Former Peterite, Sri Lanka Under-20 captain and Sevens player Kevin Dixon has decided to don the jersey at CH and FC during the upcoming new inter club rugby season.

Affectionately nicknamed Kutti, Dixon was one of the prized products to come out of St. Peter’s College whose team he also captained while playing as full back and centre in 2015 the year they also won the inter-school Sevens title after a lapse of many years under the guidance of Scottish coach Ben McDougall.

Dixon also had the honour of captaining the Sri Lanka Under-20 Sevens team at the Asian Championships and led them to the Cup championship title for the first time in the island’s rugby history in 2016.

He had the rare distinction of being the only Sri Lankan junior International to captain the country in successive years and was deputy to Omalka Gunaratne in the traditional 15-a-side game which became runners-up to Hong Kong at the Asian Under-20 tournament in 2015.

After leaving school Dixon joined Havelocks and later crossed over to CR and FC to enhance in career in club rugby.

Speaking exclusively to Sunday Observer the unassuming Dixon said: I am glad to sign up for CH and FC at the upcoming rugby season. I’ll give off my very best for the team to achieve success.”
