NEWS: Roberts Retained For 2021/22 Season

Durham Women FC are delighted to announce that Emily Roberts will remain with the club for the 2021/22 season.

The winger quickly became a fans’ favourite following her arrival in 2016 and played a key role in our record-breaking 2021/22 season.

Formerly of Doncaster Belles and Notts County, Roberts is another player rapidly closing in on making 100 appearances at Maiden Castle.

As well as chipping in with a number of assists, the forward also scored a number of crucial goals to help the club to a second place finish.

And after sadly missing the final weeks of the campaign through injury, Roberts is targeting another successful season in blue this time around.

“I’m really excited to be staying for another year at Durham,” she said.

“Sadly I ended last season with an injury, but I’m ready and raring to go to start the 2021/22 season.

“We came so close last season, so fingers crossed we can go one better this upcoming season.”

And cheering on the side every step of the way will be the Wildcats’ fans – who Roberts is looking forward to welcoming to Maiden Castle.

“I think I can say for all the players at Durham that the fans have been a great miss,” she added.

“The atmosphere and encouragement they bring makes playing a lot more enjoyable and gives you that boost to perform, so it will be great to see them back.”

On the news that Roberts will remain with the club, manager Lee Sanders said: “Em in full flight is a nightmare for any defender and she is one of the most exciting attacking players in the league.

“We really missed her towards the end of last season, but she has worked hard to overcome some injury set-backs and it is a huge plus to have her back next season.”

Emily Roberts is available to sponsor for the 2021/22 season. For just £500, businesses and individuals can benefit from a host of promotion – via our social media channels, website and match day programme – while also receiving their chosen player’s signed shirt! For more information, email
