BiogDundee-born James Cameron moved to Celtic from Irish side Shelbourne in 1932 but his time in the Hoops was to be brief.
Cameron, an outside-right had to that point enjoyed a rather nomadic football career which included stints at Montrose, Dundee Harp and Dundee United.
The right-footed player made his debut against Aberdeen in a 3-0 league win at Celtic Park but through no real fault of his own he failed to impress having been selected by Willie Maley in the problematic outside-left position.
By January 1933 Cameron had slipped out of first team contention and was playing reserve team football where he suffered a serious injury in the form of a broken ankle. He departed Celtic Park after scoring two goals in his four first team appearances moving on to Arbroath and then Forfar.
On 7th December 1935 he played and scored for Forfar at Edinburgh City in a 2-2 draw played in freezing artic-like conditions. His journey back home to Dundee that evening saw him have to stand in an unheated corridor of a train carriage. He went down with pneumonia and just nine days after his goal at Pilton, James Cameron sadly passed away at the age of 29.
