Cameron: Dream Come True

13 April 2015

Winger Delighted To Score First Goal

Henry Cameron says his first goal for Blackpool was 'a dream come true', though he didn't know how to react when he scored it.

The 17-year-old latched on to a ball from Gary Madine at Ipswich to mark his return to the side, having earlier set-up Andrea Orlandi at Portman Road.

"It was just a dream come true, I didn't know what to do when I scored. It was crazy," he said. "It was all just a blur, Gary did well to get the ball across and I just gambled on it. The first thing I did was say thanks to Gary."

The winger was something of a surprise inclusion in the team following six weeks out with ankle ligament damage, however manager Lee Clark was keen to get him back in action.  

"It was my first training session on Thursday and everyone was telling me to take it easy, but I hadn't trained in six weeks so I just went for it. I trained for two days and then I was told on Saturday morning that I'd be starting. I wasn't even expecting to be in the squad."

Cameron has been on the books at Bloomfield Road since the age of 11, although his breakthrough season at professional level is still sinking in.  

"At the start of the season my head was down and at one point I wanted to quit football," he revealed. "Come Christmas I was in the squad for the Aston Villa and since then things have just taken off.

"I just want to help the team get a few good results before the end of the season and push on for the next one now."
