A fan favourite and now in his second spell with the club, Robbie Willmott's pace and versatility has made him an ever-popular character with County fans young and old.

Robbie began his career at Cambridge United coming up through The U's Academy, he scored 19 goals in 108 games for United before Luton Town cashed in on him for £50,000. Two years and one 'Team Of The Year' appearence later, Robbie was released from Luton and re-signed for Cambridge.

After joining the club from Cambridge United in January 2013, Robbie was vital in County's National League play-off promotion winning season and was a regular in the Newport team until his release by Terry Butcher at the start of the 15/16 season.

Willmott spent three years away from County before returning after spells at Ebbsfleet and Eastleigh. Willmott left his most recent club Chelmsford City to re-sign for County this summer and has been an ever-present player.

His ability to play both in attack and defence on the right wing means that Robbie is a huge asset to Michael Flynn and the rest of the squad.

 DID YOU KNOW? Robbie scored his first goal on his full debut for Luton Town against County on 18 February 2011 in a 1-1 draw at Spytty Park.
