The flame-haired left-back retains the captain’s armband for a fifth year as Robinson entrusts him to be the leader on and off the pitch.
Lewington, a Dons player throughout his career, became the Club's first outfield player to play every League game last season. The Dons boss wants a captain who has passion for the badge on his shirt and as a result cannot look beyond the 28-year-old defender.
He said: “I think Lewie has grown to become a wonderful captain over the past few years. People point their finger at Lewie because he moans but it’s passion, he cares.
“He gets wrapped up in the emotions of the game – he was one of the players that could have gone in the summer but he decided to stay because he is MK Dons through and through, so I want him to continue as my captain this year.”
Robinson also revealed Stephen Gleeson will keep the vice-captaincy role for the 2012/13 campaign.
He added: “Stephen Gleeson is continuing to mature as well and with the talent that he’s got he is someone that will go from strength to strength in his career and I hope I can play some part in him getting to where he wants to be.“
