Signed on two-year deal from Charlton in June 2017, Dimi provided support for the U’s first choice keepers throughout his first season at the club, making seven appearances and keeping an impressive clean sheet on his full league debut.
Progressing through the Athletic youth system, he played regularly at Under-23 level before arriving at the Abbey. Dimi became the U’s regular no.1 shortly after the arrival of Colin Calderwood as Head Coach midway through the 2018/19 season, keeping a further six clean sheets during the final months of the campaign. A former Bulgarian Under-21 international who also captained his country’s Under-19 side, Dimi agreed an extension to his deal with United during the summer of 2018 and will remain at the club until June 2021. He kept another eight clean sheets throughout and before the curtailment of last season.
