Kyle Robinson signs for Shels

Shelbourne Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Kyle Robinson from St. Patricks Athletic. 

The 20-year-old made 7 appearances for the Saints last season, scoring one goal in a 4-0 win over Drogheda United. 

Kyle spent a large part of the 2021 season on-loan at Wexford FC, where he scored nine league goals over the season.

The 20-year-old forward played youth football with Esker Celtic, St Kevin’s Boys, Home Farm, Leixlip United and Drogheda United before he made the move to Inchicore.  

Kyle has won both the U-17 and U-19 National League titles along with a Leinster Senior Cup winners medal with St. Patrick’s Athletic.  

Robinson joins Tyreke Wilson, JR Wilson, Conor Kearns, Mark Coyle, Luke Byrne, Shane Farrell, Shane Griffin, Jack Moylan, Gavin Molloy, Jad Hakiki, Brian McManus, JJ Lunney, Kameron Ledwidge, Conor Kane and Sean Boyd in signing up for the Reds for the upcoming 2023 season.  

Damien Duff, Head Coach, Shelbourne FC said: “Kyle has so many standout qualities and I look forward to adding more. He has big potential and I thoroughly believe there is no better place in the country for young players to develop.”

Kyle Robinson said: “I am delighted to become a Shels player, and to be joining such a massive club, to sign for Shelbourne FC is a huge honour and to be playing for a manager like Damien Duff makes it even better. 

“When I got the phone call from the gaffer I was really excited and I knew it was the right move for me, the team has had a really good season and I’m looking to help add to that next season. 

“From what I can see the club has a strong close bond between the team right through to the staff, it’s a real family feel to it and it is very welcoming. One of the main reasons why I joined Shels is because I love the football they play and the energy they play with. They are a very hard working team and have a strong togetherness that I can’t wait to be a part of next year.”
