Background: Spotted by scout Derrick Jones playing in the Slough District School trials. CofE Player of the Season 1998/99 and went on to play for Wanderers' Youth Team as a schoolboy during the FA Youth Cup run of 1999/2000 which ended in defeat at Newcastle United. Signed as a scholar the next season and although injury held him back still managed to gain his Reserve Team debut in September 2000. Gradually returned to full fitness during the 2001/2 season and finished top scorer for the Under 19's with 16 goals and enjoyed another FA Youth Cup run that ended in the 5th Round at Barnsley
After at a total of 40 goals for the Youth Team in three seasons Dixon joined the First Team on the pre-season Scottish tour in July 2002 and was eventually given his Football League debut the following month when he came on for the final few minutes of the home game with Northampton Town. Went on to make a major breakthrough when he started for the first time against QPR on Boxing Day 2003 after Craig Faulconbridge was taken ill. Scored a goal and then scored another two in his next three appearances. In February 2003 it was announced he had been rewarded with a professional contract until June 2005.
Unfortunately a circulation problem in his legs was highlighted at the start of the 2003/4 season which kept him from making any further impact in the First Team that season. Was loaned out to Crawley Town at the end of December 2003 but his time there was largely unsuccessful. However, during the 2004/5 season he sent out on a further loan spell with Aldershot Town and made a massive impact with nine goals in twelve appearances. Stories of his release at the end of his contract that was due to expire in June 2005 were subsequently rubbished by Wanderers Manager John Gorman. Read more. His contract was renewed until June 2006 but the 2005/6 season has again seen Dixon unable to command a place in the starting line-up under John Gorman and talk of a move to Aldershot on a permanent basis heated up again during the January 2006 transfer window. This culminated in a loan move to The Shots being agreed on 30th January 2006 that saw Dixon remain with the Conference side until the end of the season. The Shots subsequently offered Wanderers 5,000 for the services of the player on a permanent basis but Dixon opted to accept the offer of another one year extension to his contract at Adams Park.
Returned to the Wanderers First Team during the opening half of the 2007/2008 season under new Manager Paul Lambert, making 15 further appearances and starting his first League game for for more then four years in tje 2-1 victory at Hereford United on 12 September 2009. Then after further interest from Aldershot Town, eventually made the move away from Wycombe permanent in January 2007, the day after playing his final game for the Wanderers in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Adams Park in the 1st leg of the Semi-Final of the Football League Cup.
