FORMER Derby County youngster Anthony Robinson is currently on trial with Accrington Stanley and caught manager John Coleman’s eye in the 5-2 reserve victory over Macclesfield.

Robinson who was released by the Pride Park outfit at the end of last season impressed Coleman when he scored for Reserves in midweek and could have had a handful of others.

‘He caught my eye – he looked a threat and had pace. He scored one goal and was disappointed he didn`t get a couple of others which is a good sign.’ said Coleman speaking to the Accrington Observer.

Youngsters may be the order of the season for Coleman who admitted that he is being priced out of moves for older players and is instead opting to stick with youth. David Worrall, 18, Rostyn Griffiths, 18, and Jamie Clarke, 19, have already joined on loan this season.

‘I think we will have to look at young players because of the finances as older players want more money,’ continued Coleman.

‘But I still want a winger and another striker.’
