Jon Robertson has insisted that he has the quality to force his way into Danny Lennon’s first team when he completes his move to St Mirren this summer.
The midfielder has signed a pre-contract with the Paisley team and will make the switch when his Cowdenbeath contract expires at the end of the season.
Robertson has signed off in style at Central Park by picking up the Second Division Player of the Year award. He now believes he can show he has what in takes to shine in the top flight.
“There is no denying it’s a big step up,” he told the Scottish Sun.
“That’s why the top players are in the SPL, because they’re the best in the country.
“But I know this opportunity is down to me and what I do.
“I have to go in there and work my socks off in pre-season. That’s going to be my trial run and it’s the biggest pre-season I’ll ever have undertaken.
“However, I have to believe I’m good enough to get into St Mirren’s starting XI”.
Robertson will be re-united with former Cowdenbeath star Darren McGregor at Greenhill Road as well as manager Danny Lennon, who had a two year stint in charge of the Blue Brazil before moving to St Mirren.
“I remember Danny at Cowdenbeath and his enthusiasm for the game,” Robertson said.
“He was really into his training and that rubbed off on me. I’m quite a good trainer and I’ll be going there looking to impress.”
The 23-year-old has made 38 appearances for Cowdenbeath this season, scoring six times.
