Whitby Town striker Mikey Roberts was elated to score the decisive goals that saw Whitby Town lift the North Riding Senior Cup.

Roberts netted a brace after being introduced as a second-half substitute to ensure Whitby’s first success in the competition in 12 years.

And the forward couldn’t have been happier with his impact.

“It was a great feeling,” Roberts told the Whitby Gazette.

“We needed a lift after half-time and I’m glad that I could provide it and turn the game around.

“It’s been a bit of a frustrating season for me, in terms of goals, but Chris said needed to boost our levels and showed faith in me to help do that.”
