Robson was amongst the most popular players in North-East Amateur football before turning professional with Leeds. He began with Thornley Albion, then joined Crook Town. He was with them in the 1922-23 season and was monitored by Leeds and on 20th January 1923 an unsuccessful bid was made. It was to be eighteen months later that he finally joined Leeds from Cockfield FC in July 1924. He made seventeen successive appearances in United’s first-ever First Division campaign and scored on his debut, but a knee injury saw him lose his place. After using several players as his replacement for the rest of that season, United bought English International Bobby Turnbull to fill the right-wing spot for the following season. After being unable to regain his first team spot, Robson moved to Third Division South side Southend United at the end of May 1926, but scored once in his only five League starts and two F.A. Cup games at Root Hall. During the following close-season he returned north to his native Co. Durham and joined Third Division North team Hartlepools United. He made his debut on 14th September 1927 in a 3-2 away win at Wrexham and three days later he opened his scoring account with a goal in the 4-1 home win over Ashington. He went on to score five goals in twenty League appearances. From Hartlepools he went to Non-League with Welsh North League side Connah's Quay and Shotton from Flintshire, re-entering League football with Second Division Bristol City in 1930. After twenty-five League appearances in which he scored two goals at Ashton Gate, he finished his career with Third Division North side, Chester, who he joined in October 1931. He was soon on the mark scoring in three consecutive games, on 31st October 1931 in a 2-1 win at home to Rotherham United, followed by one in a 2-2 draw at Tranmere Rovers and then a fortnight later in a 3-0 home win over York City. His final goal came three games later on 19th December in a 3-4 defeat at Carlisle United. He played thirteen games at Sealand Road before retiring at the season’s end. He died in Durham East in October 1972.
