BREAKING | Kevin Roberts returns to Chester!

Chester FC are pleased to announce the signing of Kevin Roberts following his release from Wrexham.

The move comes 12 years on from Roberts making his senior debut at Chester, back in 2007.

The versatile defender and midfielder is a product of the Chester City Academy, and made his debut at the Deva in 2007. From Liverpool, Roberts went on to make 81 appearances for City, scoring seven goals.

The 29-year-old then moved on to make over 100 appearances at Cambridge United and also at FC Halifax Town before joining Wrexham for an undisclosed fee in 2017.

Kevin made over 70 appearances at the Welsh club, and has now signed an initial one-year deal at the Swansway Chester Stadium.

Speaking to ChesterFC.com, Bernard Morley said: “We are delighted to have signed a player who has already won this division – and it was a very strong league when FC Halifax were promoted.

“He adds massive experience and can play in a number of positions. Kevin is a winner. He played a big part in Wrexham’s promotion push last year and we’re very happy to have him on board.”

Welcome back to Chester FC, Kevin!
