Played : 2007-08 (on loan from Barnsley)
Appearances : 2

Rob was signed in October as cover for our injury crisis in central defence. He had been at Barnsley since 2004 making sporadic appearances in the first team (8 in total) and having loan spells at Scarborough and Halifax.
As things turned out we didn't really need him but he looked alright in his two brief
Rob went to Grimsby almost immediately afterwards, the first of three separate loan spells there. He finally signed permanently in January 2009 and has stayed with them following relegation to the Conference. He has also played for the England C team recently.
