Biography

Patrick Roberts catches the eye as a result of his impressive blend of skill and technique, be that playing in behind a central striker or when drifting in from the right flank. His close control and confident dribbling ability also make him a valuable attacking outlet.

After a highly positive 2012/13 season for Roberts, the Club received a boost following his 17th birthday, as he signed a professional deal keeping him at Craven Cottage until June 2016. 

The following month he made his debut for the First Team away to Manchester City, before being handed a home debut against Everton.

Roberts played a major role as Fulham U18s reached the FA Youth Cup Final for the first ever time in 2013/14, although it ultimately ended in heartache as Chelsea secured a 7-6 aggregate victory.

His campaign ended on a huge high, though, as he starred for England as they came home from Malta with the European Under-17 Championship trophy. At the tournament, Roberts topped the assist chart with four, and was also the joint second highest scorer with three goals to his name.

He was a regular in the matchday squad in 2014/15, although the majority of his appearances came from the bench.
