Gary Roberts would love to stay at Chester FC but insists any agreement to remain with the club must be right for himself and his family as the Blues prepare for the National League North.

The 31-year-old from Blacon penned a short-term deal with the Blues in January to play for his hometown club. The midfielder had his deal extended after the Community Trust and Chester Exiles supporters group joined forces to find funds to keep Roberts on the club’s books and ended up playing 12 times for the Blues this season .

“Obviously I’ve love to stay with the club, but it’s got to be right for me and the family and just what’s best,” he said.
