Hawks boss Paul Doswell opted against offering Robson a new deal at the club - and he has agreed on a switch to former club Bognor

The 29-year-old defender moved to Hawks in the summer of 2019 following a brief spell at Billericay, spending two years at Westleigh Park in what was his second stint with the club.

Prior to that, Robson spent time playing in the National League with both Barnet and Dagenham & Redbridge after first leaving Bognor in 2016.

Robson is one of a number of Hawks departures already confirmed this summer.

Boss Doswell has brought in 10 new signings in the close season as he makes a host of changes to last season's playing squad.

Danny Kedwell was appointed Cray Wanderers' player-manager earlier this summer, while Joe Iaciofano (Oxford City), Josh Taylor (Dorking Wanderers) and Robson have all found new clubs.

Doswell has also not offered new deals to out of contract players Roarie Deacon, Anthony Straker, Bedsente Gomis and Joe Tupper.

Meanwhile, player-coach SImon Walton is another to depart this summer with increased coaching responsibilities arriving elsewhere.
