Robert John "Rob" Quinn (born 8 November 1976) is an English-Irish footballer, currently playing for Sevenoaks. He plays as midfielder predominantly in the centre but can also play at centre back. He has represented the Republic of Ireland under-21's and Republic of Ireland B team.


Crystal Palace

Quinn began his career at Crystal Palace, where he came through their youth ranks. Whilst he was learning his trade in the Palace youth team, he was elected captain and led out the team every week to win the Southeast Counties League. His hard work at youth level was recognised by then Crystal Palace manager Dave Bassett, who promoted Quinn to the first team squad which led to him making his debut with fellow youth team mate Danny Boxall on the last game of the season at home against Norwich City in 1996.

Palace were in the play-offs and due to injuries in the first team, Quinn was in the starting line up to face Charlton Athletic in the semi-final in which Crystal Palace won.

Palace were through to the play-off final at Wembley, due to players still being on the injury list Quinn was again picked to start against Leicester City. Palace lost and were forced to carry on in the First Division for the 1996–97 season, where under Dave Bassett, Quinn was a regular in the team making 28 appearances and scoring two goals. Later on that season Bassett left and Steve Coppell was brought in, with Quinn falling down the pecking order. Quinn made his first and only appearance in the Premier League on 27 September 1997 in a home match against Bolton, coming on as a substitute after 72 minutes for Kevin Muscat.

Later career

After spells with Brentford, Oxford United, Bristol Rovers and several non-league clubs (most recently AFC Wimbledon and Welling United) he signed with Cray Wanderers for their inaugural season in the Isthmian Premier League for 2009–10. Quinn joined Kent League side Sevenoaks as a player-coach for the 2010–11 season.
