Kevin Robert Dixon (born 27 June 1980 in Easington, County Durham, England) is an English former professional footballer. He was born in Easington, County Durham, and currently plays for Northern League side Bishop Auckland. He has represented England at Under-18 level.
Dixon began his career as a trainee with Leeds United, but failed to make the first team at Elland Road. He joined York City on loan in August 1999, making his league debut on 7 August in a 1-0 win at home to Swansea City. He played twice more in the league for York, with a further appearance in the League Cup, at home to Wigan Athletic, before returning to Leeds United at the end of his one month loan spell.
Dixon was released by Leeds at the end of the 2000-01 season, joining Barnsley in July 2001. However, he fractured a shin after just three days of pre-season training and was out for the following season. In an attempt to regain match fitness, Dixon joined Doncaster Rovers on loan in October 2002, but only to play reserve games. Dixon was released by Barnsley in September 2003.
In November 2005, Dixon joined Kettering Town from Seaham Red Star as one of manager Paul Gascoigne's signings. However, the move did not work out and he returned to Seaham Red Star in January 2006.
