James Dillnutt Player Profile
Debut: Carshalton Athletic (H, 5-0), 24/11/1997
James Dillnutt came through our EFCO scheme and was thrown in the deep end in 1998; handed the task to keep Shearer and Co out when Newcastle United came to town in the FA Cup.
He, along with the rest of the team, excelled and took the Premier League side to a replay, where they eventually went down 2-1. Dillnutt made a few more appearances for Boro’, but failed to break through.
Richard Hill took over from Paul Fairclough and deemed Dillnutt surplus to requirements. He left the club to sign for Hitchin, before moves to the likes of Boreham Wood, Biggleswade Town, Arlesey and Hemel Hempstead.
