ACCRINGTON Stanley gaffer John Coleman has today pounced on free agent, Mark Roberts who’s contract with Nortwich Victoria expired just two days ago.

Roberts, 23, has signed a 12 month deal at the Fraser Eagle Stadium.

The central defender started his career with non-league outfit Vauxhall Motors, before the then Championship outfit Crewe Alexandra snapped him up in 2003.

Loan spells with Chester, Southport and Northwich followed whilst at Gresty Road.

In January though, the defender was released and signed a deal until the end of last season with Northwich, the contract came to an end on Sunday.

Welcome to the heat and sun of East Lancashire Mark.
