Greens Capture Robson Signature

Player/Manager Tom Ward made his first new signing of the summer on Sunday afternoon by capturing former Pinchbeck United captain, Ben Robson.

Robson played a pivotal role across the campaign for the Knights, making a total of 33 appearances across all-competitions last season. That left him second to just Nathan Stevens in the clubs overall appearances charts last year and his impact was recognised as Robson won the Knights managers player of the year and players player of the year awards at the clubs end-of-season awards last month.

A versatile campaigner, Robson began his career as part of the Boston United youth system before moving on to Pinchbeck at the beginning of the 2022/2023 campaign - playing a starring role in their impressive FA Vase run that season, as well as helping the club to retain their step five status in United Counties League Premier Division North during the same campaign.

His impact saw him appointed the clubs captain ahead of the previous campaign which saw the Knights fight valiantly, only to be relegated on the final weekend on goal-difference. But despite that disappointment, Robson still earned many plaudits, standing out for the Knights during their penultimate game of the campaign against the Greens in April.

Tom Ward admitted over the weekend that the move had been a long time coming.

"We've had our eye on him for some time now. He's got an excellent physique, is comfortable on the ball and excels across a variety of positions. He's a great addition and he's already settled straight into the group."

Robson meanwhile, was also delighted to get the move over the line.

"I am very excited to be joining Sleaford Town this season. I've really enjoyed my first few training sessions and enjoyed playing with a great bunch of lads. I can't wait to get started and hopefully we can have a successful season!"
