THEO RETURNS | Robinson delighted to be back at Blues

3 February 2017

Striker hoping for impact similar to first spell...

Deadline Day signing Theo Robinson is thrilled to be back at Southend United and ready to help Blues’ push for promotion.

Robinson was previously part of Steve Tilson’s Blues squad in 2009 that finished five points off a play-off place in eighth.

He scored seven goals in the run-in whilst on loan from Watford from January until the end of the season, and he is hoping to go one better in his second stint at Roots Hall.

“It’s amazing [to be back],” he said.

“It’s a good feeling and all the lads have been very welcoming, the staff and the manager as well.

“I just want to get the shirt on and go and play football now.

“Last time I was here towards the end of the season we were five points off the play-off places.

“Hopefully with my experience of that we can kick on and get into the play-offs.”

The 28-year-old striker moved from Lincoln City two minutes before Tuesday’s deadline, where he had been integral for the Imps’ FA Cup exploits.

Robinson said it was a crazy day getting the deal sorted, but once the prospect of a move materialised, there were no second thoughts.

“It was a crazy deadline day. 

“Getting the phone call and getting everything sorted out, it’s been a mad whirlwind but I’m just happy to be here and I’m just concentrating on my football.

“It’s been a great FA Cup run for me. I wish Lincoln all the best in the future and getting promoted but this is football and coming here was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.”
