Career[edit]

On 4 August 2000, he signed for Lincoln City agreeing a three-month deal with the club.[3] On 15 January 2001 he agreed a deal to remain with the until the end of the season.[4]

He remained on loan with the club until April, making ten Northern Premier League appearances and scoring one goal, his final appearance being the 1-0 victory at Worksop Town on 21 April 2003.

Camm joined Southern League side King's Lynn on a three-month loan in October 2003, making his debut against Ashford Town. On 12 January 2004 he agreed a deal to cancel his contract with Lincoln City by mutual consent[6] enabling him to join King's Lynn on a permanent basis, agreeing an 18-month contract with the club.[7]

Camm remained with the club until the end of the 2008-2009 season. During his time at King's Lynn he was an integral part of the side which won the Southern League Eastern Division title in 2004, the Southern League Cup in 2005 and the Southern Premier League title in 2008. Whilst he was mainly utilised as a holding midfielder, he also played at full back and centre back when the need arose.

On 2 January 2006 in a league match at Banbury United; Camm played in goal for almost 80 minutes. King's Lynn were already trailing 2-0 when goalkeeper John Higgs dislocated his shoulder. With no substitute keeper on the bench Camm volunteered to don the gloves and put in an inspired performance despite the Linnets eventually losing the game 4-2.[8]

A change in management at King's Lynn following their demotion from Conference North for ground grading issues at the end of the 2008-9 season saw Camm released from the club he had served for over 5 years. He made a total of 269 appearances for the West Norfolk club and scored 6 goals.[9] He is still held in high regard by many King's Lynn supporters and in April 2016 he was named 47th in the club's "50 players from the past".[10]

Finding himself without a club, Camm became the first new signing for Boston United for the 2009-2010 season. He was released in May 2010.[11]

He signed for Worksop Town in May 2010.[12] He joined Frickley Athletic, debuting in the 3-0 defeat Northern Premier League Premier Division at Burscough on 20 November 2010.[13] In a bid to try to obtain regular football to improve his fitness on 13 December 2010 he joined Rainworth Miners Welfare on loan.
