Dixon joins Pilgrims

Loan move for young keeper.

Sunderland U21 goalkeeper Joel Dixon has joined Skrill Conference North side Boston United on a youth loan.

The 20-year-old has appeared on the bench for Sunderland twice this season, in the Capital One Cup quarter final against Chelsea and semi-final first leg against Manchester United.

Dixon, who has previously enjoyed loan spells with Workington AFC, joins the Pilgrims ahead of this weekend’s clash with Gloucester City at York Street.
