Education

Roberts was educated at Wolfreton School.

Career

Roberts made his debut against Bury in March 1979, coming on as a substitute for the injured Alan Warboys. He was made Captain of the team in his early twenties. He played primarily in midfield, although in the later stages of his career he was also deployed in defence as a full-back or sweeper.

Roberts was forced to retire from professional football at the age of 31 due to injuries. His testimonial match saw Hull-born Nick Barmby make his debut for Tottenham Hotspur and score two goals against his hometown club.

Roberts was voted 17th in a list of the top 100 Hull City players compiled for the club's centenary.
