Andy Robinson



Swansea City AFC.co.uk Comment:

Andy Robinson was previously playing for a Liverpool Sunday League side after being released by Tranmere Rovers. This seemed strange to hear at the time with the amount of quality he offers to Kenny Jackett's team.

Although he is rather small, he isn't afraid to get stuck in and can be very physical when challenging for the ball, he is a great passer, good play maker and also has excellent skill to avoid tackles.

He was Swansea's main free kick taker last season and scored 11 goals, some being very memorable including a spectacular goal against Preston in the FA Cup to get the Swans level.

Andy arrived at the Vetch and impressed Brian Flynn to earn a 3 month contract, he was known as a striker but always performed much better in midfield.

He won the Player of the Year Award for the 2003/2004 season as well as the Jackarmy.net Player of the Year award.

The following season however didn't go as planned as much, he recieved 2 sendings off, 2 fines and misses the first 4 matches of the new season. Andy Robinson has been impressive throughout the 2005/06 season. He worked his way into the first team after being left out at the start.

Not only were his performances impressive, but the way he was so disclipined after a bad season for him last year.

He walked away from bad challenges when last season you'd expect him to get volatile with the referee and opposing players.

He played a big part in our route to the Football League Trophy Final, scoring frequently during the competition. He scored 17 goals in 36 starts in all competitions, scoring just 4 less than top scorer Trundle with 21.

Kenny Jackett has been grateful for his hard-work and excellent performances and has offered him a new 2-year contract to keep him at the club until 2008.

Jackett said: I'm a firm believer in rewarding players for their efforts,''

'Andy gave everything to the club last season and was a top performer on a consistent basis.

'His performances, commitment and enthusiasm was impressive and I am keen to keep Andy at the club beyond his current contract.
