Joshua George "Josh" Dawkin (born 16 January 1992) is an English-born Welsh footballer who plays as a midfielder for St Ives Town, having signed for them in the summer of 2016.

Career[edit]

Born in St Ives, Cambridgeshire,[1] Dawkin has represented Wales at under-17 and 19 levels.[3] Although born in England, he qualifies to play for Wales through his mother:

"My mum was born in Wales, though she only lived there for a couple of years because my grandad was in the RAF."[4]

He made his professional debut for Norwich City aged 17, on 6 October 2009, in a match against Gillingham in the Football League Trophy.[5]

Dawkin began a one-month loan spell with Conference National side Cambridge United on 9 March 2012.

On 12 July 2012 Dawkin joined Conference National side Braintree Town F.C. along with former Norwich City F.C. defender Sam Habergham.

After a spell with Cambridge City, Dawkin joined Southern Premier Division side Dunstable Town in the summer of 2014 following their promotion the previous season.[6]

Spells followed for Biggleswade Town and St Neots Town, with whom Dawkin spent the second half of the 2015-16 season. In the summer of 2016 he moved to newly promoted Southern Premier Division side St Ives Town.[7]

Style of play[edit]

Dawkin expressed his strengths as a footballer as "running with the ball and dribbling", adding "I'm nowhere near as good as him but I'd like to model myself on Cristiano Ronaldo - I'd like to try and play like him."[4]
