EPL: Andy Dawson Extends Contract at Hull City

Brian RhodesSenior Analyst IJanuary 23, 2009

Andy Dawson has extended his contract at the KC Stadium. The contract will see him at the East Yorkshire club until 2011.

Phil Brown the Hull City boss said of the talented left back on the Official Club Web site 'We've agreed a new contract with Andy Dawson and there is a good feeling around the club about that.

That's because he's come through League Two, League One and the Championship with Hull City. He's now playing in the Premier League and I think this is a fantastic deal for him.'

Dawson, is joined in playing in all of the four professional English divisions for Hull City, by Tiger's Captain Ian Ashbee, goalkeeper Boaz Myhill, and Ryan France—a feat only achieved previously by Sean Davis (Fulham) and David Wetherall (Bradford City).

Dawson had a solid start for the Tigers in the Premiership, notably with a display against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium that nullified the flying England player Theo Walcott in Hull City's famous 2-1 victory.

Unfortunately for Dawson, he sustained an injury after 10 minutes in the 3-0 away victory against West Bromich Albion. The left back will be hoping that he can help his club get back to winning ways with the the up coming FA Cup Fourth Round tie against Millwall this Saturday.
