Forward Jordan Roberts is determined to help Caley Thistle record another memorable season, after joining the Highlanders on a one-year deal earlier this week.
Former Aldershot Town attacker Roberts completed his move to Inverness prior to Tuesday’s 5-0 win against Forres Mechanics, after scoring three goals for Caley Jags as a trialist in pre-season.
Inverness are fresh from the most successful season in the club’s 21-year history, qualifying for Europe for the first time through a record third-place finish in the Premiership, as well as winning the club’s first major silverware, with May’s 2-1 win against Falkirk securing the Scottish Cup.
Roberts expects a tough challenge in forcing his way into John Hughes’ side, but has already been impressed with his new manager’s plans.
The 21 year-old said: “My agent spoke about the club and the way they play football, and it appealed to me a lot. There was an opportunity to come up here and I’ve grabbed it with both hands.
“It’s good to be around a new bunch of lads and a new style of football I’m not used to playing. It’s good to be involved.
“I love the style of play the manager’s getting over to the players. It’s sharp, we’ve got to be on the ball and aware. It’s new to me so it’s a good side to add to my game and I’m happy to improve and work hard on that.
“I want to score goals and help the team out as much as I can. Hopefully it can be another successful year, they’ve just come off the back of winning the Scottish Cup so it’s not going to be easy to get into the team.
“I’ve got to do as much as you can through the week and in training for the manager to pick me on a Saturday.
“I’m looking to work hard and give the supporters something to cheer about.
“Hopefully it will be a good year.”
