STUNNER! Dion Dublin sensationally returns to Cambridge Utd

Dion Dublin has sensationally returned to Cambridge United.

Dublin has been appointed a director of the newly promoted League One club.

The U's have announced that the 52-year-old, who scored 73 goals in 202 appearances during a four-year stay at the start of his senior career and played his part in back-to-back promotions, has joined the board subject to formal ratification by the EFL.

Dublin, who left the Abbey Stadium for Manchester United in a £1million deal in August 1992, told the club's official website: “It is a genuine honour to join the board of Cambridge United.

“It is a club I love and I have always had a special relationship with the fans. I have followed the team's fortunes closely since I left and promotion last season was hard earned and hugely deserved. I have no doubt the team will be competitive in League One.

“As a director, I am looking forward to playing an active part in making the club even stronger."

Dublin also played for the likes of Leicester City, Norwich City and Coventry City, before playing 186 games with Aston Villa. He also won four England caps.
