Hoops sign Scotland U21 international midfielder Cameron King


Rovers this morning confirmed the signing of Cameron King until the end of the season.

The 21 year old midfielder makes the move to Tallaght Stadium having watched from the stands on Friday night as his new teammates overcame Glenville in the FAI Cup.

King joined Norwich City at just eight years of age and won The FA Youth Cup in 2013.

King played in both FA Youth Cup semi-final matches against Notts Forest that year and also played in both legs of the final which the Canaries won 1-0 and 3-2 against Chelsea to claim the cup.

In November 2014, Cameron was called up by Scotland’s Under-21s and played and scored for them.

He played again for the Scottish Under-21s on 5th September 2015, coming on as a late substitute in a win over Northern Ireland

He made his senior debut as a sub in a Capital One Cup match against Shrewsbury in September 2014 but saw his career with the Canaries come to an end in 2016 when both he and the club mutually decided to terminate his contract early due to trouble with persistent migraines.

Following this he joined his hometown club Thetford Town who play in the Eastern Counties Premier Division.

Speaking at todays announcement, gaffer Stephen Bradley sounded delighted to get the services of King until the end of the season.

“I was made aware of Cameron about six weeks ago and advised that I should take a serious look at him.

“Sometimes you get players in and they’re not what people say they are.

“Cameron was and he’s definitely going to be an attacking threat for us.

“We got him initially for just two or three days and straight away we liked what we saw. He’s very direct, very clever on the ball.

“He can play any attacking position, right, left or as a 10. We have him until the end of the season so hopefully he can show that quality.

“He has good character, he’s hungry to get his career back on track and hopefully this is the place for him. I see him being a good player for us between now and the end of the season and making a real impact.”
