ANDY Robinson said he always wanted to join Weymouth when he departed Havant & Waterlooville, after joining the Terras on Saturday.

The former Southampton youngster won player of the season for the then National League side last season, and the midfielder is impressed with what he has seen so far.

Robinson told Echosport: “It has been one that has been a long time coming.

“Obviously the situation at Havant changed and this came up and I am so pleased to be here and grateful for the opportunity.

“In the end, it was pretty straight forward. I always wanted to come here, there was nowhere else I wanted to come after speaking to the manager.

“I have been so impressed, I have had three training sessions so far and I have been so impressed.

“The training is hard but I am really impressed with what we have done.

“This was the club I spoke to first and the club I always to join, so yes, delighted.”

His departure from the Hawks comes after they announced they were going full-time, something that Robinson was unwilling to do, due to studying for a degree.

Robinson said: “I am doing a physio degree alongside this, so I am just trying to do as best as I can with that and do as best as I can with the football. It is the same for both, try and tackle both head on.

“It is two things going on at once but I am really enjoying the course and the last few years of my football I have really enjoyed that as well so I am looking to keep going and enjoying both things.”
