16 Connor Robinson

Connor Robinson is our little ray of sunshine  and every time he gets on the pitch he shows  a genuine appetite for the game. His cameo appearances pre-season against tiring legs illustrate the power of youth and exuberance, but it is misleading and if the head is to rule the heart, as it should, 19 year-old Connor needs to be eased into a league full of hard men. Undoubtedly over a 50 match Marathon he will get his chance  under manager Gary Simpson and double last years 4 goal haul.

Connor has not had it easy since starring in the Imps 3-0 Youth Cup Final win over Chesterfield at the B2Net Stadium in April. He made his debut as a sub against Hayes in the BSP in 2011/12 and was given a two year first pro contract. But like all  5 of Grants prodigal sons from the fountain of youth but like all the youngsters, given a heraldic fanfare in the Summer, he was discarded by Holdsworth.

In 2012/13 Connor’s cameos were still a treat to behold with 4 goals in 5 starts and just 682 minutes of first team football. A March loan to Worksop for a month, under the stewardship of Simon Clark, only earned him two sub appearances in a season that could have been so much more under a different manager and different circumstances.

Gary Simpson is the perfect manager to heal last years memories. A good pre-season should see Connor start to realise a potential that could see him reborn. Imp born and bred, he feels the passion and may well be a perfect replacement for Jamie Taylor one day if Simmo can develop the lad. He deserves his chance and we Imps so want him to succeed.

Thus far his impact on games has been as limited as it has been explosive, but his time is about to come, one feels, upon the Sincil stage. One can understand the desire to protect him during the tough times but Connor is ready and chomping at the bit to deliver for his Imps. Lincoln born, Lincoln Bred, Connor’s an Imp until he’s dead.
