Luke Chadwick will realise a life-long dream by playing for Cambridge United after he joined them on loan until the end of the season.

The 33-year-old, who has made in excess of 230 appearances for the club, scoring 21 goals and countless more assists, will join up with Richard Money’s men to help them in their Skrill Premier promotion hunt.

With Robinson finally boasting strength in numbers in attack, with Izale McLeod, Sanmi Odelusi, Ryan Hall, Ben Reeves, Dele Alli, Giorgio Rasulo and James Loveridge all capable of playing on the front line, he admitted it made it easier to allow Chadwick the chance to fulfil his footballing ambition.

“For Luke Chadwick to help his boyhood team into the Football League would be a dream for him,” Robinson said.

“He didn’t want to leave while we were short on numbers, so he’s stayed an extra two or three weeks and helped me out massively.

“He doesn’t want to let the Chairman, the fans or me down but he said that while he’s still got the legs he wants to fulfil his dream, which is to play for Cambridge United. It’s a decision we’ve come to with him and his family.

“I’m disappointed, but proud that he can fulfil his dream.”

Chadwick is eligible to play in United’s game against Welling tonight.
