Rawlinson came to an agreement with Port Vale to terminate his contract a year early and join us ahead of the 2019-20 campaign - and it paid off as he went on to win our Fans' Player of the Season award.
The commanding centre back's no-nonsense, committed displays also won the recognition of his team-mates, who voted him as the joint-winner of the Players' Player of the Season award alongside top scorer Kyle Wootton.
Rawlinson, who began his career at Chester, continued to be an important part of our defence in 2020-21 and is likely to play a key role in the heart of defence this season.
During an eight-year spell in Welsh football with the New Saints (TNS), he picked up European experience by playing in Champions League qualifying matches.
