Bio Extra

Top scorer and player of the year in 98/99, Dunn looked to be the perfect example of the rewards that can be reaped if a club perseveres with a youth policy. He netted his first senior goal against Queen of the South and took great confidence from that, eventually finishing his first full season with 14 goals. However, his form then suffered, and he eventually found himself behind the likes of McLean, Lindau, Shaw and McGrillen and was allowed to join Airdrie in March 2001 in search of first team football.
