James Dixon agrees Ravens deal

By Rhyd Cole | 14/05/2013

Bridgend Ravens can confirm that James Dixon (Outside Half) has joined the club from Carmarthen Quins ahead of the 2013/14 season.

27 year old Dixon has joined after a successful spell at Carmarthen Quins, whom he played 26 games for during the 2013/13 season, scoring 96 points in the process. He is no stranger to Ravens colours though, having represented the team on permit from Swansea previously, including the 85 v 3 win against Felinfoel in Division One West.

On joining the Ravens, Maesteg product Dixon commented, "I'm delighted to have become part of such a great club for the coming season. The Ravens have blooded a fair few youngsters over the past few seasons, and have almost been victims of their own success with a good number progressing to play in the PRO12."

When asked about the season ahead, Dixon outlined his hopes, stating, "I'm hoping we can be very competitive next season in all competitions, and with all going well, I don't see any reason why we can't challenge for silverware. As a bare minimum, we want to establish the Ravens as the best premiership team in the region".

On the signing of Dixon, Ravens' Head Coach Ben Rose said, "He is proven as one of the best outside halves in the league whilst at Swansea and Carmarthen Quins. His wealth of experience will be great for Lewis Williams and the younger players around him."

With the signings of Owen and George now confirmed, as well as the re-signings of a number of last year's squad, he was bullish about the Ravens' chances in the premiership next season.

"These signings prove that the club is serious about its premiership status and show that the club is aiming to be more than just competitive in next season's league. I believe the development of the young players will be enhanced with the signings of these players".
