Defender heading back to London for Watford match
After less than 24 hours in Huddersfield, new signing Jack Robinson is heading back to London as part of the Terriers’ squad to face Watford.
The left-back only arrived in Yorkshire last night after signing on loan from Queens Park Rangers, who he had joined permanently from Liverpool.
The former Wolves and Blackpool player barely had chance to meet his new QPR teammates before heading up to Huddersfield. The 20 year-old trained with the Terriers this morning before making his way back to London for tomorrow’s 3pm kick-off at Vicarage Road.
“It has been mad,” said Robinson. “I went to London on Wednesday night before completing my medical at Queens Park Rangers on Thursday morning. It lasted about five hours and then I jumped on a train up to Huddersfield; it was one of the longest days of my life!
“I knew about loan deal when I joined QPR; it is a good move as I don’t believe I am quite ready for the Premier League yet,” the England U21 international explained. “Hopefully a year in the Championship with Huddersfield will provide me with a good foundation. I want to play games, gain more experience then go back to QPR a better player.”
Robinson, who was schooled at Liverpool, will compete with Paul Dixon for the left-back spot, but revealed that he has experience playing in a few positions.
“It is going to be a tough year because the Championship is a hard league; it will be a good challenge,” Jack said. “I spoke with Martin Kelly before I came here and he only had good things to say about Huddersfield Town. Hopefully I can force my way into the team and impress.
“I have played in a few positions during my career,” he added. “As a kid I played at centre-back and I have also played in a few games in the centre of the park, but my natural position is left-back.”
