First Signing For Saddlers

According to the Express and Star, the Saddlers have made their first signing of the summer – Doncaster Rovers centre back Steve Roberts.

Roberts is 28 and 6 feet 1 and a former Welsh under 21 International. He started his career with Wrexham in 1998, moving to Doncaster Rovers on a free transfer in August 2005. Last season he was called up to the full Welsh squad by John Toshack, but didn’t make an appearance.

His career has been a little stop start at his two clubs, making 217 starts since 1998, an average of just over 20 a season, but he is highly thought of by the Donny fans and it seems that they had offered him a contract extension following their promotion to the Championship, but we have given him a longer deal.
