Date of birth: 16/09/2000
Joined town: January 2021
Signed from: Birmingham City
Harrogate Town secured the services of young defender Mitchell Roberts on loan from Birmingham City until the end of the season in January 2021.
Highly thought of by those at Birmingham, Mitchell joined their academy at the age of 10, having been scouted playing Sunday League football.
The 20-year-old has made his way through the age groups, most recently playing for the under 23s side after impressing with Birmingham’s Under 18s team during the 2018/19 campaign.
Comfortable playing at centre half or on the left of a back four, Roberts signed his first professional deal with the Blues in 2019 and had to show resilience to battle back from an injury that hampered him during his first year as an academy scholar.
