Cheltenham Town's back-up goalkeeper Connor Roberts has been named in the Wales Under-21 squad to face Iceland on February 6.

Boss Geraint Williams has named seven uncapped players in the squad for the friendly, including Roberts.

The Wrexham-born 20-year-old joined Cheltenham on a one-year deal following his release from Everton last summer, but he is yet to make his first team debut due to the form of number one Scott Brown.

Wales Under-21 squad to face Iceland at Stebonheath Park, Llanelli on 6 February: Connor Roberts (Cheltenham Town), Danny Ward ( Liverpool), Danny Alfei (Swansea City - On loan at Wrexham), Kieron Freeman (Derby County), Jonathan Meades (AFC Bournemouth - On loan at AFC Wimbledon), Scott Tancock (Swansea City ), Joe Walsh (Crawley Town), Billy Bodin (Torquay United), Elliott Hewitt (Ipswich Town), Emyr Huws (Manchester City), Lloyd Isgrove (Southampton), Tom Lawrence (Manchester United), Lee Lucas (Swansea City), Jonathan Williams (Crystal Palace), Wes Burns (Bristol City), Jake Cassidy (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Chris Dawson ( Leeds United), Robert Ogleby (Wrexham).

    Well done Connor - enjoy every moment of it! Maybe if Chelt have been promoted with matches to spare we will see you in the Robins 1st 11 by the end of the season.
