Ger Robinson (born 9 June 1982 in Dunboyne) is an Irish football striker, who last played for Kildare County in the League of Ireland.

Biography[edit]

Robinson trained with the likes of Ravenelli, Juninho and Paul Gascoigne as a youngster with Middlesbrough [4]. While playing with the Middlesbrough reserves he has put the ball in the famous Anfield net. He never quite made the senior squad at Middlesbrough and returned to Ireland on loan at Dundalk F.C..[1]

He scored on his League of Ireland debut at home to Shels on 27 August 2001[2] and at the end of the season he picked up an FAI Cup winner's medal. He then had spells with Kilkenny City, Monaghan United and Longford Town before changing codes to play GAA. For Longford he scored one goal in 7 total appearances[3]

He picked up a Meath Senior Football Championship winner's medal for St Peters Dunboyne in the following years, where he was man of the match in the final [5].

Robinson returned to soccer when his uncle John Ryan gave him a chance to line out for Kildare County while maintaining his GAA commitments at the same time. In the 2006 seasons and the 2007 seasons he played for Kildare County only in the latter end of the season due to GAA commitments. In this spell he scored 10 goals in 15 games. In 2008, he committed solely to soccer and played the entire season but only scored 1 goal in 31 appearances. He did not play for The Thoroughbreds after that.
