Robbie Willmott to Leave Newport County in the Summer

The former loaned-in Saddler will be looking for a fresh challenge in the summer.
Bescot Banter - Walsall FC NewsFormer Walsall loanee Robbie Willmott will be looking for a new club in the summer as parent club Newport County have named him among a group of players to be released at the end of their current deals.

32-year-old Willmott made ten first-team appearances during a short-term spell at Poundland Bescot Stadium before returning to the Exiles after suffering a season-ending injury in early March.

Robbie, who can also play as a winger, wing-back, and centrally as an attacking midfielder played 292 matches for Newport over two spells and worked closely with former Walsall Head Coach Michael Flynn and Assistant Wayne Hatswell.

During his first spell at Rodney Parade between 2013 and 2015, he played alongside Flynn and helped the Exiles reach the EFL.

After spells at Ebbsfleet United, Eastleigh, Bishop’s Stortford, and Chelmsford City, he returned to South Wales in 2017 and played a key role for the Exiles as they reached the League Two play-off final in 2019 and 2021.

He also enjoyed a loan spell at Exeter City in the second half of the 2020/21 season before returning home.
