Robbie signed for East Stirlingshire in the last week of September, 2017. He re-signed for season 2019/20 on 11/6/19.
The 18 year-old had been training with the club since 2016/17 and following doing well in practice sessions this prompted coach, John Sludden, to invite him to experience a Saturday match day with the first team squad.
Shire have high hopes for Robbie who will be nurtured carefully by the club. The initial intention is to get him out on loan to give Robbie the opportunity to play football at an adult level every weekend while closely monitoring his development. At the end of August 2018 Robbie joined Stenhousemuir Community AFC to gain some match time and experience. On 10/1/19 Robbie’s loan spell ended and he returned to the Shire.
On 12/9/19 Robbie went out on a season long loan to Whitburn Juniors. Manager Derek Ure has agreed to allow him to go out to gain match experience. Robbie will be available for all Shire reserve matches under the agreement.
