Centre-half Roberts helped Town to the best defensive record in the Evo-Stik Premier Division as they conceded just 33 goals in the season just past.

At the other end of the field, Gray was the team’s top goalscorer – hitting the new 18 times in all competitions.

Roberts, who was named in the division’s team of the year alongside defensive partner Raven, believes remaining with the club was one of the more simple calls he has had to make.

“It’s one of the easiest decisions I’ve had to make in my career,” he said.

“I’ve really enjoyed it here – I’ve said a few times over the past couple of months that being here has helped me fall back in love with football.

“As a local boy, to be in this team doing well is something I’m really passionate about.

“Happiness is key because that’s when you play your best football.

“I’ve been very fortunate to have a long career and I’ve tried to learn from the good and bad times.

“Last year, we had some really special moments and it was a pleasure to be part of.”
