Biography


Born in Dundee on July 2nd 1943, it would be while playing for Blairgowrie Juniors that Kenny Cameron would come to the notice of his first senior outfit, Dundee Football Club.

Already a prolific goalscorer, Cameron would take the step into the Dundee first team at the start of the 1962/63 season. Making his debut in the League Cup group stages in a 2-1 win over Dundee United, he would find breaking into the starting eleven on a regular basis a tough task, but considering Dundee were the current Scottish Champions, that said more about the illustrious company he was attempting to keep than his own talents.

Three goals in five appearances in his first term with The Dark Blues would be followed with a more impressive 22 strikes from 28 games in his second. And across his six seasons at Dens Park Cameron would maintain those scoring feats, ending his time on the Dark Blue side of Dundee with 71 goals from 113 starts for the club.

An excellent all round player, Cameron would undoubtedly be best remembered for his goal scoring exploits and non-more so than his equaliser for Dundee against Rangers in the 1964 Scottish Cup Final. A glorious volley coming less than a minute after the Glasgow club had taken the lead, Cameron’s strike would, in 2000, be voted the third best goal in Hampden Park history, even if it wasn’t enough to secure the silverware for Dundee as they lost out 3-1 in what had been a keenly contested encounter.

Cameron’s talents in front of goal would continue in his last season with Dundee, 10 goals from 18 starts and 6 substitute appearances arriving during the 1966/67 season. However, his frustrations at not quite being able to secure a regular starting spot saw Dundee accept a £10,000 bid from Kilmarnock for the striker’s services.

Cameron would only see out the end of that season at Rugby Park before heading back to the city of Dundee, this time donning tangerine and black. Spending seven years at Tannadice, the striker’s knack for scoring would continue, with his 83 goals for the club helping the player secure a place in the Dundee United Hall of Fame in 2011.

Moving north in 1974 Cameron would join Montrose and continue scoring goals at the rate of more than 1 in every 3 games as The Gable Endies would enter something of a purple patch, appearing in both Scottish Cup Quarter and Semi-Finals.

Moving into player management at Links Park in 1975 Cameron would remain in the game for decades to come. After leaving Montrose he would join the Tannadice backroom team as a coach before taking the managerial hot seat at Junior club, Dundee St. Joseph’s, in 1996, after more the 15 years with United.

A year later Cameron would return to where it all began, becoming part of the coaching staff at Dens Park, where he’d remain until cuts enforced by the club going into administration in 2003 ended his time both with Dundee and in senior football after an impressive 41 years service to the game.
