A TOP young player who was part of the Prestatyn squad crowned 2019/20 JD Cymru North champions.

20-year-old Roberts is a player who really impressed for the Seasiders. So much so, that EFL League One side Tranmere Rovers were said to be interested in giving him a trial last summer and he is rumoured to have been training with the club recently also.

Roberts, who can play as a right back or centre back, really developed his game in tier two last season after impressing for the club in years gone by also.

Although it was the ‘bigger’ names at Prestatyn Town who received the most recognition last season, the promising Roberts certainly showed what he could do at the back. The energetic defender is great at getting forward too and offers a great delivery into the box from out wide.

Roberts has now signed for JD Cymru Premier club Flint Town United as of transfer deadline day this week. It is there that he re-United with former Prestatyn manager Neil Gibson – as well as a host of other former Prestatyn players such as Kai Edwards and Ben Maher.

Speaking to the club media about Roberts, Gibson said: “His work ethic, attitude and fitness are exceptional, all qualities that have enabled him to fit into the style of play I employ. He’s very comfortable on the ball and has a desire to defend with good positional awareness. I look forward to working with him again.

A player with a very bright future ahead who may just have a shot at English Football League football soon.
