Cameron 'Cammy' Smith (born 24 August 1995) is a Scottish footballer who plays for Scottish Premiership club Aberdeen.

Aberdeen[edit]

Smith came through Aberdeen's youth system, and was considered to be one of their brightest prospects.[3]

Manager Craig Brown wanted to give Smith his debut at the start of the 2011–12 season. However, Smith was under 16 and Scottish Premier League rules prevented him from playing. Smith made his debut on 21 April 2012, coming on as a 54th-minute substitute against Inverness Caledonian Thistle.[4]

Smith's first game of the 2012–13 season came as a substitute at Pittodrie against St. Mirren, in which he hit the crossbar with a header. He went on to score his first senior goal with a header in a 1–1 draw at Inverness Caledonian Thistle.Cammy Smith came on as a substitute in Aberdeen's win in the league cup final but sadly for him he got substituted later.

Style of play[edit]

Smith is primarily a striker but can also play in midfield.[3] His Aberdeen manager Craig Brown said that he was, "a strong, gifted striker." and said that he played like Dennis Bergkamp but was built like Joe Harper.[5]
