Roberts has been Cambridge's regular first choice right-back this term

Cambridge United full-back Kevin Roberts has signed a new 12-month deal, keeping him at the club until 2012.

The 21-year-old made 38 Blue Square Bet Premier appearances this term, predominantly at right-back.

An arrival from Chester in January 2010, Roberts has played 44 times in the league for the U's.

"Robbo was a really consistent performer throughout my three months in charge," manager Jez George told the club website.

"He is an excellent character, has good experience for such a young age and played a massive part in making us harder to beat in the latter part of last season.

"I also think there is more to come from him as a player and I am delighted that he has committed to the club for another year."

Roberts added: "I'm all for Jez's philosophies and what he is trying to achieve at the club.

"I'm really looking forward to this season after last season's disappointments.

"I want to hit the ground running, stay away from injuries and carry on my good form from the end of last season."
