Mark Kerr has commented on what both Cammy Smith and Innes Cameron bring to his Ayr United side.

The Honest Men player-manager has bolstered his attacking options with two Premiership loanee’s. Smith joins on loan until January from Dundee United whilst Cameron arrives from fellow Ayrshire side Kilmarnock on a similar basis.

Smith was announced on Thursday before Cameron’s arrival was confirmed on Friday. Speaking on his Dundee United recruit first, Kerr is happy to have added proven experience to his side.

“Cammy has a lot of experience at the top level,” Kerr said of Smith. “He has won the Championship twice and was St Mirren’s best player when they won it. He is an attacking player who can score and assist and he is technically very good.


“Cammy was playing for United earlier in the season however has recently not been getting a start and he is hungry to play and be involved. He is a great age and we are absolutely delighted to bring in a player of his quality.”

On the capture from Kilmarnock, Kerr says Cameron’s difference to anyone in his squad was a real incentive to get him in: “Innes has progressed a lot in the last couple of seasons and is completely different to anything that we’ve got.

“There are not many big number 9s available just now so we are delighted to have been able to get one of them. Innes will add exactly what we have needed to the squad, he is strong and excellent in the air as well as being a good finisher.”
