Claudio Franca Dias (born 10 November 1994) is an English semi-professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Southern League Premier Division Central club Banbury United.

Career[edit]

Northampton Town[edit]

Born in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire,[1] Dias joined Northampton Town at under-14 level and progressed through the club's youth system,[3] before signing his first professional contract along with David Moyo on 4 March 2013.[4] He made his professional debut for the club as a 76th-minute substitute for Luke Guttridge in a 2–0 win at home to Barnet on the final day of the 2012–13 season.[5] During the early months of the 2013–14 season, Dias was an unused substitute on six occasions, but failed to make an appearance.[6] He was subsequently released at the end of the season.[7]

On 30 August 2013, Dias joined Southern League Premier Division club Corby Town on a one-month loan.[8] He made his debut for the club a day later as a first half substitute for Tom James in a 1–0 away defeat to St Albans City.[9] He made three further league appearances during his loan spell.[10]

On 13 December 2013, Dias joined Southern League Premier Division club Banbury United on a one-month loan.[3] He made his debut for the club as a 66th-minute substitute in a 4–2 away defeat to former club Corby Town five days later.[10] In Banbury's next match away to Hemel Hempstead Town, Dias came on as a half-time substitute, before scoring a second half hat-trick in a 5–3 defeat.[11] His loan spell concluded having made three league appearances for the club.[10][12]

On 7 March 2014, Dias rejoined Banbury United on loan until the end of the 2013–14 season.[12][13] He made a further 12 league appearances,[10] including one goal in a 6–4 win at home to Biggleswade Town on 8 April 2014 to ensure Banbury's survival in the Southern League Premier Division.[14]

Non-League[edit]

Following his release by Northampton Town, Dias began training with newly promoted Southern League Premier Division club Dunstable Town, for whom he made one appearance as a 63rd-minute substitute in a 2–1 away win at Bideford on the opening day of the 2014–15 season.[10][15] Thereafter, Dias signed for Southern League Division One Central club Bedford Town on an undisclosed length contract.[16] He made his debut for the club as a second-half substitute in a 4–0 away defeat to Marlow on 25 October 2014.[17] Dias scored his first goal for the club two minutes after coming on as an 86th-minute substitute in a 4–0 win at home to Brightlingsea Regent in the FA Trophy first qualifying round one week later.[10] However, after making his third appearance for Bedford, Dias was ruled out through injury,[18] before returning in a 3–3 draw with Godalming Town as a 67th-minute substitute on 16 December 2014, his final appearance for the club.[10]

Dias moved to Southern League Division One Central club Barton Rovers shortly before the start of the 2015–16 season and made his debut for the club as a substitute in the FA Cup preliminary round, a 3–1 win at home to Berkhamsted on 29 August 2015.[10] He scored his first goal for the club, a 49th-minute equaliser from 30-yards in a 2–2 draw with Northwood one week later.[10][19] Dias later scored the final goal in a 3–1 win at home North Greenford United on 21 November 2015 to help Barton end a run of four consecutive league defeats.[10][20] He went on to make a total of 18 appearances in all competitions and scored three goals.[10]

Dias moved up two divisions after he was signed by new Brackley Town manager Kevin Wilkin in the build-up to the 2016–17 season as part of a reshape of the squad.[21] He came on as an 87th-minute substitute for Shane Byrne to make his debut appearance for Brackley in a 4–2 away win at Stockport County.[6] His second and final appearance was in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round when he came off the bench as an 87th-minute substitute to score a stoppage time goal in a 5–0 away win at Beaconsfield SYCOB to help Brackley earn a first round match away to Gillingham.[22]

Dias moved up another division to sign for National League club Braintree Town on 21 October 2016.[23]

He re-signed for Barton Rovers ahead of 2017–18 following a second spell with Dunstable Town.[24] Dias signed for United Counties League Division One club Potton United on 19 February 2018.[25] He made his debut five days later, starting in a 3–0 away win over Burton Park Wanderers.[26] Dias scored his first two goals in a 3–1 away victory over Harrowby United on 17 March.[27]

Dias signed for Southern League Premier Division Central club Stratford Town on 4 July 2018.[28] He left the club on 10 January 2019, having made 21 appearances and scored one goal.[29][30] A day later, he joined Stratford's divisional rivals Tamworth[31] and made his debut against his previous club as a 68th-minute substitute in a 1–0 home defeat the following day.[32]

On 5 June 2019, Dias rejoined Banbury United on a one-year contract.[33]
