The long-serving Elgin City midfielder broke a 46-game run without scoring when he netted the only goal of the game in City's win against East Fife this month.

On Saturday he notched his second of the campaign with a superb finish in the Black and Whites' 2-2 draw with league 2 leaders Stenhousemuir.

Watch Cameron's goal against Stenny below.

The 32-year-old local lad is closing in on a century of strikes for Elgin - Saturday was goal number 90 in all competitions.

He is third on the Moray club's goal charts since joining the Scottish League in 2000. Craig Gunn scored 138 and Shane Sutherland managed 98 in all competitions.

Cameron could also make his 500th starting appearance for his home town club this season.

Since making his debut as a substitute against Stenhousemuir in 2008, he has made a total of 544 appearances for City including 491 starts.

His first goal came in a 4-2 Challenge Cup defeat at Annan Athletic in 2009, and Annan is the club he has scored most goals against (12).

Cameron's 50th strike for Elgin was a penalty at home to Berwick Rangers in 2017 - eight of his 90 goals have come from the spot.

His best tally for a season is 16 in 2016-17 including a run of 11 goals in ten games.

He has scored 12 times in the Scottish Cup including strikes against Fraserburgh, Forres Mechanics, Bo'ness, Hawick Royal Albert and Clydebank.
