Date Of Birth 02/11/1987
Hometown Ballymoney, Northern Ireland, UK
Ballymoney native Andrew Dickson enters his eleventh year as a Belfast Giants goaltender.
‘Dicko’ is a beloved figure among the Teal Army, and now finds himself among the longest tenured Giants in club history, with four Elite League titles and three Challenge Cups to his name.
As is often said, the importance of Dickson cannot be measured by stats and appearances.
The long-time backup netminder does much of his hard work behind closed doors in practice, and his willingness to go the extra mile in team preparations has also endeared him to scores of Belfast Giants players who have played in the city.
Beginning his hockey journey by playing in local inline leagues, Dickson spent time in the NIHL (formerly the English National League) with the Invicta Dynamos, posting a .912 save percentage through 19 games played in 2010-11, before becoming a Giant on a permanent basis.
Dickson has demonstrated his ability to get the job done when called upon, most recently securing an OT win over the Sheffield Steelers as the Giants closed out the 21-22 regular season at the SSE Arena back in April.
