Robson was a member of the team that finished runners-up of the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1976, scoring in the Semi-final second leg game against Eintracht Frankfurt and in the Final against Anderlecht. He spent time on loan with North American Soccer League team Team Hawaii for the franchise's single season under the moniker, playing with former Hammer Yılmaz Orhan. He played his last game for the East London club on 5 March 1977 against Sunderland.
