The details


Ian Robert Dawes (born 22 February 1963) is an English former professional footballer, born in Croydon, Surrey, who made more than 200 appearance in the Football League for each of his two clubs, Queens Park Rangers and Millwall, playing as a left back.

Dawes made his debut for Queens Park Rangers on 27 March 1982 against Rotherham United, and went on to score three goals from 229 league games, including a remarkable 198 consecutive appearances between 1982 and 1986.

He was a very reliable and efficient defender and possibly unlucky not to receive international recognition due to the excellent form of Kenny Sansom during the same time period. Dawes was a member of the 1986 Football League Cup Final team.

Dawes left QPR for Millwall in 1988 (the club felt his performances would suffer following the removal of the "plastic pitch" at Loftus Road), yet he played 258 times for Millwall and was their Player of the Year in 1989–90, before moving to non-League Bromley after having a knee operation which he never fully recovered from.

He later coached at Charlton Athletic and Millwall before managing non-league clubs Carshalton Athletic and Dorking, and two spells as manager of Redhill, from 2002 to 2004 and from October 2005 to October 2006.
