A sublime talent, Javia Roberts is a tricky and diminutive wide man with blistering pace.
Described by Carl Abbott as ‘a frightening signing at this level and a full back’s nightmare’, he was a young professional at Shrewsbury Town. where he made first team appearances, before moving on to Hereford United.
Following the Bulls’ demise, he moved to Solihull Moors and then Rushall Olympic, where he played with team mate Liam Smith, and from where he links up with AFC.
Having been capped as a youth international by his country Jamaica, he represented their Under 23 side shortly before linking up with Carl Abbott’s side.
After an impressive start to life in an AFC shirt, he was snapped up by Southern League Central outfit Bedford Town, but despite playing well he returned to AFC six weeks later due to travel commitments.
