Jake Signs

Jake Robinson, Welcome to Woodside

Worthing Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of prolific forward Jake Robinson.

Manager Adam Hinshelwood has secured the services of a former teammate, who spent last season helping Dartford to fourth place in National League South.

Robinson, 35, started his career at Brighton & Hove Albion and roomed his new boss when he travelled to Middlesbrough with the first team squad for the first time as a 16-year-old.

He became Albion’s youngest ever scorer three weeks later in a cup match against Forest Green, a record he still holds to this day.

After dropping out of league football he became a prolific goalscorer in non-league with Whitehawk, Hemel Hemstead and most notably Billericay, where during the 2017/18 season he hit 57 goals, including a strike from inside his own half to secure a win at Dulwich Hamlet.

The front man becomes Adam Hinshelwood’s first signing of the said and he’s delighted to have got his man, finally: ‘Jake is a player I have been after for a while, a natural goalscorer who will be a great role model for our younger forwards at the club’.
