One of the many Robsons who came out of the amateur football breeding ground of the North-East to play League football, Bill Robson joined Leeds in December 1921, but did not make the first team in that season. There was plenty of competition for the forward places and he managed just two games at inside right and one at outside right in his second season. While he had featured regularly in the lower grades, he had played just two more games at inside right, when he and Walter Coates represented the Yorkshire Midweek League in March 1923. This had him catapulted into the first team, and he held his inside right position for the remaining five games of that season. Percy Whipp was well established at inside-right and with no games to his name in the 1923-24 season he left Leeds in 1924. Robson played for Non-League Mansfield Town, Frickley Colliery and Gainsborough Trinity before signing for Ashington on 1st July 1926.
