Roberts has recently been released by Oxford, but his match experience came in the National league with Guiseley on loan. He’s just 22 and played once for the U’s, but scored three in 18 for Guiseley. They were relegated at the end of last season and he struggled in a weak side.
He exploded onto the Oxford scene in 2014/15 as one of their hottest prospects, bagging a brace on his first senior start as Oxford hammered Grimsby in the FA Cup. That’s the only reason I’ve added him to the list, Jamie Clarke anyone?
Seriously, he’s faded a little but at 22 there’s lots to work with and I firmly believe that Danny, Nicky and of course John Akinde and Matt Green are the perfect people for a young striker to be working with. If we were plotting a move for a young player I’d like it to be Shaw, but Roberts does have something to offer. My gut feeling, despite me adding him here, is a National League move. Someone might just be getting a bargain.
