The Newcastle United academy graduate signed from Blyth Spartans in January 2020 after hitting 17 goals in 25 games during the first half of the campaign.

Roberts had been with the Premier League side since the age of eight and was given his full debut by Rafael Benitez in an FA Cup win at Blackburn in January 2019, marking the occasion with a goal.

He was also named on the bench in the top flight but, somewhat surprisingly, wasn't offered a new contract and left St James' Park in the summer.

After questioning his future in football, Roberts linked up with former Newcastle midfielder Lee Clark, who had also managed the winger during a loan spell at Kilmarnock, and rediscovered his love for the game in a phenomenal stint at Blyth.

His form earned him a move to Meadow Lane, where is he looking to impress and continue rebuilding his career as he tries to achieve his aim of playing in the Premier League.
