Andy Robinson leaves Leeds

The 31 year old midfielder has been short of first team opportunities for the past year or so, his last league start coming in May 2009. After joining the club in 2008 Robinson made 50 appearances for Leeds, scoring seven goals.

The former Swansea man made very few appearances for Leeds last year but nonetheless played a vital part in our promotion. Some of you may remember his wonder goal against Millwall for Tranmere Rovers, where Robinson spent the end of last season on loan. This goal ensured Leeds stayed above Millwall and in the second automatic promotion place. Had we been able to beat Charlton on that day we would have secured promotion without the last day drama.

Robinson was told to find a new club at the start of the season and he will now be able to join someone new on the 1st of January. The club says it is a chance for Andy to further his career.

Despite being surplus to requirements, I’m sure he’ll be missed (at least by the pie shops of Leeds).
