One ‘Robbo’ puts pen to paper

Whilst it’s not the ‘Robbo’ most fans were hoping Blues would be announcing today, the club have announced that club captain Paul Robinson has signed a new deal to extend his initial 1 one month trial in to a sixth year, making him the longest serving player currently at the club.

Robinson, 38, who last season assisted Blues under 23’s with Richard Beale, will still be assisting as a coach, however as yet it is not known which level he will help at. With Beale now assisting new appointment Lee Carsley with the under 23’s, and under 18’s match-day clashing with the first team, he may well find it difficult to balance playing and coaching. Robinson, however, may now be seen in more of a backup role as a player and his availability for other duties may increase.

Robbo has made a total of 171 appearances for Blues, 25 of which came in last season’s campaign.
