Canadian youngster Patrick Dickinson hailed from Vancouver and was a Canadian youth international when he travelled to Hull in 1995 to visit relatives and sought a trial with Terry Dolan’s becalmed Tigers. Dickinson was recruited into City’s YTS setup and made his debut against Doncaster Rovers in March 1997.
During the close season Dolan was jettisoned and replaced by Mark Hateley, who saw promise in the young Canadian and gave him three consecutive starts at right back during August. He dropped out of the first eleven and the subsequent loan signing of Matt Hocking shut down further opportunities.
Dickinson returned to Canada in the 1998 close season, joining North Amercian League side Vancouver 86ers. He also went on to make 9 appearances for the Canada under-20 side and 8 appearances for the Canada under-21 side.
