Robert Younis (born 14 August 1985) is a Lebanese-Australian footballer who plays for Bonnyrigg White Eagles FC in the New South Wales Premier League.

Club career[edit]

Younis signed for Adelaide in 2008 after an impressive two seasons for APIA Leichhardt in the NSW Premier League which saw him net a phenomenal 38 goals in just 43 appearances. After an indifferent start to his professional career at United, Robert came on as a 78th minute sub against Perth Glory[1] and made an immediate impact setting up Brazilian Alemão to equalise in the eventual 2–1 win.[2]

In April 2009, a goal shy Robbie was released from Adelaide United by mutual consent. He has since re-signed with former club, APIA Leichhardt for the 2009 NSW Premier League season.

As of 26 April 2009, Robbie has played 7 games for APIA and has yet to score a goal.

On 2 May 2009, Younis finally got on the scoresheet with a well taken penalty against bitter rivals Marconi Stallions.

Robbie continues to lead the line for APIA and had an exceptional 2010 season where he banged home 16 goals.

Younis has signed for the Bonnyrigg White Eagles for the 2012 NSWPL season.
