A young forward, who made early progress in being included in the Republic of Ireland squad by manager Steve Staunton at the age of 16 and was on the bench as a substitute against Chile in a friendly international in May 2006. Indeed, Terry was awarded the Republic of Ireland's Under-17 Player of the Year 2006 trophy.
Born of an Irish mother from County Cavan and a father born in Wood Green, who allegedly played for both Arsenal and Spurs' junior teams at the age of 15, Terry was invited to play for local kids side Alexandra Palace by former Spurs player Garry Brooke, but at the age of eight, he was taken to Tottenham by Brooke, where Dixon worked his way through the junior teams at the club.
Had his first serious knee injury at the age of 14 and worked through his injury at the club, who nurtured him through his recovery. A strapping young man at 16, who played 11 games in the Under-18 side in 2005-06 after joining the club as an Academy player on 1st July 2006 and was signed as a professional when he reached the age of 17 in January 2007.
In August 2006, he suffered a dislocated knee that wiped out that season for the youngster, but he returned to training before the end of the season with the hope that he would be ready for the 2007-08 campaign. However, another dislocation of his knee cap in an Academy game in September 2007 set him back, just when Charlton Athletic wee considering a loan move for him.
After extensive discussions with his family and all parties involved, Dixon was sadly released by Spurs in March 2008 with those injuries preventing him making the progress at the club that was hoping for the talented young striker, who had been compared to Wayne Rooney in terms of style and ability.
Some unaccredited comments, supposedly from the Dublin Evening Herald, would indicate that his contract may have been paid up at the end of February and with Dixon feeling that Spurs might have done better by him, he was mulling over the options of other clubs expressing an interest to see him through his rehabilitation that he hoped would see him play as a professional again.
In February 2009, after working with a Belgian knee specialist, Dixon signed a three year deal with West Ham United. After featuring in eight reserve games, the striker had his contract cancelled by mutual consent in April 2010 and he next turned up playing for newly promoted League Two side Stevenage, with whom he played on non-contract terms initially. however, with injuries still bugging him, Stevenage released him in January 2011, allowing him to join nearby non-league side Ware, staying until March, when he missed some training sessions and departed for Tooting & Mitcham. and then
There were rumours that he might join MLS side Colorado Rapids, but the August 2011 transfer window saw Dixon sign for Bradford City, but he was immediately loaned out to AFC Halifax. On his return to the Bantams, having only played on reserve match and three youth matches, Terry asked to go on loan again and he was off South to Dover Athletic. Enjoying his spell there, he did not wish to return and his loan move was made permanent in 2011.
Suffered with depression and
was drinking heavily and this lead to him dropping down
the football pyramid, but was part of Dunstable Town's
promotion winning team, before playing further down the
ladder while working nights for a tunnelling company.
