Mark Robinson was a journeyman fast-medium bowler who played for Northamptonshire (1987-90), Yorkshire (1991-95) and finally at Sussex (1997-2002). He missed one summer, 1996, between being released by Yorkshire and signing for Sussex. He also had one season in New Zealand with Canterbury. Solid rather than penetrative, he only twice passed 50 wickets in a summer but exceeded 40 ten times.

Unfortunately, Robinson will probably be better remembered for his batting which was truly appalling, all the more spectacular as he played in the era when even No.11s had to have some ability to hold up their end. He managed 590 runs against 584 wickets, and in 1990 set a record when he made 12 successive scores of 0, failing to score a run between mid May and mud August.

In 2005 he returned to Hove as the county's coach, and was at the helm when they won the Championship in 2006 and 2007.
