Club career[edit]

Youth[edit]

Robinson grew up in Newquay, where she had to play for Newquary Boys and Goldphin Boys from age 10 to 16 due to lack of girls' football facilities.[2] She trained at Cornwall Girls Advanced Coaching Centre from age 10 to 12, Devon Advanced Coaching Centre from age 13 to 16, and Plymouth Argyle Boys' Centre of Excellence at age 15 before moving to Bristol to start her career there.[3]

Robinson came through the ranks at the Bristol City academy. She made her senior debut for Bristol City on 14 October 2018 as an 83rd-minute substitute for Juliette Kemppi in a 1–0 loss to Birmingham City in the WSL.[4][5] Robinson scored her first senior career goal on 5 December 2018 during a 5–2 victory over second-tier side Aston Villa in the League Cup.[6] After two seasons, Robinson declined a contract extension with Bristol and departed at the end of the 2019–20 season.[7][8]

Brighton & Hove Albion[edit]

On 13 July 2020, Robinson joined Brighton & Hove Albion, signing her first professional contract in the process.[9] In September 2020, Robinson sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury during training.

On 13 June 2024, it was announced that Robinson would leave Brighton when her contract expires at the end of June 2024.[12]

On 30 November 2023, one year after her senior debut,[17] Robinson scored for the England under-23 team against France in the inaugural European League 2023–24 season.[18][19]
