  • Signed For Dundee United

    Dillon played for hometown club Andromeda SC and Plano Senior High School as a youngster and was named the Gatorade National Boys Soccer Player of the Year in his senior year before going on to play for Notre Dame in the collegiate system. During this time he was capped at U18 and U20 level for the United States.

In his first season, Dillon won the Rookie of the Year award. On August 10, 2017, he was transferred to Orlando City.

  • Injuries forced Head Coach Robbie Neilson into making two changes from the side that defeated Queen of the South last week. Calum Butcher hadn’t recovered from his groin injury and Jamie Robson was also ruled out due to the eye injury he sustained at Palmerston. That meant there was a debut for new signing Dillon Powers in midfield with skipper Mark Reynolds taking over at left-back. On the bench were Peter Pawlett and Osman Sow back from injury and Kilmarnock respectively with the week’s other new signing defender Kieran Freeman also a substitute. Of course, it was just a relief for all traveling Arabs that the game went ahead after Willie Collum gave the pitch the thumbs up 90 minutes before kick-off. Indeed, the surface was in good order considering the torrential rain that had ruled out so many other games.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 1 - 1 Partick Th

    After forcing a corner inside the opening 20 seconds, the Tangerines enjoyed most of the early possession, but it was Partick who spurned a glaring opportunity in the ninth minute. After Paul Watson miscued a headed clearance, Zak Rudden had clear space to drive into the box. He squared the ball for ex United forward Brian Graham seven yards out, however Benjamin Siegrist spread himself brilliantly to make a vital save. Three minutes later, after more Partick pressure, Darren Brownlie crossed for Tam O’Ware whose close-range header might have found the net had it not been straight at Siegrist. In the 17th minute the hosts created their first clear opportunity after Liam Smith and Rakish Bingham combined down the right. The latter sent in a low ball which Lawrence Shankland swiped at before it fell to Ian Harkes whose turn and shot was deflected behind. There wasn’t long to wait for the opener however, and when it did it was a thing of beauty. Mark Reynolds, deployed at left back for the second successive game, found himself in an advanced position down the flank and his cut back was only hacked clear to the edge of the box. Waiting in the perfect position was Dillon Powers who killed the ball before firing in a vicious right foot curler into the top corner, which left goalkeeper Scott Fox rooted. Thereafter, despite both sides trying to push forward, defences stayed on top as the game reached half time with United enjoying a slender lead.
