ALLOA’S new striker Innes Cameron admits scoring a goal against Ayr this weekend wouldn’t be the worst way to return to his old club.

Cameron joined the Wasps on loan from Kilmarnock last week and trained with the club on Saturday after that day’s match against Inverness Caley Thistle was postponed.

He spent the first half of the season on loan with fellow Championship club Ayr United, who just happen to be this weekend’s opponents.

The Ayrshire boy says he’s only got good things to say about his time with the club – but admitted he’d be happy to score a goal against them.

Speaking exclusively to Advertiser Sport, Cameron said: “I suppose it wouldn’t be the worst way to go back.”

Cameron explained how the move to Alloa came about, adding he might have been here sooner had it not been for an injury crisis at his parent club Kilmarnock.

He continued: “It was probably two or three weeks ago [he started talking to Alloa], but there was quite a few injuries at Killie so it meant I had to postpone it a little bit, but I’m glad it’s over the line now and I can get started.”

Every player wants to play games, however last Saturday’s postponement gave Cameron a chance to get to know his new teammates.

“Obviously it would have been good to go straight into a game,” he said. “But it was a benefit getting to familiarise myself with everyone beforehand.”

In one of those coincidences that only seem to happen in football, Cameron would have perhaps made his debut against ICT, but now could potentially make his first appearance against his old club.

He added: “That’s maybe how the world works. I’m looking forward to it, I’ve got nothing against Ayr, I’m just trying to play games and further my career.”

Cameron has experience of playing against Alloa, playing in a pre-season game against them and also in the league with Ayr.

He said: “They play good football, they pass it about with a lot of very good players. I’m just delighted I can be a part of that and help everyone along.”

Captain Andy Graham touted the 20-year-old for a bright future in pre-season and Cameron appreciates the kind words.

He said: “It helps knowing your teammates believe in you and gives you that boost of confidence so they’re very kind words. He’s a very good player and hopefully he can ping a few balls over the top for me.”

Alloa manager Peter Grant admitted he wanted to sign the striker last year, and Cameron added that belief is what footballers desire.

“It shows he believes in me and that’s all you really want as a footballer,” he continued. “That’s something I want to repay by scoring a few goals.”
