Mark Alan Roberts (born 16 October 1983) is an English footballer who plays for League One side Stevenage as a defender.

Roberts started his career at Crewe Alexandra at the age of 11, and progressed through the youth ranks at the club; signing a professional contract with The Railwaymen at the age of 19. He played a total of six times during his seven years on the club's books, and was sent out on loan no fewer than five times during his spell at the club. Following a successful loan spell at his hometown club, Northwich Victoria, he joined the club on a permanent basis in 2007. Roberts played 20 games for the Cheshire club during the second half of the 2006 07 season, before returning to the Football League with Accrington Stanley in summer 2007. He played 37 games for the club, before being loaned out to his former club, Northwich Victoria, a move which was later made permanent.

During the 2008 09 season, Roberts attracted the attention of Stevenage — and joined the Hertfordshire side on an initial one-month loan deal, before signing permanently in January 2009 for an undisclosed fee. He was made team captain ahead of the 2009 10 season, a campaign in which Roberts would help lead the side to the Football League for the first time in the club's history. The following season, Roberts helped guide the club to back-to-back promotions following their sixth place finish and subsequent League Two play-off victory in May 2011.
