Dan Robinson

The football club are delighted to appoint Dan Robinson as our new Academy Manager.

Peterborough United are pleased to confirm the appointment of Dan Robinson as the club’s new Academy Manager.

Robinson will officially take up the position in September after leaving Burton Albion, where he had been in the same position since September 2016, helping to re-shape the Brewers Academy as well as working alongside first team manager Dino Maamria.

Posh co-owner Jason Neale said: “The club went through an exhaustive recruitment process culminating in the appointment of Dan who impressed with his breadth of domestic and international experience, his tangible results of player development and his ability to work with a variety of stakeholders, from the FA, to parents to the first team management.  We are very much looking forward to working with Dan and build on the legacy of Kieran Scarff.”

Scarff, who moved into the position of assistant manager following the return of Darren Ferguson, believes Robinson will be an excellent appointment. “I have no doubt that Dan will continue the good work that has been going on within the Academy, working closely with the staff and helping to develop our young players. He has done a wonderful job at Burton Albion and we look forward to welcoming him next month and are excited about the future.”

Robinson was grateful to be given the opportunity. “Firstly, I would like to thank the owners and the football club for giving me the opportunity, it is one that I am really looking forward too. A lot of wonderful work has taken place at the Academy under the leadership of Kieran Scarff and I am looking forward to building on that when I take the start next month.

“The opportunity to work at a Category Two Academy was something that really excited me, the infrastructure at the club is excellent and I can’t wait to meet the staff and get started. I really enjoyed my time at Burton Albion, I was obviously a player at the football club so to be given the chance to work within the Academy for so long was an honour. There are a lot of really good people at Burton and I wish them well.”

Robinson spent 12 years in New Zealand, first as a player and then as a coach and was part of the countries staff at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
