North Ferriby United’s new signing Matty Dixon told NLD’s Thomas Feaheny he can’t wait to start playing football for the National League side.
Dixon joins Steve Housham’s side after a spell at York City, he says the new boss played a role in him joining: “I knew Ferriby’s boss, I played under him at Gainsborough Trinity on loan, so I gave him a call and just saw what the options were, I know what he is about and he knows what I’m about and I played well under him before, I hope that happens again.”
The Villagers are putting up a fight to stay in the National League, Dixon believes it is down to the atmosphere that has been created in the dressing room: “We’ve got a great chance of staying up, I know the majority of the lads from my time in the youth team at Hull and the senior side at York, so I hope that means I can settle in quickly, at the end of the day it will be like a bunch of mates playing on a Saturday afternoon, hopefully that spirit will mean we stay up.”
Dixon admitted he had both good and bad memories from his time with the Minstermen: “I wasn’t too difficult to leave, I hadn’t played for a few months, I wanted to play, when I left Hull to join them I thought it would be a good move, I have mixed emotions on it, a year down the line I have a lot more experience, I think they will stay up and push on.”
