Martin Cameron is a Scottish forward, who played for Rovers for two years between 2000 and 2002. He was brought to the club from Alloa Athletic prior to the start of the 2000-01 season by manager Ian Holloway, for a transfer fee of £100,000, but in spite of the large sum paid for his services he was unable to command a regular spot in the Rovers side, making just fourteen appearances in his first league campaign. His second year with the club was slightly more successful, with twenty-five league appearances and nine in cup competitions, scoring a total of five goals.

In 2004 it was clear that his services would no longer be required by new manager Ray Graydon, and he was sent out on loan to Partick Thistle at the end of the 2003-04 season. In the summer of 2004 Cameron headed back north of the border to join St Mirren.

CareerEdit

Martin established himself early on as a fans' favourite at his first club, Alloa Athletic. He built a good reputation for himself, helped by two goals in the final of the 1999 Scottish Challenge Cup, and by 2000 word of his achievements had spread south of the border. He was signed by Bristol Rovers in the summer of 2000, but after a slightly disappointing two years, during which time he was loaned to Partick Thistle, he moved back to Scotland to join St Mirren.

After a year at St Mirren he signed for Gretna, who were playing in the Scottish Third Division at the time. The club had recently been taken over by Brooks Mileson, who's cash input would eventually take them to the top flight of Scottish football and whose later withdrawal from the club would lead them to extinction. Martin left the club on loan to play for Shamrock Rovers during the Irish 2005 season, before returning to Gretna in the summer.

A return to Scotland beckoned for the start of the 2005-06 season, and Martin joined Forfar Athletic for a year, before signing for Scottish Junior side Penicuik Athletic in 2006. He was forced to leave due to a fall out at the club when he reportedly headbutted a teammate in an argument over who would take a penalty, whereupon he moved firstly to Bonnyrigg Rose and then to Tranent Juniors in 2009. He runs his own haulage firm, while playing part-time football.
