Formerly of Newcastle United, where he spent a decade in the academy between 2005 and 2015, he signed a professional contract in the January shortly after making his professional debut in an FA Cup tie against Leicester City. Four years on, he netted his first professional goal in the same competition, this time against Blackburn Rovers.

Gaining experience of National League North, Roberts scored 17 goals in his campaign at the club, earning himself a move to Notts County, where he would register 20 goals in his time at Meadow Lane.
With appearances for England U20s and England C, he spent last season at Pittodrie but is looking forward to moving back into the English game: “It’s an exciting project to be part of. Obviously the club is not where it should be and I want to help get the club back into the EFL. It’s going to be exciting times for the club and fans this coming season.
“I am looking to get back playing football again on a weekly basis and enjoying it at training and match days. The ultimate aim this season is to win the league and achieve promotion with more to come in the future too.
“The only aim for me is to help the club win the league and hopefully everything goes to plan and I can get back to enjoying playing football again.”
