Jack Robinson (born 1 September 1993) is an English professional footballer who plays as a left-back for Queens Park Rangers.
Robinson is the second-youngest ever player to have played for Liverpool, having made his senior debut at the age of 16 years and 250 days. He has also been capped by England at under-21 level.
Robinson was born in Warrington, Cheshire. Having progressed through Liverpool's academy system, he made his senior debut on 9 May 2010 as a late substitute at Hull City in manager Rafael Benítez's final game in charge of the club. Robinson's appearance made him the youngest player at the time to have played in a first team match for the club, at age 16 years and 250 days, breaking Max Thompson's 36-year-old record; his record was subsequently broken in 2012 by Jerome Sinclair.
Robinson was registered as a u-21 player for the 2010–11 season.

One week later, on 23 April 2011, he started his first ever game for the Reds in a 5–0 victory against Birmingham City.
With the signing of left-back José Enrique in summer 2011, Robinson's chances of first team action became even more restricted. He made only two appearances during the 2011–12 season, both in League Cup ties: a 3–1 away win at Exeter on 24 August 2011 and a 2–1 win at Brighton & Hove Albion on 21 September 2011.

With the departure of Fábio Aurélio in summer 2012 and the arrival of Brendan Rodgers as manager, Robinson was promoted to second choice left-back. On 23 August 2012, he made his first European appearance for Liverpool as he started their 1–0 UEFA Europa League win at Hearts. He also started in the next Europa League game against Udinese, as well as featuring in all four of the club's matches in the domestic cup competitions during the season.

On 1 August 2013, Robinson joined Championship side Blackpool on a season-long youth loan. He made his debut for the club two days later against Doncaster Rovers, coming on as a 65th-minute substitute for Bob Harris in a 1–3 win. He made his full debut in Blackpool's West Lancashire derby League Cup first round opener against Preston North End, completing the full 90 minutes in a 1–0 defeat.

After missing Blackpool's next match away at Millwall on 17 September 2013 through suspension, he was put straight back into the starting line-up for the club's 2–2 draw at home to Leicester City on 21 September 2013. He then went on to start all of Blackpool's next three league fixtures, picking up a yellow card in the Tangerines 1–1 draw away at Huddersfield Town on 27 September 2013 and playing the full 90 minutes in the clubs back-to-back goalless draws against Bolton Wanderers and Charlton Athletic respectively.
