Cheerio, Robbie

31 January 2013

ROBBIE Williams has left Home Park.

The left-back, who has made 46 appearances for the Pilgrims, has had his contract terminated by mutual consent so that he can seek first-team football elsewhere.

Robbie, 29, signed for the Pilgrims in July 2011, under former manager Peter Reid, playing seven times until Reid was replaced by Carl Fletcher.

Under Fletcher, Williams had to prove himself and after a 1-1 draw with Hereford United in December 2011, was forced to wait until February 2012 for his next outing, a 0-0 draw with Dagenham and Redbridge at Home Park.

From there on in, Robbie was an ever-present, forming an important part of a back four that would concede just 12 goals in the final half of the season, thus ensuring the club's Football League survival.

Robbie began this term in fine fettle, too, scoring three goals in ten appearances before a stomach injury kept him out until mid-December.

Robbie made his final appearance for the Pilgrims in the 4-0 defeat to Port Vale and has been a unused substitute in both of John Sheridan's squads so far.

Everybody at Home Park thanks Robbie for his contribution to the Green cause and wish him all the best for his future career.
