Stuart Roberts (born 22 July 1980 in Carmarthen) is a Welsh former professional footballer. He is a midfielder and currently with Carmarthen Town. He has represented Wales at Under-21 level.

Roberts began his career as a trainee with Swansea City, turning professional in August 1998. His first team debut came on 11 August 1998 when he was a late substitute for Jon Coates in the 1-1 draw at home to Norwich City in the League Cup. His league debut came four days later in the 2-1 defeat away to Cambridge United, this time as a second-half substitute for Ryan Casey.

With Swansea in the midst of a financial crisis, Roberts spent part of the 2001 pre-season on trial with Rotherham United and moved to Wycombe Wanderers in October 2001 for a fee of £100,000. He remained with Wycombe until February 2004 when he returned to Swansea, initially on loan, but a month later on a free transfer. He later claimed that his time at Wycombe under Lawrie Sanchez had 'destroyed him as a player and a person'.

Released at the end of the season, he joined Chester City on a non-contract basis in June 2004.

Roberts joined Kidderminster Harriers in August 2004, but was released a month later and joined Forest Green Rovers. He was released by Forest Green at the end of the 2004-05 season.

In July 2005 he returned to Wales, joining Aberystwyth Town, where he was a regular for three years before joining Carmarthen Town in August 2008.
