Defender

Profile

Biography

Highly rated in Australia, where he was already playing senior football for former club ECU Joondalup, Cameron Burgess was another exciting acquisition for the Academy in 2011.

A player that can operate in the centre of defence and on the left, from which his diagonal deliveries into the box are sure to be a threat over the coming season, the youngster is both assured in the tackle and in possession.

The teenager started his football education in Scotland, where he played in the youth teams of both Glasgow Celtic and Aberdeen, before moving with his family to Australia. Both his father and grandfather played professional football, so Cameron followed suit when he signed as a pro on 1st July 2013 after he impressed in the Scotland Under-20 squad at the ADO Den Haag Youth tournament in Holland.

Helped Fulham's Under-18s to the Final of the FA Youth Cup in the 2013/14 season and also made 21 league appearances, forming a formidable partnership with Liam Donnelly.
