Dummigan returns to League One
Cameron Dummigan, who got his first taste of league action last season with Oldham Athletic, has today returned to League One with Oldham Athletic and signed a two year deal with them.
Northern Ireland under-21 international Dummigan proved to be a big success at Oldham last season. He made a total of 26 league appearances for them and won their young player of the year award.
Although a right-back, he played several games for them in midfield and it is a position I’ve seen him fill in our development squad games this season in the two cup games against Stoke and Bournemouth although in the latter he moved to left-back when an injury forced Arlen Birch off.
Dummigan’s first season at Burnley saw him play in the two FA Youth Cup ties against Manchester United at Old Trafford and Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. That’s when a lot of people sat up and took notice of him; in the City game in particular he was outstanding.
In the following season he was part of the development squad that reached the semi-final of the Under-21 Premier League Cup. We lost that semi-final 3-2 against Manchester City with Dummigan scoring one of the goals with a superb strike.
He was on the bench for the first team when we kicked off the 2014/15 season with a home game against Chelsea but an injury kept him out for much of that season. Sean Dyche confirmed last summer that he would not have signed both Matt Lowton and Tendayi Darikwa had Dummigan not missed all that football in 2014/15.
I have to say I’m surprised at this news, was expecting him to go on loan. I think he’s a fantastic signing for Oldham.Share this page :
