Gary Roberts

Transfer : Chesterfield – Portsmouth



Pompey have signed Gary Roberts from Chesterfield for an undisclosed fee.

The 31-year-old midfielder has penned a three-year deal to link up with his former Spireites manager Paul Cook at Fratton Park

The Blues boss said: “I’m delighted that we’ve signed Gary and I view this as a no-risk transfer, which is always great.

“His record speaks for itself and I’m sure the fans will be looking forward to seeing him in action.”

The former Liverpool youth player started his professional career in Wales before signing for Accrington in 2005.

He was a team-mate of Cook and Pompey assistant manager Leam Richardson during his time at the Crown Ground.

Roberts moved on to play for Ipswich, Huddersfield and Swindon, arriving at Chesterfield in the summer of 2013 and helping them win promotion from the fourth tier.

He scored 20 goals in 89 appearances for the Derbyshire club, including the winner against Fleetwood in May 2014 that secured the League Two title.

Pompey have completed the signing of Enda Stevens on a two-year deal.

The Irish left-back arrives as a free agent following his release from Aston Villa at the start of last week.

The 24-year-old becomes Pompey’s third signing of the summer, joining Kyle Bennett and Kal Naismith in landing at Fratton Park.

Stevens made 32 appearances on loan at Doncaster Rovers in League One last season.

Craig Westcarr has today sealed his Pompey exit – and joined Mansfield Town.

The striker struggled to impress at Fratton Park, and with one year of his contract remaining it was mutually agreed he could depart.

Paul Cook previously managed Westcarr at Chesterfield, where his stay suffered a similar fate.

The former Walsall man was one of Andy Awford’s main recruits in the summer of 2014.

However, he scored only seven goals in 37 appearances last season.

Westcarr becomes the 10th player to leave Fratton Park since Cook took over the helm almost a month ago.

Speaking to the Mansfield club website, Westcarr said: ‘I had a chat with the new manager at Portsmouth (Paul Cook) and it wasn’t going to work out there, so I came here and the manager told me what he wants and what his outline is for the season.’
