Since his drug-addled debut on the Amsterdam trip in 2000, Rob has gone from teenage sensation all the way to “higher levels”, two player of the year awards in 2001 and 2006, and being voted into the WIFC hall of fame in 2006. The club’s all time leading scorer, and almost certainly it’s most big headed and worst dressed player, Rob holds the record for most goals in a season, 39 in 2002/03 and has been top scorer 6 times in total, most recently in 2012/13. Other highlights include a six-goal salvo against Luton in the IFA Cup in 2003, and beating his own club record in 2008 with seven against Dulwich Hamlet. Now exiled in the States, Rob’s race to 200 goals may take a little longer than planned.
