Springwell, County Durham born left back Tommy Dawson began his football career with Washington Colliery in 1922 and played for Chopwell Institute in 1923 before joining Second Division Stoke, making his Football League debut at Southampton in September 1924. Always a fringe player during eight seasons at The Victoria Ground, he made 6 appearances during their 1926-27 Third Division (North) Championship campaign after their relegation the previous season, and after 24 first team appearances over the prolonged period he headed south to join Clapton Orient in 1932.

He made 20 appearances during his single season at Lea Bridge which saw The O’s struggle to avoid re-election, before returning to the north east to join Gateshead in the 1933 close season. His career at Gateshead was remarkable not for the 20 appearances he made during their 1933-34 campaign but for the final two matches in which he played in February and April 1936 in which he appeared in goal, both wins, by when he had become Gateshead’s trainer, impressively keeping a clean sheet in his final match against Rochdale.
