Joshua George "Josh" Dawkin (born 16 January 1992) is an English-born Welsh footballer who plays as a midfielder for St Ives Town, having signed for them in the summer of 2016.
Born in St Ives, Cambridgeshire, Dawkin has represented Wales at under-17 and 19 levels. Although born in England, he qualifies to play for Wales through his mother:
"My mum was born in Wales, though she only lived there for a couple of years because my grandad was in the RAF."
He made his professional debut for Norwich City aged 17, on 6 October 2009, in a match against Gillingham in the Football League Trophy.
Dawkin began a one-month loan spell with Conference National side Cambridge United on 9 March 2012.
On 12 July 2012 Dawkin joined Conference National side Braintree Town F.C. along with former Norwich City F.C. defender Sam Habergham.
After a spell with Cambridge City, Dawkin joined Southern Premier Division side Dunstable Town in the summer of 2014 following their promotion the previous season.
Spells followed for Biggleswade Town and St Neots Town, with whom Dawkin spent the second half of the 2015-16 season. In the summer of 2016 he moved to newly promoted Southern Premier Division side St Ives Town.
Dawkin expressed his strengths as a footballer as "running with the ball and dribbling", adding "I'm nowhere near as good as him but I'd like to model myself on Cristiano Ronaldo - I'd like to try and play like him."
