Breaking | Cameron Salkeld signs one-year deal

Greenock Morton Football Club are delighted to announce manager David Hopkin’s second signing of the day, forward Cameron Salkeld on a one-year contract that runs until 10 June 2020.

The Ton boss beat off competition from a number of clubs to secure Salkeld’s services following an impressive season with National League outfit Gateshead.

Salkeld, 20, joined fellow Englishman Sam Ramsbottom at Cappielow this afternoon as Hopkin completed a double swoop, and the Greenock gaffer was thrilled to be able to add the versatile former Carlisle United man to his squad.

He told “Cameron is someone we’d seen playing. Dave Timmins has watched him a number of times. He’s only turned 20, he’s 6ft 1in, has a great physique and is very quick and direct.

“He can also play in numerous positions: he can play right wing-back, left wing-back, he can play in the middle, he can play up front.

“He’s one that I have been monitoring. I have a lot of contacts who are scouts in the north east of England, and I asked them about players because I knew Gateshead were in a bit of financial trouble and their players were available.

“Cameron has everything and it’s an opportunity for him to come and play. I had him, his agent, and his dad in today and they are all delighted and he can’t wait to get started.

“He had three or four other options in England – I know there were two League Two clubs and one League One club trying to get him – so we’re delighted that he has decided to sign with us.”
