Partick Thistle are delighted to announce the signing of creative midfielder Cammy Smith on a two-year deal, subject to international clearance.
The 25-year-old joins us following a stint in the Unites States with USL Championship side Indy Eleven where he played 13 games, starting nine times.
Smith came through the ranks at Aberdeen, making his professional debut as a 16-year-old in an SPL win over Inverness. He would go on to play a total of 89 times for the Dons before departing for St. Mirren in 2017 following a successful loan spell in Paisley.
Probably the best season of his career so far came in his maiden campaign as a fully-fledged St. Mirren player. Cammy recorded 10 goals in 34 Championship games as the Buddies won promotion to the top flight of Scottish football, being nominated for the Championship Player of the Year award in the process.
Smith’s most recent experience in Scotland came with Ayr United last season where he managed eight goals in 28 appearances before leaving to pursue the aforementioned transatlantic opportunity.
Cammy will also be subject to standard quarantine protocols and will join the squad as soon as possible.
On the deal, Thistle manager Ian McCall said:
“I’m really pleased to add Cammy to the squad. He’s a good age with plenty of experience for a 25 year old and will bring a lot of quality to our team. I’ve said we need that extra bit of creativity and Cammy certainly has that. He’s a good age with plenty of experience for a 25 year old and will bring a lot of quality to our team.
“He’s someone who can thrive in a few different roles as well whether that’s out wide, as an advanced midfielder or up closer to the striker – he gives options with the way we want to attack teams. I’ve tried to sign Cammy before and I’m thrilled he has chosen to come to Firhill as I know there were a number of clubs interested in his services.”
Smith will wear squad number 11 this season.
