Aberystwyth Town are delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Connor Roberts, who joins the Club on a season long loan from his parent Club The New Saints. 26 year old Connor has been with the Saints for two years, after joining the JD Cymru Premier Champions from Bangor City in 2018.
He began his professional career with Everton in 2011, and following a couple of loan moves he switched to Cheltenham Town a year later, where he spent two seasons with the Gloucestershire club. A year with Chester was followed by a move into top flight Welsh football, when he moved to Bangor City, where he starred between 2015-18.
On the international stage, Roberts has represented Wales at u19s level four times with six appearances for the U21s. In 2014 he received a call-up to the senior squad for the friendly against the Netherlands.
This season Connor has figured in all of TNS’s European Squads this season but will revert to Black and Green henceforth, and will be available for selection for tomorrow evening’s match at Barry Town.
Everyone at the Club welcomes Connor to Park Avenue and we look forward to a successful loan period. He will wear Squad Number 1.
