Jordan Roberts

Jordan Roberts would technically serve Motherwell during three spells starting early February 2021 until May 2022 with small gaps in-between.

It would be fair to say that when he arrived on loan from Hearts it was viewed as a bit of an underwhelming signing simply because he had struggled to cement a regular starting berth in a side who were playing in the Scottish Championship.

Needless to say he quickly won over the ‘Well support as he helped dig a struggling side out of relegation trouble. Roberts was in the traditional winger mould as he had pace in abundance and was more than happy in taking on defenders, he was also capable of playing in a more central attacking role when required.

Jordan would make his debut against Celtic at Parkhead as the Steelmen fell to a 1-2 defeat, sadly a last gasp clearance off of the line denied the side a deserved point.

He scored his first goal for the club at Easter Road when the side brushed aside Hibernian, Tony Watt provided a scrumptious through ball and Roberts was on hand to calmly finish. Furthermore he would enjoy a Scottish Cup double against Formartine United but sadly just as he was looking like a key player for the side, an injury against St Mirren would end his season.

The form in his short spell in North Lanarkshire wouldn’t go unnoticed as Hearts manager Robbie Neilson stated he would get his chance to prove himself at Tynecastle despite ‘Well boss Graham Alexander saying he would be eager to bring him back. Despite featuring in Maroon for one league cup game for the Jambo’s, Jordan returned to Motherwell on loan for a second spell in August 2021 with the deal expiring in early January 2021, after a short return to Hearts upon the loan expiry, Roberts would sign a short term deal with Motherwell that would see him through to the end of the season.

His form throughout the 2021/22 season was no where near the high standards he had set in his first spell with the club as he struggled to nail down a regular starting berth. The main highlights were no doubt scoring a stunning goal against Ross County in Dingwall and playing a vital part in the side coming back from 2 goals down at Ibrox to secure a 2-2 draw.

Having failed to set the heather on fire in the first half of the campaign it was quite surprising that management brought him back for another spell.

Prior to joining Hearts, Jordan can count the likes of Aldershot, Crawley Town and Ipswich Town amongst his former employers. He actually had one season playing in Scotland earlier in his career where he represented Inverness CT, during this spell he actually scored a stunning last minute winner for the Caley Jags that knocked Motherwell out of the Scottish Cup in February 2016.

Upon his departure from Motherwell he would quickly sign for English League Two side Stevenage.
