PRESTATYN Town manager Neil Gibson has added another talented player to his squad in the form of Callum Roberts.

The teenager made a big impression for wound-up Rhyl FC last season in JD Cymru North, and the player will now get an opportunity to play a role in the Seasiders’ retaining their title and securing an elusive promotion to the top-flight next season.

Roberts was part of the Welsh Academy squad that played against the Republic of Ireland in a high-profile double-header at JD Welsh Premier League grounds at Cefn Druids and Bala Town last season.

The former Rhyl High School pupil is currently studying at Coleg Llandrillo and was named on the bench for both games, coming on in the second half in both contests to further enhance his experience of playing on the big stage.

This significant achievement is made even more impressive by the fact that Roberts was one of four lower age players in the U18 squad.

The talented youngster made positive progress last year with the Lilywhites having made his debut against Llandudno in the Nathaniel MG Cup in October as a second-half substitute.

He was also part of the first-team squad for the away game at Flint Town United, and saw the field plenty of times during the second half of the campaign, which turned out to be the club’s last in their 141-year history after failing to find the £175,000 needed to stay afloat until May 2021.

Roberts is the second summer signing to arrive at the Motion Finance Stadium, with talented forward Shaun Cavanagh joining the club after spells with Caernarfon Town and Porthmadog last season.

Perhaps more importantly for the Seasiders’ as the vast majority of senior squad members committing their immediate futures to spearhead their promotion charge once again.
