Magpies Move for Roberts

Tim Sills, manager of Pitching In Southern League Division One South club Wimborne Town, has announced the signing of defender Sam Roberts from Southern Premier Division South side Salisbury.

The 26-year-old started his career at AFC Totton at the age of 19, playing for the reserves for just short of a year, before making the first team.

The following season he was involved more regularly with the first team, making many appearances.

A long-term injury cut the centre-back’s next season short, but upon his return to fitness he spent a couple of months with Wessex Leaguers Hamble FC.

The season of 2018/19 he left AFC Totton to join Winchester City, where he impressed in pre-season and fixed his place in the starting line-up.

After six months he was approached by Gosport Borough, and agreed to sign halfway through the year, and played an important part of Boro’s survival in 2018/19.

He moved to league rivals Salisbury in June 2020.

Sills told his club’s website: “Signing Sam is another real statement of intent as he brings a wealth of higher league experience. Despite offers from higher league clubs he joins us excited to be part of what we and the club are building”.
