Robinson hopes to extend his playing career


Robinson, due to turn 36 in August, has a contract with the Clever Boys that is set to expire in June.

“My body is still responding very well to regular intensive training which is reason enough for me to continue playing.

“I am hopeful that I can continue next season though I have adopted a strategic plan of looking at my future one season at a time.

“While I still want to play, I am also aware that my contract here at Wits ends in June and so it is up to the club to decide if I will stay on. But I genuinely still want to continue as a player,” says Robinson.

The last time that the Pietermaritzburg born keeper played was last season when he featured in two games. He has yet to get game time this season as he fills third place in the pecking order behind first choice Moeneeb Josephs and his deputy Sean Roberts.

“Although I haven’t been playing much, I am still in good shape because I am always positive at training. This season I have suffered a major setback in that I was out for about seven months after I broke my arm in training,” he says.

Sensing he is approaching the twilight of his career, Robison, who has also played for Moroka Swallows, Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United, has moved towards getting coaching credentials.

“I am already doing the Safa Level 2 coaching course and I hope to finish it soon,” he discloses.
