak shot managed to find its way through to Jason Cummings and he knocked the ball past the helpless Bell from six yards out. United were in trouble again minutes later, Murdoch short with a pass back was helped out by a stretching Edjenguele who got to the ball just before Cummings could benefit. Mark Durnan then caused further anxiety in the away end, slicing a clearance that put Cammy Bell under pressure. Toshney then made a brave clearance as Commons unleashed a fierce strike from twenty yards as it looked like Hibs would run riot. United failed to get any hold in the game, and even when they did get forward the final ball was left wanting as first Andreu and then Van der Velden wasted opportunities to put pressure on the Hibs defence. Hibs doubled their advantage on twenty six minutes, again with a hint of good fortune. McGregor made a crunching challenge on van der Velden; his clearance fell into the path of Humphreys and his clever touch took him clear of Dixon. He rifled in a low cross leaving Jason Cummings the simplest of tasks to tap home. Telfer was booked for a late tackle as the frustration in the United midfield became obvious. An offside flag then spared further blushes in the United rear guard as McGeouch’s clever run and slick pass sent Cummings clear on goal, only to be called back thanks to the assistant referee’s decision. A minute before the break Murdoch clattered into Barkley in the middle of the park to earn a caution from the referee.
