Magpies Bolster Backline with Dickinson Deal

28 June 2016

Notts County sign Port Vale captain after he rejects a new deal from the Valiants

Notts County are thrilled to confirm the signing of 29-year-old defender, Carl Dickinson on a two-year deal.

Dickinson has vast experience, graduating Stoke City’s academy and making his professional debut with the club in 2004. After numerous spells on loan, Dickinson became a key part of the side that won promotion to the Premier League where he played five games for the Potters.

He then went on to sign for Watford, where he also had loan spells at Portsmouth and Coventry before joining Port Vale in 2013.

Dickinson quickly established himself in the Valiants starting line-up and was appointed club captain in 2014, making 127 league appearances at the club.

The signing sees Dickinson re-united with Richard Duffy, who was also a regular starter with Port Vale across the last few seasons.

Talking exclusively to Magpie Player HD, Dickinson couldn’t wait to get started in training later this week:

"I'm really looking forward to it and can't wait to get going.

"I'm a leader, I like to be loud in the dressing room and get the lads going.

"I'm going to show people I'm a good defender - I don't mind dishing it out a little bit, I'm hard working, wear my heart on my sleeve and give everything, day in, day out."
