Two-year deal as Cardiff Met striker becomes the Welsh Premier League’s latest export
League One outfit AFC Wimbledon have secured the services of Cardiff Met striker Adam Roscrow.
The 24-year-old moves on a two-year deal after firing the Archers to the Nathanial MG Cup and into Europe last season.
Roscrow, who netted 15 goals in 25 WPL appearances last term, has been widely tipped to break into the Football League and had been linked with clubs in both England and Scotland throughout the season, including a brief trial with Motherwell.
Amidst speculation that he could be the next export to make it into the Football League this summer, Adam Roscrow single-handedly put Cardiff Met ahead, demonstrating the strength, pace and composure that we are now all too familiar with.
Now 24-years-old, Roscrow looks to be in his prime after overcoming injuries and returning to full fitness, in what has been his best season yet. With his performances in the ascendancy, Roscrow is a game away from being able to showcase his talent on the European stage where he can add to his growing stock. With rumoured interest from clubs in both England and Scotland, if his big chance is to come, you suspect it will materialise in the next few months.My take on Adam Roscrow’s future earlier this season.
Neither Cardiff Met or Wimbledon have disclosed any further details on the transfer.
Roscrow played a key role in helping Cardiff Met navigate their way from the lower tiers of the Welsh game culminating in last month’s historic WPL Play-Off final victory, which secured the club a place in the Europa League qualifying rounds for the first time.
The time for Roscrow to make the move appears right – last season Roscrow looked the sharpest I’ve seen him look as a Welsh Premier League form and turned in some explosive performances, scoring nine goals in 10 games during one particular run, as well as hitting all four goals in Cardiff Met’s 4-0 win over Llanelli.
Roscrow has the pace, strength, movement and composure that would be needed to make the step up to a higher level and it will be fascinating to see how he adapts to life in League One with the security of a two-year contract.
