    Utterly tragic news. 24 is a very young age for a goalkeeper, and he could have had a long and possibly successful career ahead of him, which will not now be realised. R.I.P

    How very sad especially at this time of year english football has lost out on a future keeper R.I.P

    Rushden & Diamonds fan and season ticket holder here.

    Dale was a smashing lad and his untimely death will have a affect on our fan base for some time because he was so well liked and always acted in a very professional and polite manner and played with a smile on his face at all times.

    My thoughts are with his family and close friends on their sad loss.
    RIP Dale, you will never, ever be forgotten at Nene Park.

    Kettering Town fan here… RIP Dale Roberts, a great talent and one of the nicest and best keepers I have seen at rockingham road and definitely in the Blue Square Prem. No place for rivalries at a time like this…

    Condolences to all his friends, family and everyone close to him, including the whole R&D squad.
