After taking over as Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson moved quickly to recruit one of his former charges, versatile defender Charles Dunne.

Comfortable at both left-back or as a left-sided central defender, Charles came through the youth ranks at Wycombe Wanderers.

Having spent a period on loan at Staines Town Charles made his senior debut for The Chairboys on 21st April ’12 as a late substitute against Charlton at The Valley.

For the next eighteen months Charles was a regular for Wycombe in League Two. Those last six months however were spent at Adams Park as a loanee with Dunne having been snapped up by Championship side Blackpool in August 2013 and immediately returned to Wycombe on a season long loan deal.

Sadly a broken leg suffered in an FA Cup tie against Preston North End meant the defender was unable to complete that full season.

Charles played regularly for the Seasiders in their 2014’15 Championship campaign but after their demotion began to feature more sporadically. A move to League Two Crawley Town in November 2015 gave him the opportunity of more regular first-team action, even more so when his initial one month deal was extended until the end of the season.

In the summer of 2016 Charles left Blackpool upon the expiry of his contract and joined Oldham Athletic on a short-term contract after a successful trial. One of Stephen Robinson’s first signings after taking charge of the club the pacy Dunne made a positive start for the Latics and quickly saw his deal extended until the end of 2016.

A further extension saw Charles signed up until the summer of 2017 but once again injury struck and he failed to appear beyond Boxing Day 2016 after suffering a pelvic injury.

Released by Oldham, Stephen Robinson brought the defender to Lanarkshire and upon proving his fitness signed a one year contract with the Steelmen, with the option of a further year.

It is fair to say Charles has had an eventful time in Scotland thus far, netting just minutes into his debut against Morton in the Betfred League Cup and being sent off twice inside the space of four days against Ross County and St Johnstone, both of which the club appealed.
