Goalkeeping Coach - Tony Roberts

Former Wales international Tony Roberts was appointed the club’s new first-team goalkeeping coach in June, 2015.

Roberts, who joined from Arsenal, replaced Javier Garcia who returned to his home in Spain for personal reasons after 12 months at the club.
Roberts enjoyed a distinguished goalkeeping career that spanned over two decades. Having come through the youth ranks at QPR, he made nearly 150 appearances for the West London club before spending a season with Millwall in 1998.

However, after a brief coaching stint in America, Roberts returned to English football with non-league Dagenham & Redbridge in 2000 to become a firm fans' favourite.

He played over 450 games for the Daggers - helping them win promotion to the Football League for the first time in 2007 - and remains the club's all-time record appearance maker.

It was during his time at the Daggers that Roberts began coaching with Arsenal's Academy before stepping up to work with the first team in 2010-11. He returned to the Academy set up last season.

He fitted his Arsenal role around his playing commitments with Dagenham & Redbridge until he brought a glittering playing career to an end in the summer of 2013.

Roberts also won two caps for Wales and is the only goalkeeper to have scored in an FA Cup tie when he netted for Dagenham & Redbridge against Basingstoke Town in October 2001.

He is also the goalkeeping coach for the senior Wales international team.
