Wigan Athletic star determined to build on loan spell after ‘learning a lot’

Luke Robinson is certain that his time spent in Scotland will ‘absolutely hold me in good favour’ when he rejoins Wigan Athletic to compete for a starting position.

The 22-year-old defender, who missed the entire season due to a knee injury sustained last month, is now officially back with Latics.

He made 33 appearances for the Saints, and admits he is ‘gutted’ he wasn’t able to finish his spell on the field.

He remarked, “I would love nothing more than to help the lads in the games that remain on the pitch. I am devastated to miss the last few games this season.”

On New Year’s Day, Latics called up Robinson to provide cover. Later in January, he was permitted to go back to St Johnstone to finish his loan.

Robinson believes that his loan has improved his ability to challenge for a starting position in League One next season, which is exactly what Latics manager Shaun Maloney hopes from the former Scotland Under-21 left-back.

“I’m sure the experiences will help me when I return to Wigan,” he continued. Since joining the Saints, I have developed both personally and as a player.


“During my stay, I have discovered a lot about myself and have picked up some important lessons. I’m grateful for everything this club has done for me professionally and I hope the future is bright for everyone.

Robinson claims that during the past 12 months, both on and off the pitch, he has benefited.

“I had a great time,” he declared. “Even though there have undoubtedly been ups and downs during my time living in Perth, I can honestly say that I have enjoyed being a part of it.”
