Pools sign Joel Dixon

4 June 2023

Hartlepool United are delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Joel Dixon.

Joel joins on a permanent deal, leaving league one side Bolton Wanderers. 

The 29-year-old comes with a vast amount of experience and will undoubtedly form a key part of John Askey’s squad for next season.

Born in Middlesbrough, Dixon began his career with Sunderland and actually had a short loan spell with Pools in 2015 working alongside Scott Flinders.

He played every single game for Barrow in a title-winning national league campaign in 2019/20 and then made 47 appearances for the club in league two the following year, which earned him his move to league one side Bolton Wanderers. 

The six foot four shot-stopper has most recently made 24 appearances for Bolton in league one including a clean sheet and a penalty save in his debut against, at the time, Championship side Barnsley in the Carabao Cup. 

Joel Dixon added: 

I am delighted to join Hartlepool. I know how much of a great club this is from my previous spell and after speaking to the Gaffer, I know we are going to be going in the right direction. I can’t wait to get started. 

John Askey commented: 

I’m very pleased to get Joel over the line. A previous national league winner with plenty of experience in both league two and league one. He knows the area and fits in well with what we are looking for. 

Dixon’s move is subject to medical.
