JAKE Robinson is bursting with pride after reaching a century of Billericay Town goals.

The striker came off the bench to strike the only goal of the contest as Town reached the quarter-finals of the Essex Senior Cup at Basildon United’s expense.

And Robinson is pleased to have reached the impressive landmark.

“I am really proud to have reached 100 goals for the club,” said Robinson.

“In this day and age, it’s a big achievement at any level.

“It’s also pleasing that I have got to that figure quite quickly.

“I have got to 100 goals quite comfortably and I’m really happy with how things have gone.”

Since Robinson joined the club for a then club record fee from Hemel Hempstead Town in March 2017, the striker has gone onto become a firm fans’ favourite.

The former Brighton & Hove Albion frontman played a key role as Billericay claimed the treble in 2018 and he has taken his impressive form into the second tier of non-league football.

Robinson had a brief spell away from New Lodge after joining Maidstone United midway through last season, but the 33-year-old is loving life back at Billericay.

“There has been a massive turnover of players at the club over the course of the last few years,” added Robinson.

“I had a brief spell away but I was really happy to come back.

“Being one of the linchpins in the team is great and I love being at the club.

“People move clubs in non-league very quickly, so getting enough games to reach 100 goals is an achievement in itself.”

Robinson has joined Billy Bricknell, Doug Young, Leon Gutzmore and Freddie Clayden in reaching a century of Billericay goals.

And the frontman has already set his sights on his next target.

“I always thought that 100 was a nice, round number to aim for,” admitted Robinson.

“But I think I’m now only 13 goals away from being Billericay’s second all-time leading scorer so that is my next aim.

“I’m a long way from being the top goalscorer in the club’s history but I’m hoping there are a lot more goals to come.

“I have scored in four consecutive games now and it would be great if I could keep that run going because I want to score consistently.”

Out of Robinson’s 100 goals for the club, he struggled to pick out a favourite.

“I liked my goal of the season against Brightlingsea Regent,” confirmed Robinson.

“I also liked scoring from the halfway line at Dulwich Hamlet.”
