Energy FC announced today that the club has re-signed Richard Dixon and Alex Dixon for the 2018 season, pending league and federation approval.
Alex Dixon was among the most consistent players on last season’s squad. He appeared in 33 matches, started 32, was third in minutes played (2,670) and goals scored (7). All seven of Dixon’s goals scored were scored from inside the box. Prior to joining Energy FC, he played 15 matches with the Jacksonville Armada (NASL) where he recorded two goals and an assist. He has experience in the Houston Dynamo academy and played collegiately at the University of North Carolina.
Richard Dixon appeared in 26 matches for the club and started 21. A veteran of nearly 80 games as a pro, he has spent time in the USL with the Charlotte Eagles and Saint Louis FC. Prior to turning pro, he played four seasons at West Florida University and earned Gulf South Conference Player of the Year honors in 2009 and 2012. He’s the only player in school history to be named a four-time NSCAA All-South Region team member.
The addition of Richard Dixon and Alex Dixon bring the number of players signed by Energy FC for the 2018 season to nine. They join forwards Miguel Gonzalez and Jonathan Brown; midfielders Juan Pablo Guzman, Jose Barril, Philip Rasmussen and defenders Kyle Hyland and Coady Andrews.
"The players we have re-signed offer an excellent foundation for our club in 2018," said Energy FC President Jeff Ewing. "Each of them provide a unique aspect to our team and all of them are active within our community. We're proud to have them as members of our club."
