Striker Dixon is a Diamond
We are delighted to welcome 18-year-old striker Joe Dixon to the club.
English forward Joe joins the Diamonds after spells at Middlesbrough, Hull City and Harrogate Town.
Having impressed on trial in recent weeks, the young frontman has been handed a deal until the end of the season with the option of a further year.
Joining his new team-mates for training at the Excelsior Stadium, the England Schoolboys cap told airdriefc.com: “I can’t wait to start - I’ve heard it’s quite different to English football, so I’m excited for the challenge!
“The boys are a great set of lads. They have good fun, but they work hard as well. There’s a good balance between standard and fun, so I’m really enjoying it so far.”
Manager Rhys McCabe is excited by his new signing’s potential: “Joe’s come up with good pedigree, he’s hard-working and willing to learn the game so it’s one we’re looking at longer-term.
“Getting Joe in and around the first-team environment and training on a regular basis means we can work with him closely and hopefully reap the benefits of his progress.”
Welcome to the Diamonds, Joe!
