Robinson returns to bolster Colchester’s promotion push

COLCHESTER UNITED have boosted their Sky Bet League Two promotion credentials by bringing striker, Theo Robinson, back to the JobServe Community Stadium for a second loan spell this season.

Robinson initially linked up with the U’s from struggling Essex neighbours, Southend United, scoring seven times in twenty-one appearances for John McGreal’s men. 

But having missed Colchester’s frustrating draw at Morecambe after returning to Roots Hall, the 30-year-old has now put pen to paper on a deal which will see him play out the remainder of the campaign with the U’s.

Speaking to about the move, Robinson explained: “I’m glad it’s all sorted out and I can get on with playing football.

“I was playing plenty of football and I think I was doing ok for the club, and I always knew what I wanted to do when this time came.

“I had to go back though, and nothing is ever guaranteed, so I’m grateful that the deal got done and I’m here now for the rest of the season.”

Meanwhile, U’s Head Coach, John McGreal, added: “I’m delighted that he’s with us now for the rest of the season.

“We know what he can do, seven goals in eleven starts proves that, and he’s a really good attacking option for us.

“He’s a different player to the likes of Frank Nouble and Luke Norris, and it’s always advantageous to have different threats in the squad.”
