Former Welsh international Gareth Roberts has signed for County, the 37 year old started his career at Liverpool before spending time at Greek side Panionios, Tranmere Rovers, Doncaster Rovers, Derby County, Bury, Notts County and finally Chester. Roberts has played over 550 times in his career and his experience on the left side of defence could be vital.
Any staticians amongst you know when we last had a 37 year old player? Me neither! But this signing confirms a move away from a squad based around developing youngsters and let’s hope it becomes one which is all about getting the job done. Nothing less than promotion.
