Leigh, Lancashire born left half Alick Robinson began his football career with Hindley Green in 1925 and joined First Division Bury in 1926, making his Football League debut against Aston Villa in February 1927, his only first team appearance in his debut season. Indeed his outings for Bury were occasional until he broke into the first team, by now relegated to the Second Division, in September 1929, missing very few matches for The Shakers between then and his transfer to Burnley “for a substantial fee” in October 1933, having scored 4 goals in 181 appearances for the Gigg Lane club.

He was described at the time as a “determined and fearless type, especially good in organising clever attacks. Has a strong kick that goalies watch even at a distance. A fine team inspirer”. Having become club captain at Burnley, in September 1934 he played for The Football League as they beat The Irish League 6-1 in Belfast, He was also part of Burnley’s 1935 FA Cup semi final team that lost 3-0 at Villa Park to eventual winners Sheffield Wednesday. He remained at Burnley until the outbreak of the Second World War, which effectively ended his career, having scored 9 times in 223 appearances for The Clarets.
