Dewsbury sign international winger

Dewsbury have completed the signing of Scotland international Davey Dixon from Keighley.

The 22-year-old has signed a one-year deal after spending the past four seasons with the Cougars, making over 50 appearances and scoring 16 tries, after graduating through the academy systems at Warrington and Castleford.

He has also picked up three caps for Scotland and is set to feature for the Bravehearts in the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers.

Davey has a lot of potential to succeed at this level and possibly higher, Dewsbury coach Lee Greenwood told the Rams website. “He is young but has played regularly against men and done well.

“He is an accomplished finisher and is happy to come in and help the team go forward. Despite representing Scotland this Autumn, he will slot straight into the start of our pre-season which says a lot about his character and determination to do well here.

“He knows the challenges of stepping up a division and the competition he will have, but he is confident in his own ability which is good.”
