Legends reunite for Roberts 

Whole host of stars turn out at the County Ground 
  
A whole host of Chelsea stars – including Gianfranco Zola, Gus Poyet and former Town manager Dennis Wise – turned out at the County Ground last night for the testimonial of Christian Roberts.

The Swindon winger was forced to retire earlier this season with a knee-injury - but no one could stop him making one last appearance in front of the fans, albeit from the sidelines.

And what a cracking game it was.

The Chelsea legends eventually running out 3-2 winners against a Town XI featuring a mix of players from the past and present.
 

Zola himself showing he’d lost none of his old magic by bagging a hattrick in front of a crowd of just over 3,000. 
 
Roberts also delighted that the game helped raise money for Cancer Research, after his father died of the disease back in October just after he announced his retirement.
