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. Used mostly during the first part of the season he quickly netted five goals for the club, including a hat-trick against Partick Thistle in the League Cup. First team opportunities became limited though and he soon return to his parent club before joining St Mirren for the second half of the campaign. He spent eighteen months with St Mirren thereafter and earned promotion to the Premiership with the Buddies at the end of the 2017-18 season.

Midway through the 2018-19 campaign, he returned to United on a permanent transfer.

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.

  • United faced their third away game in three weeks as they travelled to the Falkirk Stadium to face a resurgent Falkirk FC.

  • United went into their home game with Championship bottom team Alloa Athletic knowing that a win would bring them to within five points of leaders Ross County. However, they knew it would be a tough game given that this was the sixth meeting of the two teams this season with United only having won one of the previous five games.
