Biographical Text

Dean first broke into the Exeter City first team in October 2003 against Conference side Woking and quickly established himself as a first-team regular playing 17 games that season and scoring two goals.

He spent five seasons in the Conference City, playing 150 games and scoring 18 goals in that time. One of his most memorable strikes in a Grecians shirt came in December 2004 when he the ball into the net from 50 yards out in an FA Cup second round match at home to Doncaster. That proved a pivotal strike, in the City’s history, as City won the match 2-1 to set up a money-spinning third-round tie away at Old Trafford which helped save the club from liquidation.

In the 2007/08 season, Dean played 52 times as the Grecians were promoted back to the Football League via the Conference play-off final. The following year, Dean played 46 games and scored six goals as the club secured back-to-back promotions with a second-place finish in League Two.

That summer, Dean left for Derby. He played two seasons for the Rams before joining Crystal Palace and winning promotion to the Premier League with the Eagles in 2013.

After one season in England’s top flight, Dean joined Bolton Wanderers. He spent three seasons at the Lancashire club before returning home to St James Park on 27 June 2017 when he signed a three-year contract with Exeter City.
