Roberts heads to Southport...EMERGING goalkeeper, Liam Roberts, has returned from a fruitful loan spell at Rainworth MW and promptly linked up with Vanarama Conference outfit, Southport, on a loan deal until January.
The youth team product has benefitted greatly from playing regular, competitive games in the Evo-Stik League Northern Premier Division One South and is relishing the opportunity to test his ability at a higher level.
“This is a step up for Liam,” said manager, Dean Smith. “We’ve had some positive reports from his time at Rainworth and hopefully he can do well at Southport.
“It’s an opportunity for him to play regular games at a good level and also link up with Amadou Bakayoko who is doing well there.
“We’ll be monitoring their progress closely and hopefully everyone will benefit from this arrangement.”
