Cammy’s so proud

Paisley Daily Express - - The Neil Deal -

Cammy Smith branded Saints’turn in for­tunes as un­be­liev­able hav­ing fi­nally sealed their re­turn to the top flight.

Smith was among a host of 10 sign­ings made by Jack Ross last Jan­uary as the Pais­ley side looked to avoid rel­e­ga­tion to League One.

And the for­mer Aberdeen man has been seen by many as the cat­a­lyst for St Mir­ren’s suc­cess this cam­paign with a num­ber of man-of- the-match per­for­mances.

But he ad­mit­ted the move to St Mir­ren came with some doubts hav­ing seen the predica­ment the side found it­self in prior to orig­i­nally ar­riv­ing on loan from Pit­to­drie 16 months ago.

Smith said:“I re­mem­ber the day Jack Ross phoned me, I was in the Aberdeen play­ers’ lounge. I’m not go­ing to lie, I looked at the ta­ble and saw that St Mir­ren were bot­tom.

“But the gaffer sold it to me by how well he came across – and I haven’t looked back. He’s put his faith in me and I have ab­so­lutely loved it.

“It’s bril­liant – not a lot of play­ers win a league so to do it at 22 with this group of play­ers in front of a full house is bril­liant.

“We just need to en­joy the mo­ment be­cause it has been fan­tas­tic.

“We got over the line and we knew a point would be enough.

“To come in when we were 10th in the league and on the brink of go­ing down, to now win­ning a league with three games to go is un­be­liev­able.”

Flag day Cammy and team­mates
