Cammy Smith: I have to thank the manager

Cammy Smith thanked Jack Ross after he awarded St Mirren FC Player of the Year at the Player of the Year awards dinner on Saturday night.
The forward had an incredible season with the Buddies – scoring 13 goals, including 10 in the league, on the way to winning the Ladbrokes Championship.
After being named the club’s official Player of the Year, alongside winning Goal of the Season, the Black & White Magazine Player of the Year and St Mirren Fans Council’s Young Player of the Year, Cammy said: “Obviously, I’m absolutely delighted. I’m surprised as well.

I have tried to be as consistent as I can over the course of the season and playing week-in week-out has helped that.
"I have to thank the manager for that. He has been brilliant with me.
"I remember this time last year being at the awards and sitting with the boys, with McGinn going up, Stevie Mallan going up, big Gary MacKenzie going up.
"I knew there was a chance of me coming back.
"It wasn’t 100 per cent, but I wanted to be the one going up there this season. You have got to be a bit selfish. But it was a really proud moment going up there.
"It has been a good season for me, the team has done really well and I couldn’t have asked for much more.

Cammy opened the scoring in a 2-1 win over Dunfermline in January as he was on the end of a wonderful team move.
It was a goal that earned him Goal of the Season award, alongside a nomination for PFA Goal of the Season and the approval of Barcelona.
Cammy says it’s no coincidence the Buddies scored such an impressive goal.

We work a lot in training about patterns of play and I think it was no fluke that we scored a goal like that.
"The build-up from Liam Smith into McGinn, then myself and Lewis Morgan made it a really good goal, for a team at any level.
"For us to score that, in a really big game, showed the quality and the personality of our team.
"It is probably one of the hardest places to go in the Championship, so for us to go there on a Friday night showed the confidence in this team.
"This side has that in abundance, from the manager through to the staff and the players, we have that sort of character."
