Cameron Norman: "I Have Found My Place"

Walsall defender Cameron Norman has spoken ahead of this weekend's League Two clash between the Saddlers and Crewe Alexandra and, and after a year of upheaval, feels settled at the club and ready to realise his potential.
After an impressive 2017/18 in the Southern League, Cameron endured a hectic eighteen months having left King’s Lynn Town for Oxford United in May 2018 the right-back had very little time to settle into life at the Kassam as by January 2019 he was on the move once again with the Saddlers paying an undisclosed fee to bring him to Banks’s Stadium.

After struggling to find form after being thrown in at the deep end Cameron eventually fell out of favour as Dean Keates' Saddlers were ultimately relegated from League One, ending a twelve-year long affiliation with the third tier of the English game.

And Norwich-born Norman admits it’s only been since the start of pre-season that he’s truly felt settled in the West Midlands.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Cameron said; "I had a crazy season last year. The start was brilliant, getting my chance in the Football League. It was something I had worked really hard for.

"Then I was on the move again. I had just moved to Oxford from Norwich. But then I had to make another big move.

"When I joined I came into the group in January and things were on a bit of a downward slope but things have been completely different since the new gaffer came in.

"I feel more settled and a lot more confident. In the team, I understand my role a lot better, I feel I have found my place now."
