Cammy Salkeld leaves the Honest Men
Cammy's time at Ayr United has been cut short through injury.
Having joined from Greenock Morton in July 2021, Cammy made 21 appearances for the Honest Men and chipped in with 2 goals.
Everyone at Ayr United wishes Cammy all the best with his recovery and for his future.
Managing Director, Graeme Mathie says: “I am pleased that we were able to find a resolution for Cammy’s situation which allows him to get the best possible care as he recovers from his injury.
Unfortunately, the injury itself, the associated rehab timescales and the fact he is out of contract in the summer was a particularly tough situation for him. Our physio Stevie Maguire deserves credit for referring Cammy for a scan, and also in assisting with the next stage of the process to ensure he has the best chance of returning to play in as strong a condition as possible. As a club we want to be known for doing the best by our people and through discussions with Cammy, his family and the Scottish PFA I am pleased we have found a solution that everyone is content with. Cammy leaves with our sincere best wishes and will be welcome back to Somerset Park any time in the future.”
Cammy says: “Firstly, I’m devastated to do such a bad injury in such a crucial time in the season. I feel my time at Ayr has been very up and down & inconsistent and I never really got going or had that consistency to put my stamp on games the way I would have wanted.
It’s upsetting for my time at the Club to end like this, but feel it’s for the best for both parties. Getting to do my rehab at home and being with friends and family was a big factor for me and the Club have been nothing but respectful & helpful and I don’t have a bad word to say about them.
The next year or so is going to be both a physical & mental challenge something I’m weirdly looking forward to as it gives me time to sit back, reset & kick on again when I’m fully fit. It’s another page in the book but this chapter has come to an end.
On that, I’m leaving a great changing room behind and honestly, a brilliant group of lads who I know work hard everyday to succeed on a weekend.
Not having the chance to work with the Gaffer is disappointing but I can see from the early days I was in the building with him there’s a new camaraderie about the place and the Club is only going in one direction.
Thanks also to the fans for their kind messages when rumour had hit about my injury and their continued support whilst I had an Ayr kit on.
All the best for the rest of the season.”
