A Scottish Schoolboy International, he joined Queens Park Rangers from Port Glasgow Rangers in June 1950, making his debut for them on 13th January 1951 in a 3-1 home win over Coventry City. He represented London in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup on 4th May 1956 at White Hart Lane in a 1-0 victory over Basel (Switzerland) with Spurs left winger George Robb scoring the winner three minutes from time. He scored fifty-nine goals in two hundred and fifty-six appearances before he was brought to Leeds by his former boss Jack Taylor in July 1959. A useful and experienced player, who found himself in and out of the side as his Manager shuffled the squad around in an attempt to find a winning formula. The possessor of a deadly right foot, his shooting power was well known to the United fans and he was the designated penalty taker. He found himself in a struggling side and his stay was punctuated by injuries. Cameron was not, perhaps, the ideal player for Leeds United as they slid into crisis. He was forced into a struggling side that lacked direction. Although he brought with him a cheerful disposition, he was accused of having a rather casual attitude to the game. He was not, however, lacking in ability and could play either at right-half or inside-forward. In his unstressed way, he liked to get involved, demanding the ball at every oppurtunity so he could work it forward. The Leeds Managers did not always have confidence in his more adventurous forays and sometimes sat fearfully in the dug-out as he threw caution to the wind. During the 1961-62 season, Cameron's appearances dwindled and, at the end of the season, he left for Non-League Gravesend and Northfleet in July 1962. However, he returned to League football in October 1963 with Southend United, but only made three League appearances. He remained at Roots Hall until the end of the season and then emigrated to Australia where he played for Adamstown Rosebuds. He is presently living near Newcastle in New South Wales, Australia and in good health.
