Blue Square Bet North club Blyth Spartans have followed last week`s loan signing of former favourite Michael Tait by…
….taking Adam Robinson on a similar basis from npower League Two side Bradford City.
Robinson is an 18-year-old central defender – based in the North East – who has featured on the bench for the first-team, but is yet to make a debut for the Bantams.
Bradford manager Phil Parkinson will hope that the temporary move to Blyth will see the defender enjoy some competitive first-team action in order to help the youngster’s progression, much in the same way of the successful loan of goalkeeper Mark Gillespie from Carlisle United midway through last season.
Upon completion of the deal, Spartans manager Cuggy commented: “We really pleased to get Adam on board and would like to offer thanks Bradford for their kind offer to loan us one of their up and coming players.
“We were initially offered him last week, but due to Adam being quite close to the first-team squad they won’t allow us to play him in the FA Cup, so with there was no immediate rush to push the deal through, but he will certainly come into contention for this Saturday’s home game with Worcester City.
“Like the Tait deal, I see it as a good one for all parties and one which will hopefully see Adam gain some competitive first-team football when he is with us. He trained with the lads last night and looked a very good player – tall, quick and a really good footballer – so we are hopeful he’ll do well for us.”
