73 Peter Robinson

Position : Right back

Played : 1984-5

Appearances : 12

Goals : 0

The latest attempt to solve the right back problem, Peter was making a League comeback after almost 5 years away. He started out at Burnley in the late 70s but was sold for £35,000 to Sparta Rotterdam in 1980. After two years in Holland he returned to England but with non-league Blyth Spartans and he had been there nearly 3 years when we signed him.

Peter was really a centre half playing out of position so wasn't over-impressive and wasn't kept on for 1985-6. Instead he began a three year stint with Darlington interrupted by a strange loan out to Halifax in his first season. He returned to Blyth Spartans in 1988 then moved on to Whitley Bay where he became a hero after scoring in their defeat of Preston in the FA Cup Second Round ,Dec 1989. That of course meant a return to Spotland for Peter in the next round.
