CLUB CAREER

ABOUT

Dion Dublin was born in Leicester, and played during his youth for local teams such as Wigston and Thurmaston Magpies. He then moved to Norwich to start his professional career. He never made any first team appearances while at Carrow Road, and made a move to Cambridge United.

His career flourished at Cambridge, being converted from central defender to a forward and in partnership with another former fox, Steve Claridge, they both helped Cambridge to the 1992 play-off's and played in the team that was defeated by Leicester, who later failed in the final against Blackburn.

Cambridge had a fantastic spell and their best period in history, but to keep the budget they had to sell players and Dion Dublin attracted interest from Manchester United who decided to sign the 6ft 2in forward for a fee of 1 million.

His time with Manchester United was never a happy one, being sidelined with a broken leg and after just 12 league appearances moved on to Coventry City. His days at Highfield Road made him a better player and he also made his England debut while with the Sky Blues.

He was not picked for the 1998 World Cup, something seen as a bit of a riddle, since Dublin was the joint top goalscorer in the league and had allready made his full debut under Glenn Hoddle. He played a total of four times for England, never scoring any goals.

Dublin moved to Aston Villa and spent the next six seasons at Villa Park. Helping the club reach the FA Cup final in 2000 and many good finishes in the Premier League scoring a total of 48 goals in 155 league appearances for Villa.

When Dublin joined Leicester in 2004, the team was not really in a healthy condition and manager Micky Adams tried to bring in experienced personel to try to get a straight promotion back to the Premier League. Adams left and Levein came in, converting Dublin to a central defender. The Leicester born left the club in January 2006.

During a short spell in the SPL with Celtic he picked up two winners medals, one in the FA Cup and one in the League, only playing a handfull of games while at Celtic Park. He then moved to Norwich and stayed there until his retirement in 2008, at the age of 39 in a career lasting 20 years.
