A blistering pre-season has given Roberts and his many supporters hope of a far happier season than the one he endured throughout 2020-21.

The attacking midfielder, who is regarded by many as the best player in the National League, scored three goals in as many appearances in this summer's friendlies after missing the vast majority of last season through injury.

Roberts underwent surgery earlier this year and he and the club are hopeful that his problems are now behind him and that he can pick up where he left off following his arrival from Blyth Spartans in January 2020, when he racked up several goals and assists to help fire us into the play-offs.

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 in which he scored 17 goals in 25 games.
