Bristol Rovers FC Player Profiles

With Rovers freshly promoted to League One, manager Darrell Clarke’s steady strengthening of his side included the acquisition of full back Connor Roberts in a six month loan deal.

Roberts arrived at The Memorial Stadium on 24th August 2016 and the young Welshman came with a glowing reputation from Yeovil Town, where he had spent a season on loan, playing twice against Rovers and excelling in a defence which held firm as the season progressed to ensure the Glovers were not dragged into a relegation dogfight. 

Roberts was named as the club’s Player of the Year as well as earning a Welsh U-21 cap against Romania in March 2016 to add to a solitary appearance for the Wales 

U-19 side. 

Formerly alongside another Rovers loanee, Oliver McBurnie, at Swansea Roberts will compete for a first team spot with full/wing/backs Daniel Leadbitter and Lee Brown.
