Here`s to You Mr Robinson……

Here`s to You Mr Robinson……

Last summer as we contemplated a huge push for promotion, under the managerial reign of Paul Buckle, a youngster arrived from Leicester City.

Matt Robinson, released by the Midlands club, signed a two year deal and many believed that he`d play a huge part in that doomed promotion drive.

But, best laid plans and all that, Matt`s career at Luton kind of stalled. The youngster only made a handful of appearances under Paul Buckle and when John Still arrived he may well have pondered whether Luton was the right career move for him.

However, it would appear that Still recognized that the youngster could play a par tin Luton`s future and Robinson was to start the last 7 games of the season and in doing so it would appear made a sufficient impression to be rewarded with a contract extension.

Today the club has announced that Robinson has committed his future to Luton until 2016 with Still enthusing, on the official web site,

"Matt impressed me immensely with a number of mature performances in midfield towards the end of the season."

"All of the players in the squad needed to prove to me they warranted a place at the club next season and Matt did precisely that."

"Everybody knows the kind of player I like: young, ambitious, hungry. Matt`s all that and more. He`s got terrific potential and he`s still only a teenager."

"Matt knows what he has to do to continue his improvement and if he can, then he is going to be a very important part of the squad."


Here at Vital Luton we`d like to congratulate Matt on his new contract and wish him every success in the future as John Still develops a young hungry and very ambitious side to get us back our rightful place in the Football League.
