Haverhill’s Joe Robinson is set to get his chance to show he can stand up to the rigours of men’s football after agreeing a one-month loan deal with National League Woking.
The brother of AFC Sudbury defender Ben Robinson is looking to prove his worth through his first loan spell, and in doing so make up Mick McCarthy’s decision of giving him a new contract at Portman Road an easy one.
Central defender Robinson, who has captained Ipswich Town’s Under-21s side this term, has progressed well with the Blues and was named on the bench against Charlton Athletic before making his first-team debut as a late substitute in the FA Cup defeat to Portsmouth last month.
The Academy graduate will team up with his new team-mates ahead of The Cards’ clash with Grimsby at Blundell Park tomorrow evening (Tuesday, February 23).
Woking, managed by Garry Hill, are currently ninth in the Vanarama National League Premier Division, three points off the top five and a play-off place after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Bromley, despite now being on a run of five games without a win.
Robinson is set to remain at The Laithwaite Community Stadium until March 28.
