Former Southampton Youngster Joins Bolton

Clive Rose

Former Southampton u18 captain Andy Robinson has agreed to join the club on a permanent basis. The 21-year-old has agreed terms and signed a 1-year deal at the newly named Macron Stadium.

Bolton have made another signing.  Despite being on loan with the Wanderers for the second half of the 2013/14 season Andy Robinson failed to make his first team debut for Dougie Feedman's side, although he did do enough to earn himself a contract for 12 months.

Robinson, who was born in Bournemouth, joined the Staints' highly regarded academy at the tender age of eight and developed his game, predominantly as a central midfielder.

Robinson was then promoted to the Southampton first team at the beginning of the 2012-13 season, and made his debut for them on 25 September 2012 in a 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in the third round of the League Cup, coming on as an 81st-minute substitute for Jack Cork.

After failing to dislodge high calibre players such as, Victor Wanyama, James Ward-Prowse and Jack Cork he was loaned out to the Reebok Stadium in order to gain first-team experience.

After failing to make his mark at St Mary's, Mauricio Pochettino decided against renewing his contract allowing the 21 year old to join Bolton Wanderers under the Bosman ruling.

Robinson is now Freedman's fourth acquisition this summer, joining Neil Danns, Liam Trotter and Liam Feeney at the football club.

Speaking the the club's official website in March, this is what Freedman had to say about the youngster,

'We've been looking at him for a while now. He's a good young player who has been brought up in a fantastic system'

"I've watched him play in the reserves for Southampton for some time now and we know all about him,"
