OKLAHOMA CITY – OKC Energy FC announced on Tuesday the club had re-signed Richard Dixon and Alex Dixon for the 2018 season, pending league and federation approval.
Alex Dixon finished third on Energy FC with seven goals in the 2017 USL regular season, and was among the league’s leaders in appearances (33) and minutes played (2,670). A 2015 USL Cup-winner with the Rochester Rhinos, Alex Dixon notched 38 key passes and two assists for Energy FC in his first season at the club.
A Jamaican international, Richard Dixon appeared in 26 matches in his first season with Energy FC. Formerly of Saint Louis FC, the 27-year-old has made more than 80 appearances in his USL career, and in the 2017 season recorded 64 interceptions and won 51 of 63 tackles, an 81 percent success rate.
"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."
Richard Dixon and Alex Dixon’s return to the club brings the number of players signed by Energy FC for the 2018 season to nine. The duo joins forwards Miguel Gonzalez and Jonathan Brown; midfielders Juan Pablo Guzman, Jose Barril, Philip Rasmussen and defenders Kyle Hyland and Coady Andrews.
