Itimi Dickson Edherefe is a Singapore international football player who last played for Persidafon Dafonsoro.

Club career[edit]

Previously, he played for Jurong FC, Woodlands Wellington FC, Young Lions and Persitara Jakarta Utara.

In 2001, Dickson was suspended for three months and fined S$1,000 for punching Home United's Harun Juma'at. He fell out with head coach V. Sundramoorthy after serving out his ban and was transferred to Woodlands Wellington in 2002.[1]

Dickson returned to S-league to play for Home United after an unsuccessful season with Persitara Jakarta Utara.

International career[edit]

Fast and aggressive in attack, Itimi provides width and decent flair to a Singapore national side midfield that lacks the technical capability.

Although he was born in Nigeria, he received Singapore citizenship under the Foreign Sports Talent Scheme in 2004.[1] Itimi was in the Singapore squad that won the Tiger Cup regional football championship in 2004.

He was given a 6-month ban from representing Singapore when he was absent from training with the national team.[when?] He later bounced back from the ban by playing well in league and was subsequently made part of the AFF Championship winning side.
