Career[edit]

West Bromwich Albion[edit]

Gayle was born in Birmingham and began his career with West Bromwich Albion. He spent a month on loan at Knattspyrnufélagið Víkingur in Iceland in May 2010,[2] where he made one substitute appearance, before making his first appearance for the senior Albion team on 27 August 2013, against Newport in the League Cup, coming on as a 70th minute substitute.

Shrewsbury Town[edit]

On 22 November 2012, his 20th birthday, Gayle joined Shrewsbury Town on loan,[3] making his debut two days later in a 1-0 loss away to Oldham Athletic.[4] In January 2013 his loan spell at Shrewsbury was extended until the end of the 2012–13 season.[5] He scored his first senior goal for Shrewsbury in a 2–0 victory over Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park.[6]

On 28 November 2013, Cameron signed for Shrewsbury Town for a second loan spell,[7] but this was not extended beyond its initial period with the good form of Ryan Woods restricting Gayle to just two starts and one substitute appearance before he returned to his parent club in January 2014.[8][9]

Following his release from West Bromwich Albion, Gayle joined Shrewsbury on a permanent basis, signing a two year deal on 10 July 2014.[10]
