WARRINGTON Town's FA Cup goal scoring hero Craig Robinson is stepping up to fill a player/coach role at the club.


Defender, Robinson, aged 33, who scored the goal which secured the F.A Cup giant-killing act against Exeter City in the FA Cup last season, will work alongside
joint managers Stuart Mellish and Lee Smith, following the departure of Shaun Reid.
Robinson has been unable to gain a regular place in the first team for much of the season due to the outstanding centre back partnership formed by James McCarten and Danny O'Donnell.
Chairman Toby Macormac said: "Craig has been a true professional this season and will provide valuable support for our new managerial partnership.
Robinson is the brother of MK Dons manager Karl Robinson, who also played at Warrington Town.
