Julian Andrew Dicks was born on August 8, 1968 in Bristol, England. He played for Birmingham City, West Ham United and Liverpool.
A notorious hardman, Dicks' nickname was "The Terminator". He was also an accomplished penalty taker and free-kick expert.
Dicks was a crowd favourite at West Ham and had two spells at Upton Park. In total he played 262 league games for the Hammers, and scored 50 goals.
In between his spells at West Ham he spent one season at Liverpool. He has the honour of being the last Liverpool player to score in front of the standing Spion Kop in a 1-0 win against Ipswich Town near the end of the 1993-94 season.
After retiring as a footballer, Dicks took up golf and soon turned professional, but was forced to give this career up due to his knee injury.
