Craig Dawson - Career in Pictures


West Ham United's newest signing Craig Dawson has completed a dream journey from non-league to Premier League.

The versatile, experienced defender kicked-off his career with Radcliffe Borough in the Northern Premier League before working his way up through the divisions with hometown club Rochdale and arriving in the Premier League with West Bromwich Albion in 2011.

While with the Baggies, Dawson was capped by England U21s and Team GB by current West Ham first-team coach Stuart Pearce and made 184 Premier League appearances.

After a season with Watford, the 30-year-old has joined the Hammers on a season-long loan and will continue his Premier League journey in Claret and Blue. Here, we look back on that career in ten pictures.
