Millwall legend Paul Robinson admits offer to play local to home “definitely interests me”

Former Millwall defender Paul Robinson has admitted that joining Havant & Waterlooville holds appeal as he weighs up his playing future.

The veteran centre-back was released by AFC Wimbledon last month and has already stated he does not want to hang up his boots.

Robinson’s strong connections to the Lions mean the door is alway open for a role there, with manager Neil Harris recently telling the South London Press last month: “Robbo was one of the best Millwall captains of all time.

“There will be opportunities for him here when his playing career finishes because of the kind of character and personality he is.

“I have spoken to Robbo many times on this over the last few months. He has still got that desire to play as well as having the ability and physical attributes to play.”

Robinson told the Portsmouth News: “‘I have spoken to Havant and it’s a club that have had a couple of good seasons.

“It’s something that definitely interests me.

“Obviously, I still live in the area and it’s something I have spoken to the manager about. He got in touch with me and it’s something that does interest me, so we’re just assessing the options over the summer.”
