One of the most significant signings made by Stevenage in recent seasons, the impact that Mark Roberts had on the fortunes of the club was both rapid and profound. His presence at the heart of the Boro' defence from the word go helped to steady a ship that was rocking after a poor run of form in November 2008.

Roberts' arrival coincided with the start of a run of results that led Boro' into the 2008/9 playoffs and the FA Trophy Final. Installed as captain following the departure of Steve Morison, the affectionately named 'Shirley' (after the Eastenders character) has the potential to become one of Boro's all-time greats.

Chipping in with goals against former club Northwich Victoria and former arch-rivals Altrincham illustrated his all-round capabilities, and expectations were high for the player's first full-season at Broadhall Way.

Robbo has become the first captain to lead Stevenage into the Football League and also led the side into npower League One. The Non-League Double may have eluded him, but the defender has added himself to an illustrious rollcall of Boro' greats through his no compromise attitude and immense presence.

Stats do not include expunged Chester City fixtures in 2009/10.
