BREAKING | Gary Roberts signs new one-year deal

    Chester Football Club are pleased to confirm that midfielder Gary Roberts has signed a new one-year deal with the club.

    The 31-year-old from Blacon has impressed since his arrival in January. Starting 12 games for the Blues, he completed the full 90 minutes in 11 of those matches.

    Gary came through the youth ranks at Crewe Alexandra and went on to make over 100 appearances for the Railwaymen – scoring 11 goals.

    He went on to feature at clubs such as Yeovil, Rotherham and Port Vale in the Football League. Roberts also played for England at U16, U17 and U19 levels; as well as Captaining the England Under-18’s.

    The Chester local began the 2017/18 season at Bangor City in the WPL and then Southport – scoring four goals in 14 games for the Port.

    Gary’s attitude and willingness to battle for the cause made him a fan favourite at the Swansway Chester Stadium during the final few months of the 2017-18 campaign – and he will now remain a Chester player as we begin life in the National League North.

    Welcome back, Gary!
