Halifax RLFC have completed the signing of Connor Robinson on a 2 year deal ahead of the 2021 Championship campaign. Robinson initially joined Fax midway through the 2015 season from Hull KR and returns to the Shay following a successful three year stint at York City Knights.
An accomplished goal kicker with good ball skills, the points scoring machine was named League 1 player of the season during their promotion campaign and helped them make the Championship play offs during their first year back in the division.
But the 25 year old half back was delighted to be back in West Yorkshire to set the record straight with the blue and white army.
“I am excited to be coming back to Fax. I feel that I left without fulfilling my potential before. When my agent mentioned of the interest, it felt like an opportunity to come back and right those wrongs from last time.”
“I have had a great time at York. We had some memorable years, but the opportunity to go back and play at Halifax was too good to turn down. After speaking to Grixy and Ian Croad, it was a no brainer to come back and be a part of the family. 2021 can not come quick enough and I wil do everything I can to push Fax to promotion to Super League.”
The former West Hull junior is the latest addition in Simon Grix’s ambitious recruitment drive. And his new head coach shares his enthusiasm for the challenges ahead.
“Connor is a great addition for us,’ said Grix. “He went away for the opportunity to play a bigger part in the running of a team and enjoyed success in doing so. He comes back to us a confident well rounded player. He’s a solid kicker both in play and at goal with some speed about him, which I’ll be pushing him to use. We’ve had a few discussions about what I expect from him and we look forward now to getting into pre season and building the relationships and combinations needed for us to see the best of him.”
Connor will be sponsored by The Ivy House inn (player) and For Fax Sake (kit) in 2021 and we’d like to thank both sponsors for supporting the club and player #ForwardTogether
