Either (1) an overweight opposing forward that somehow always seems to manage to score against you, or (2) amusing banter from a player you'd love to hate but somehow have to grudgingly admire (opposite of an "Elding").

Career History
Tony Roberts is arguably the best goalkeeper playing in the Non-league game today. He started his career with Queens Park Rangers where he signed in 1987, staying for eleven season. During that period he made 145 appearances for the Super Hoops, and became international understudy to Neville Southall for the Welsh team, winning 2 under 21 caps and 2 full caps.

He took a break from the game following a serious finger injury and was persuaded back by Garry Hill when at St Albans City, then followed Hill to Dagenham & Redbridge signing at the start of the 2000/01 season. He won a single semi-pro cap for Wales during that season and it is believed he is the only player to have Welsh caps at both levels.

He is a very commanding keeper, and has a great rapport with the home fans, although has been known to have the odd spat with opposing supporters. Last season, Tony hit the headlines in the clubs FA Cup run, becoming the first goalkeeper to score a goal in open play in the history of the FA Cup with a last gasp equaliser against Basingstoke Town in the 4th Qualifying Round.

During the 2002 close-season, Tony was a member of the victorious Welsh semi-pro team that won the home nations tournament.

In 2002/03 Tony again had a great season, winning the FA Cup player of the round for his heroics and emotion during the 1-0 defeat at Norwich City in the 4th Round. He also mad the decisive save in the Conference play off semi-final penalty competition to take the Daggers to the final. During the close season he had a double hernia operation to sort out a long standing problem.
