Dixon comes on board

Jun 11, 2022

Peterhead have confirmed the identity of one of their two experienced captures of the summer with former Scotland international defender Paul Dixon moving to the club from Falkirk.

The 35-year-old has agreed a deal with Balmoor boss Jim McInally and the Aberdeen born defender will return to the North-East following the expiry of his contract with fellow League One Bairns.

Dixon came through the youth ranks at Dundee before crossing the street to sign for rivals Dundee United ahead of joining Huddersfield Town in 2012.

He returned north again to sign for United three years later and a spell at Grimsby Town followed before Dixon, who played against Serbia, Macedonian and Luxembourg for Scotland, signed for The Falkirk Stadium Club in 2018, making 99 appearances for the Bairns.

Blue Toon manager Jim McInally said: “We are a wee bit short of experience last season and the departures since them have lessened our experience further so I am delighted to get Paul in.”

“Having seen him play last season close up I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do for Peterhead, both in terms of his own game and bringing some of our young players on during games.”

“He is a fit lad and can make a big impression for us in the new season.”
