A young striker, Cameron Lancaster got a sniff of first team football in the Premier League as a substitute against Wigan Athletic in 2011, but then dropped off the radar for a year.
Brought up in Muswell Hill, attending East Barnet School and playing for Oakhill Tigers in the Watford league as a youngster, Cameron looked a good prospect and his height as a teenager marked him out as a striker of note.
Signing for Tottenham Hotspur's academy in 2009, his strength earned him a loan spell in 2010-11 with Dagenham & Redbridge, with four games in League One. On his return to the club, Lancaster was in the Under-19 side, being called upon to feature in the 3-1 Premier League win over Wigan Athletic, coming on as a substitute and having a chance to add to the scoring, but hitting the side-netting from a tight angle.
With a strength to hold up the ball and hold off defenders, it seemed like Cameron would be a young back up striker for the first team squad. However, he went missing for the whole of the 2012-13 season without so much as a word from the club about any injury or other reason for his absence. After the season, Spurs revealed that the forward had been out with an injury.
However, he was back in the Spurs XI squad for pre-season friendlies in the summer of 2013, looking fit and raring to go, but almost disappeared from sight for the next year, appearing sporadically for the Under-21a before being released in the summer of 2014.
Cameron was on trial with
Crewe Alexandra, but signed for Stevenage just a couple
of weeks after the season started. The striker
only featured in a handful of games at the Lamex
Stadium, before heading into the non-League scene at St.
Albans City, where his stay was equally brief. The
next stop in his career was at Louisville City - a US
third tier club.
