Originally from Shepparton, Dickson, who played as a utility, averaged 16 disposals a game in his first two league seasons. He played ten games in 1984 and in a win over the Sydney Swans kicked four goals. After appearing in the first round of the 1985 season, he didn't play senior football for the rest of the year and returned in 1986 to play nine games.
Having been released by Melbourne, Dickson was a member of Brisbane's inaugural squad and took part in their historic opening VFL fixture, against North Melbourne. Playing as a back pocket defender, Dickson had 19 disposals.
He remained in Queensland after his league career finished and is now the CEO of City of Gold Coast Council. Dickson is currently under investigation by Queensland's Crime and Corruption Commission for negotiating the sale of a Council property to companies controlled by the current Mayor (Tom Tate) whilst Mr Tate was negotiating his contract and salary (see Mar 9 News.com.au article Tate claims could jeopardise land sale)
