Biographical Text

Robinson was playing local football for S.C. Vaux when he was given a full contract by Ipswich Town in November 1984, but his stay was a short one and returned to non-league football playing for the Vaux Breweries side.

He got a second chance at League level when signing for Leeds United in November 1985 and this time went on to make 27 league appearances for them.

Transferred to Doncaster Rovers in February 1987 for £5,000, he added a further 80 league games and five goals. His next stop was at West Bromwich Albion whom he joined in March 1989 for £80,000.

It proved to be stay of just five months during which time he only made one league appearance, before moving to Rotherham United for £40,000.

After over two years with the Millmoor outfit, and totalling 86 league appearances and two goals, Robinson signed for Peterborough United on a free transfer in December 1991.

In July 1993 after a further 47 league matches, Robinson moved to Exeter City for a reported fee of £25,000, making his first league start for the club in a 2-1 defeat at Brentford on the opening day of the season.

He remained at St James’ Park until returning to Yorkshire, on loan with Huddersfield Town in January 1994, but he was to only play two league games for them.

Robinson was released on a free transfer by Exeter and in 1995 appeared in one game for Scarborough, before later playing for Spennymoor United.
