Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One West promotion-chasers Atherton Collieries have signed midfielder Oliver Roberts from NPL Premier Division side Buxton.

Roberts is from Ashton-under-Lyme, starting his youth career at Stockport County in 2012.

His talent was spotted by Stoke City, and he switched youth teams.

In 2016 after signing first-team terms but not making a senior appearance, he joined Tamworth on loan, then Fleetwood Town permanently, making his debut against Carlisle United in the EFL Trophy.

The 22-year old joined Stalybridge Celtic in August 2017 and was almost ever-present that season, totalling 54 matches and scoring 4 goals.

In May he headed over to the United States with New Orleans Jesters and then started this season at Mickleover Sports before switching to Buxton.
