EVO-STIK League Whitby Town have transferred list striker Mikey Roberts.
The 26-year-old former Guisborough Town and Spennymoor Town hot-shot was told he could leave the Turnbull Ground on Tuesday after finding his opportunties limited since the start of the new season. Signed in July 2015 for an undisclosed fee, the highly rated marksman netted 24 goals in his maiden season. Before that he topped the scoring charts at the Moors in EVO-STIK League North with 20 goals.
In a statement on Tuesday, Seasiders officials said any interested parties must go through manager Chris Hardy to register an interest in the pacey frontman who was tracked by Premier League Crystal Palace while impressing at Guisborough Town in National League North.
The Seasiders said: "Whitby Town Football Club has placed Mikey Roberts on the transfer list. The striker has found opportunities limited with the club since the start of the season and will be allowed to move on by the club. Roberts is well-known for his energetic displays up front and has vast experience around Non-League football in the North East, including spells with Guisborough Town and Spennymoor Town."
