Robbo Retires 

Fans favourite forced to leave STFC
 
Swindon Town star Christian Roberts retires from football

Christian Roberts
retires from football
Swindon Town star Christian Roberts has been forced to retire from an 11-year footballing career, after extensive operations could not fix a recurring knee injury.
 
The 28-year-old Welshman joined the Robins in 2005 from Bristol City, making a real name for himself with the fans when he scored on his debut against Oldham.
 
But after a summer plagued by a microfracture of his right knee, Christian officially terminated his contract at SN1 yesterday.
 
Fans and teammates will be sad to see him go.
 
Fans favourite
 
Making a total of 126 appearances for the Robins and scoring 27 goals, Robbo has played a significant part in the Swindon squad.
 
And more importantly he was there to help Town achieve League One promotion in 2007, after 45 appearances and 13 goals during the 06/07 season.

But it wasn't just the fans who had a soft spot for our Robbo - even Radio 1's 'big dog' hip-hop DJ Tim Westwood gave him a mention when he visited Swindon earlier this year.

If you want to say a final goodbye to the winger, he'll be making an appearance at Town's home game against Millwall on Sunday.
