Dan Roberts signs National League forms with Slough Town

Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division Windsor’s top scorer Dan Roberts has signed Vanarama National League forms with South Division side Slough Town.

Roberts is Windsor’s top scorer this season with 25 goals in 34 games and was a key player in the Royalists run to the Fifth Round of the FA Vase.

According to a post on the Slough website, Roberts has joined the Rebels on dual registration and will be involved in the matchday squad on Saturday when Town make the short trip to Hampton & Richmond Borough.

Speaking to the Rebels website, joint managers Neil Baker and Jon Underwood said: “Dan will remain a Windsor player until the end of the season, and with the blessing of manager Micky Woodham we will involve him when appropriate. This enables us to get a good look at him, and will give us a better idea of whether he can bridge the three division gap, however he has electric pace with an eye for goal, and may offer us a different option to what we already have.

“With Windsor not playing this weekend, Dan will form part of our squad, and this has helped enable Manny [Williams] to get an important 90 minutes under his belt, however Dan will be back with Windsor on Tuesday.”
