Bruce: ‘On signing’
Cameron Bruce: “It’s brilliant to have signed this deal with the club and it’s a pleasure. I owe a lot to the coaches and players that I have played alongside, who have helped me get to this stage and I am grateful to the club for trusting and believing in me.
“Training with the first team in recent months has been a fantastic experience and one which I feel has really helped me. I’ve really enjoyed it and I hope with more hard work, that it can continue.
“It was an easy decision for me to commit my future to the club. The club has ambition and is going forward. This is where I want to be”.
Beuker: ‘Growing up in professional football’
Director of Football Marijn Beuker: “Cameron is a modern wing back, who possesses a lot of technical skills and game intelligence that not only make him a graceful player, but above all with which he has the potential to grow into an excellent wing-back. He has developed well in the Queen’s Park Academy in recent seasons. He has also shown himself a couple of times in professional football with the first team and will play in the U17 Euro’s in the coming weeks. That resulted in a lot of attention from clubs in England.
“That Cameron and his family has chosen to continue his career at Queen’s Park is an important signal to the rest of the Academy. Players and families at our club understand the vision and philosophy that is emerging and are seeing our first team staff will not hesitate to give opportunity to let young prospects play. In the coming years we are looking forward to help Cameron grow further in our unique development programs and help him get ready for his next steps in his career”.
