BANGOR City captain Gary Roberts has been handed a six-match ban by the FAW which means he is ruled-out until the final week of March.

As a result, City have moved quickly to fill the gap by recalling Sion Edwards from his loan spell at Rhyl.

Midfielder Roberts picked up two cautions and a red card in the 3-2 televised defeat at Bala Town last Saturday. He has now been shown 15 yellow cards this term, bringing a three-match suspension, with another three games for serious foul play which led to the red.

Roberts, who has already served a three-match ban earlier this season, joined the Citizens last summer from Witton Albion. The Chester-born 30-year-old represented England at all levels from Under-16 to Under-19 but his Football League career was blighted by off-field problems. He made 133 appearances in all competitions for Crewe Alexandra before moves to Yeovil Town (on-loan), Rotherham United, Port Vale and Mansfield Town.

Roberts spent the first half of 2013 on-loan at Floriana in Malta and joined Gap Connah's Quay in January 2014, returning to Malta with Mosta FC a year later.
