Young stopper moves to National League side...Goalkeeper Liam Roberts has today joined National League side Chester on a season-long loan deal.
The 21-year-old, who signed a new one-year contract with Walsall last month, has previously enjoyed loan spells with Romulus, Rushall Olympic, Rainworth, Southport, Gresley and Rugby.
“This is a massive opportunity for me to prove what I can do,” said Roberts.
“Walsall have been excellent for me over the last couple of years and I want to stay here and keep progressing under the coaching staff because they’ve done so well for me.
“But the next step in my career is game development. If I can get as many games as I can under my belt with Chester, in that environment, then it’ll be a very good season for me.
“They get good crowds and play against some big clubs, the likes of Tranmere, so this will be a great experience for me and I can’t wait to get started.”
