Roberts has been racking up the goals and assists since his arrival from Blyth Spartans in January 2020.

The Newcastle United academy graduate's pace and trickery have established him as one of our most exciting attacking players and he's set to play a key role for us in 2020-21.

He bagged 17 goals in 25 games for Blyth before scoring in five consecutive games for us as we reached the National League promotion final.

Roberts had been with hometown club Newcastle 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.

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 with a phenomenal stint at Blyth.
