Walsall player 180. Eddie Cameron.


• Edward S. “Eddie” Cameron (1895 – after 1933) was a Scottish professional footballer who made 139 appearances in the Football League playing for Birmingham, Walsall, Nelson and Exeter City. He played as a forward.
Cameron was born in Glasgow. He began his football career with Clydebank for moving to England to sign for Birmingham in July 1921. Cameron, described as “a burly Scot … never a great goal scorer, but a player who ’employed direct methods’”, made his debut in the First Division on 29 August 1921 in a 2–1 win away at Chelsea. He played five more times, scoring once, but was allowed to leave for Walsall at the end of the 1921–22 season. He played regularly for the club for a little less than two years, then moved up to Nelson of the Second Division in March 1922. Unable to prevent their relegation that season, he contributed to their immediate promotion back to the Second Division in 1924–25.
• In 1926 he joined Stafford Rangers, where his prolific goalscoring helped them to the championship of the Birmingham & District League in the 1926–27 season, and helped him earn a return to the Football League with Exeter City. He scored nine goals from 24 Third Division South games – completing his set of all four Football League divisions played in – before an unsuccessful trial at former club Nelson preceded a return to Stafford Rangers and a runners-up medal in the 1929–30 season. He then won his second Birmingham & District League title, this time with Cradley Heath, and scored goals for Hednesford Town, before finishing off his career with yet another return to Stafford Rangers.

Following report from Pics on his signing…………..

Josh CRADDOCK – Midfielder. Highly rated, tough tackling midfield enforcer who possesses a formidable engine, he signed during summer 2012 after ending the previous campaign with Stourbridge. Began his career by coming through the ranks with Walsall as a front runner to complete a two-year Apprenticeship at the Banks’s Stadium, culminating in him netting 12 goals in just 16 starts as the Youth Team scooped the Youth Alliance North-West Conference Championship in 2007-08. May 2008 saw him awarded a professional deal after also making his Saddler’s debut just prior to the end of the campaign as a substitute in the Football League One clash with Hartlepool United. During 2008-09 he featured extensively for the Reserve’s, but appeared only twice more as a substitute for the First Team. During summer 2009 Walsall confirmed he had chosen to leave professional football in order to pursue a University education. After linking up with local side Cradley Town for a short spell at the start of the 2009-10 campaign, he later signed for Halesowen Town, before eventually transferring to Hednesford Town in February 2010 – where he helped the Pitmen reach the semi-final of the Southern League Premier Division play-offs. During summer 2010 he moved on to Stourbridge and last season he was an integral part of the Glassboys side who reached the Second Round of the FA Cup – disposing of League Two Plymouth Argyle in a first-round replay, before eventually losing out to League One Stevenage. DoB: 5 March 1991 (Aged 21).
