Johnny Robinson – 1936 – 2019

It is with deep regret that we announce the death of former player, Johnny Robinson, at the age of 83.

Johnny joined the Shakers in 1954 from Leyland Motors, and would spend the next five years at Gigg Lane as a first team regular, before he left for Oldham Athletic in 1959. Johnny made 127 appearances for the club, scoring 21 goals. A regular at Leyland Golf Club, Johnny sadly passed away this week.

We would like to send our thoughts and condolences to all family and friends of Johnny.
