NEW SIGNING: Robins catch Robinson

North Shields Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder David Robinson ahead of the 2020/2021 season.

David Robinson joins the club from Seaham Red Star where he wore the captains armband after arriving from Newcastle Benfield in March of 2019.

Prior to his move to Benfield, Robinson captained Blyth AFC to the Division 2 title as captain playing almost every game for The Braves who dissolved in 2018.

The central midfielder is labeled as a great leader and having a strong presence in the middle of the pitch. Robinson joins the team alongside new signing Dan Wilson from Seaham.

Speaking on his arrival to North Shields, Sean Mulligan caught up with Robinson about why he chose North Shields FC

I initially spoke with Woody (Anthony Woodhouse) and he spoke to me about the clubs plans for the season ahead and we discussed my ambitions and we were on the same page, so I knew it was where I wanted to play this coming season.

What are your aims going to be for the season ahead?

My personal aim is to play well, stay fit and get as much game time as possible. They will be a lot of healthy competition for places with the squad the management are putting together especially in my position, which is always good to get the best out of the squad.

Going ahead to next season, what do you hope the team can achieve?

As for team goals, I believe they finished fourth in the league when the season got suspended, so I don’t see why we couldn’t be challenging around the top for the coming season and to hopefully have a good run in the FA competitions as well.

Assistant Manager, Anthony Woodhouse, spoke about the arrival of David Robinson;

Robbo is a player who we’ve admired for many years. He can play in the middle of the pitch or higher up as a 10. He will no doubt add bite, work rate and he will score goals from midfield for us.

We’re delighted to have him involved with us and add more competition to an already strong midfield.

Welcome to the club David! #HowayTheRobins
