Luke Robinson signed by Horsham in Isthmian League Premier Division

Bermuda forward Luke Robinson is on the move after being signed by Horsham in the Isthmian League Premier Division, the seventh tier of the English football pyramid.

Luke Robinson, 22, made his Bermuda debut this season during World Cup qualifying

The 22-year-old, who made his international debut during the recent World Cup qualifiers, spent last season at Staines Town one level down in the Isthmian League South Central division.

Robinson developed his early game in the Southampton and Brighton & Hove Albion youth set-ups before travelling through the lower leagues in the Sussex area with Peacehaven & Telscombe and then Bognor Regis Town, via a brief stint at Lewes.

He made the switch to Haywards Heath Town in 2018 but appearances during his two-year stay at Hanbury Park were limited after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament in his first season.

Having battled his way back to full fitness, Robinson was invited to sign for Staines and ended a Covid-hit campaign by being voted the Supporters’ Player of the Season.

The winger made ten appearances, the most notable being a 4-4 draw with South Park last October in which he netted a hat-trick.

Robinson was handed his first Bermuda cap in a 6-0 defeat away at Surinam in World Cup qualifying on June 4. He also played in the 1-1 draw with the Cayman Islands in Florida four days later.

Bermuda coach Kyle Lightbourne was sufficiently impressed with Robinson that he retained him for the Concacaf Gold Cup when several senior players were recalled.

Robinson got on the pitch for the 8-1 thrashing of Barbados on July 2 in the preliminary first round, which was most memorable for Nahki Wells’s record goal after only 17 seconds, but was an unused substitute for the 4-1 defeat by Haiti in the second round on July 6.
