Roberts on loan spell

Tyler Roberts reflects on his time with Shrewsbury Town

19 May 2017

Young West Bromwich Albion loanee Tyler Roberts has paid tribute to Shrewsbury Town after picking up the Young Player of the Year award.

Roberts played a vital role as Town avoided relegation to League One.

The 18 year old striker scored four goals in 13 games before injury saw him miss the final few games of the season.

Tyler spoke to our colleagues at West Brom about his time at the Greenhous Meadow.

“It was definitely an enjoyable loan spell”, Tyler said.

“I went there to get more game time and get more opportunity to play and start games and I was allowed to do that, so I enjoyed my time.

“I think it was good getting the goals in and getting my confidence up and then the fan supported me and gave me the confidence to think I could score in every game.

“It was a very good club. I was only there from when Paul Hurst was there and it was a very positive environment from the start really. I always felt we were going to stay up and it was never in doubt really.”


The Young Player of the Year Award is voted on by Paul Hurst and his management staff and Roberts was honoured to have picked up the prize.

“It’s a big honour for me and my family”, admitted Tyler.

“I would like to thank everyone there and everyone at Shrewsbury Town for the award. Shrewsbury will always have a place in my heart. It was one of my most enjoyable and successful times in football.”
