Oban Saints striker heads for foot­ball ad­ven­ture down un­der

The Oban Times - - Sport -

SATUR­DAY’S can­celled Scot­tish Am­a­teur Cup match against Con­dor­rat Club was to have been Lewis Cameron’s farewell ap­pear­ance for Oban Saints be­fore his de­par­ture for a land down un­der. Lewis will be ac­com­pa­nied on his an­tipodean ad­ven­ture by his girl­friend Re­becca MacDougall and ev­ery­body at Oban Saints wishes them well.

Lewis will con­tinue to play foot­ball while in Aus­tralia and al­ready has a trial ar­ranged with semi-pro­fes­sional club Rochedale Rovers of the Bris­bane Pre­mier League. Rochedale’s Tech­ni­cal Di­rec­tor is Scott MacNicol who can count Dun­fermline Ath­letic and Brechin City among his former clubs, as well as a fleet­ing pre-sea­son friendly ap­pear­ance for Oban Saints. Scott is the son of former Dun­beg favourite Brian MacNicol and the nephew of Saints leg­end Dougie Camp­bell, who has rec­om­mended Lewis to the Bris­bane Club.

As well as play­ing for Saints Lewis, was a reg­u­lar in the Scot­tish Am­a­teur League Se­lect team and made his full in­ter­na­tional de­but for Scot­land at Tul­lam­ore against Ire­land last April. With the match fin­ish­ing 1-1 the game went into the dreaded penalty shoot- out but Lewis calmly stepped up and drilled the fifth, and last, penalty into the back of the net to re­tain the Gra­ham Hark­ness Tro­phy for his coun­try.

While the loss of the Scot­tish Am­a­teur in­ter­na­tional is un­doubt­edly a blow to Saints it does re­lease a start­ing po­si­tion in at­tack, which is an area where Saints are rel­a­tively well off for play­ers. Man­ager Alex Craik has plenty of op­tions to con­sider ahead of Saints next game on Novem­ber 7 against Camp­bel­town Pupils.

for Oban Saints.
