Burgess becomes the Iron's first summer recruit

6 June 2017

The Iron have completed the signing of central defender Cameron Burgess from Fulham for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old becomes United’s first new recruit of the summer and pens a three-year deal, leaving the London-based side after being there for six years.

Burgess joined the Cottagers’ academy in 2011 from ECU Joondalup in Australia, before signing a professional deal at Craven Cottage in 2013. 

He made his debut for the side in August 2014 in the Championship, making four appearances and impressing in a defensive midfield role.

Born in Aberdeen, he has represented Scotland three times at U19 level before switching his allegiance permanently to Australia, attaining three caps for the U20 side and seven at U23 level.

Last season, he made a total of 41 appearances in Sky Bet League One in loan spells at Oldham Athletic and Bury, scoring one goal.

He has also had loan spells at Ross County and Cheltenham Town in 2015 and 2016 respectively, the latter of which saw him aid the Robins to promotion from the National League.

Burgess will join up with his new teammates when the squad return for pre-season training at the end of June.
