Nuneaton Town: Leicester City loan winger Adam Dawson to Boro

Dawson started this season out on loan with League One side Notts County

Nuneaton Town manager Liam Daish has made his first signing since taking charge of Boro a fortnight ago by bringing in Leicester City winger Adam Dawson on a month's loan deal.

Dawson, 21, who began his career with Wigan Athletic, moved to Leicester after an initial trial in October 2013.

Adam Dawson's adventures in football
After asking to be released from his contract by Wigan Athletic in November 2012, Dawson went into non-league with Bacup Borough, FC United of Manchester, Barrow and Nelson before getting another chance in League football at Leicester. He signed a one-year deal with the Foxes this summer.

Meanwhile, experienced midfielder Lee Fowler, 31, has been rewarded with a new deal until the end of the season.

The former Coventry City player arrived on non-contract terms on 5 September.

The much-travelled Fowler, who spent the first half of last season with Kidderminster Harriers, was with Welsh Premier outfit Cefn Druids when he was first brought in by then Boro boss Brian Reid.

Fowler made his debut the following day, being substituted at half-time with his side 3-0 down at Torquay.

After Boro went on to lose 4-0, it turned out to be Reid's last game in charge as he was sacked three days later.

Boro then went and picked up four points from their next two games, but they have since lost their last four, two of them under Daish.

They now sit just one place - and two points - above bottom club AFC Telford, ahead of this Saturday's home game with Lincoln City.
