A strange Spurs career has been had by Simon Dawkins, having originally been released at the end of the 2008-09 season, before being re-signed by Spurs to train with them to regain his fitness.  This was successful and they offered him a contract until 2013.

A strongly built striker, who has the ability to bring others into play, Simon entered the Tottenham Academy as a teenager and signed as a scholar in 2004, before making the professional grade the following year.  Had a loan spell at Leyton Orient, before returning to the club, only to be released.

It was a trying time for Dawkins trying to find a new club and his journey took him far and wide.  He had a trial at RSC Strasbourg in France, then he came back to Spurs on a non-contract basis to prove his fitness.  Another trial in the summer of 2010 was unsuccessful - this time at Glasgow Celtic - before he tried his luck again on trial, at AFC Bournemouth.  However, as injury in a reserve game saw the Cherries lose interest and so Simon returned "home" to Spurs to seek his fitness and he was offered a new deal in 2011 becoming an older player among the Spurs XI squad. 

He obviously impressed the management enough to give him a squad number, but he immediately went out on loan to Tottenham's partner club in America, San Jose Earthquakes, where he won good reviews for his performances during the 2011 season and although he failed to get a contract with Dutch club FC Twente Enschede in January 2102, he returned to California for the 2012 season for another spell with the Earthquakes. 

Since returning to America, his performances as a midfielder have earned good reviews. So much so, that on his return to England at Christmas 2012, he was signed on a loan deal until the end of the season with Aston Villa.  Only making two substitute appearances for the Midlands club as they avoided relegation, he came back to Spurs, with his future still unclear.

Derby County then took him on loan for three months in the 2013-14 season, signing him on a permanent deal in January 2014.  While Derby missed out in the play-off final for a place in the Premier League, Dawkins went on to make his debut for Jamaica at the end of May 2014 and scored his first goal for his country against Egypt in his third international in a week.

What they said about Simon Dawkins
Derby County manager Steve McLaren on signing Dawkins on loan ...  19.10.2013 (Daily Star)

"I know Simon very well. I very nearly took him to Holland with me when I was at FC Twente and he was at Queens Park Rangers for a couple of weeks when I was there. I know what he can do.  He has come in and adjusted and there might be a possibility of doing something with him. We are looking at that."
