AFC Fylde have brought in young goalkeeper Theo Roberts on a work experience loan deal from Wigan Athletic.

Roberts has been with the Latics since 2015 and a string of impressive performances for the Academy side saw him included in the first team squad on several occasions last season.

The 19-year-old stopper, who spent time on loan with Atherton Collieries in December, will provide back up to first choice goalkeeper Jay Lynch, with Rhys Taylor on loan at Tranmere Rovers.
