Biographical Text

Anton Robinson started his career with Millwall and appeared just twice in the colours of Exeter City. After a spell at Weymouth he returned to the Football League with AFC Bournemouth. 

Anton joined Millwall as a trainee in 2002 and made his first-team debut in the FA Cup against Wolves in January 2005. Then, after being released in May 2005, he had short spells at Eastleigh and Margate before signing non-contract forms for Exeter City in December 2005. Scoring on his debut against Bishop’s Stortford in the FA Trophy on 17 December 2005, Anton played once more as a substitute at Aldershot on 2 January 2006. He then left City and, in February 2006, was playing for Eastbourne Borough followed by Fisher Athletic and Grays Athletic.

Anton’s career took an upward turn when he joined Weymouth in March 2007 from where, after making 85 Appearances and scoring 16 goals, he progressed into the Football League with AFC Bournemouth in January 2009. He had also played twice for England C during his time with the Terras.

Anton was to make 117 appearances for Bournemouth in two-and-a-half seasons as the Cherries were promoted from League 2 before reaching the League 1 play-offs. He subsequently moved to Huddersfield Town in August 2011 and appeared thirty times as the club was promoted from League 1. Thereafter Anton only played once for the Terriers and, following loans at Gillingham and Coventry, his professional career - now increasingly dogged by injury - came to an end with his release from Huddersfield in May 2014.       

In 2023 Anton was describing himself as a self-employed football consultant who had been involved in recruitment at AFC Bournemouth as well as running property and investment businesses. He was also chief scout at Southend United when former teammate Mark Molesley was manager.
