5. JOHN DIXON
One of the longest serving members of The Mighty Shane, John has been a magnificent servant to the club. Comfortable playing either left or right-back, on either flank, and occasionally in the middle of defence, his versatility has proved invaluable down the years.
A defender who is calmness personified on the ball, is able to play out from the back and who possesses deceptively quick feet in tight spaces, he is very much a “modern defender”.
Though John is unable to turn out as regularly as he used to due to being a father, it’s always a lift to the team to see him in the squad. We look forward to seeing him perform, when available, during the 2017 season.
