Ipswich Town (no first team games) and Colchester United (8 appearances) represented midfielder Devereaux’s English League experience before he came to Shelbourne for the 1994-95 season, when the Reds contributed to the last day theatricals that saw Dundalk emerge as League Champions.

Robbie made 20 League appearances that term but he was a bit player (2 apps and 6 subs) for the following year. He had failed to make a Shel’s appearance for the 1996-97 season when John Hewitt took him to Dundalk in October, one of a trio—with Fintan McConville and Stephen Douglas—to arrive together.

The new arrivals made little difference and shortly into the following season, with Jim McLaughlin in charge, he left for St Patrick’s Athletic, making a useful contribution to their Championship victory (7 apps, 11 subs, 1 goal).

After a couple of seasons with the Pats, he moved back to the UK, having stints at Southport, Sudbury Town and AFC Sudbury.

He made 4 appearances in European competitions—2 each with Shelbourne (1995-96) and St Patrick’s Athletic (1999-00).
