Performance of Lyall Cameron was shining light

Oct 27, 2020

The performance of on-loan Dundee midfielder Lyall Cameron in Peterhead’s 2-0 home defeat from Cove Rangers was a real positive for Balmoor boss Jim McInally who reckons the 18-year-old is an even better player than he first thought. 

Cameron made his Dark Blues first team debut last year in a Betfred Cup tie at Raith Rovers and went on to feature in two further games for James McPake’s side before joining the Blue Toon earlier this month. 

The youngster made his debut when he came off the bench on his 18th birthday when McInally’s side defeated Dundee United in the Betfred Cup on October 10 and after making two further substitute appearances Cameron started at the weekend and shone throughout the 90 minutes. 

McInally said: “I knew Lyall was a good player when we got him in but it turns out he is a better player than I first thought. He is a very good passer of the ball and he can also whip in a really dangerous cross.” 

“He took playing against an experienced Cove side in his stride and based on what we saw on Saturday he can go on and have an influence at Peterhead during his loan spell.”
