Club career

Previously, he played for Jurong FC, Woodlands Wellington FC, Young Lions and Persitara Jakarta Utara.

In 2001, Dickson was suspended for three months and fined S$1,000 for punching Home United's Harun Juma'at. He fell out with head coach V. Sundramoorthy after serving out his ban and was transferred to Woodlands Wellington in 2002.

Dickson returned to S-league to play for Home United after an unsuccessful season with Persitara Jakarta Utara.

International career

Fast and aggressive in attack, Itimi provides width and decent flair to a Singapore national side midfield that lacks the technical capability.

Although he was born in Nigeria, he received Singapore citizenship under the Foreign Sports Talent Scheme in 2004. Itimi was in the Singapore squad that won the Tiger Cup regional football championship in 2004.

He was given a 6-month ban from representing Singapore when he was absent from training with the national team. He later bounced back from the ban by playing well in league and was subsequently made part of the AFF Championship winning side.
