Jabba's Comments

After being rejected by Villa and having a short spell with Carlisle, David Robinson must have been hoping for a better time at Leeds, but he only played 5 games for the club. His move to Southend finally saw things go right for him: with over 300 games for United, he became a firm favorite with the fans, and stayed on as groundsman at Roots Hall when he retired.

Robbo (Pete) says: As this man's grandson and living in Southend, I can vouch for this. Regrettably he died in 1986 aged 86. The family are very proud of 'Robbo' and have various memorabilia from his time as a Pro. He joined SUFC from Leeds in 1928 and played 317 games until forced to hang up his boots due to injury in 1940. His sister is still very much alive and living in Carlisle.
