Ben Dixon

Norwich Career: Trial (April 1996)
Current Club: Grantham Town (Unibond Division One South)
Date of Birth: 16/09/1974(Lincoln)
Nationality: English


Lincoln City defender Ben Dixon had a trial with Norwich City in the latter part of the 1995-96 season. He had impressed then Canaries manager Gary Megson when Gary had a brief spell at Lincoln earlier that season. Ben made one reserve team appearance at home to Bristol Rovers in a 4-0 victory on 17th April 1996.

When Megson moved to Blackpool to become their manager he signed Dixon in July 1996 for £50,000. The Blackpool website described Ben as an England under-18 international who is a stylish left sided player who can play on the wing or at full back. Ben was released by Blackpool in the summer of 1998 after making only 18 appearances for the Seasiders.

The January 1999 edition of Team Talk magazine informed its readers that Unibond Northern League side Whitby Town had signed Ben Dixon from Singapore's Woodlands Wellington club.

In August 2004, Ben left Whitby to sign for Gainsborough Trinity but was released in October 2004 and joined Ossett Town. He moved again in January 2005 to join Lincoln United. In July 2007, he followed manager John Wilkinson to sign for Grantham Town
