FA Cup hero Theo Robinson has left National League leaders Lincoln City to join SkyBet League One side Southend United.
Robinson’s final goal for the Imps came in their 3-1 FA Cup Fourth Round win over Championship promotion chasers Brighton and Hove Albion.
Following that win Robinson expressed his desire to sign a contract with the club, having joined on non-contract terms earlier in the season.
He said “”There have been talks about my contract situation because obviously I am non-contracted at the minutes but I am just taking each game as it comes and we we will go from there. From the first day I got here I knew what I wanted to do and it is obviously working out on the pitch.
“I do (want to stay) but I am just taking each game as it comes. I wouldn’t mind staying here, we are doing well, the team is doing well but it’s not really about me, it’s about the team. We know what we want to do now until the end of the season, that is to get promotion”
However after receiving an approach from Southend United manager Phil Brown, Robinson has now decided to spend a second spell with the Shrimpers, after joining them on loan in 2009.
Robinson, then with Watford, scored nine goals for the Roots Hall club and will begin his second spell with the club when they host Scunthorpe United on Saturday.
The former Derby County striker leaves Lincoln City having scored nine goals for the club, seven of them coming in the FA Cup.
