Dawson delighted with ever-present status

Defender started all 38 games in Premier League

CRAIG Dawson cut a proud figure following the conclusion of the 2015/16 Premier League season.

The defender started all 38 league games for Albion, a feat only equalled by club captain Darren Fletcher.

Dawson can look back fondly on what has been an impressive individual campaign having also scored four times away from his favoured position of centre-half.

“To play 38 games is a great achievement for me,” said Dawson.

“I feel as though I have had a good season and that I have performed well in those 38 games.

“The Premier League is the hardest league in the world and it takes some effort to play right the way through the season.

“We have done well as a squad but there are improvements needed for next season.

“I have been playing out of position at right back but I have enjoyed it and I feel as though I have learnt a lot.”
