Robinson told Kent's official club website: “To represent your home county is a real honour and I’m thrilled to commit to two further years here.

“I’m pleased with the start I’ve made in the first team but I’m always looking to improve and work on my game.

“I know that I’m at a county where I can keep developing and I’m looking forward to future challenges alongside this group of players.”
