CHELMSFORD City have welcomed back a familiar face to the dressing room as central defender Steve Robinson has linked back up with the Clarets after several months in the Blue Square Premier with Northwich Victoria.

Robinson, who has already made 15 appearances in a City shirt this season, originally left in late November to head north and renew acquaintances with his former Lewes manager, Steve King, who had arrived at Northwich as their new boss. However, King's recent parting of company has meant a return south, closer to home, for Robinson, whose immediate availability for matches in the Blue Square South has been confirmed.

A prominent, strong defender, Robinson captained Blue Square South champions Lewes in 2007/08 before linking-up with the Clarets. He is also capable of coming forward to join attacks and arrived at Chelmsford with more than 100 games under his belt at Lewes having departed following a major overhaul of players at the club after an ownership change.

Robinson is also a former Grays Athletic player, where he made in the region of 80 appearances. In addition, he built the grounding for his reputation at Edgware Town, Cheshunt, Islington St. Mary's, Hayes and Greenwich Borough.
