Platt joined the Lakesiders in January as cover for Ashley Morris but he didnt play in the League for Bala.

Roberts picked up a clean sweep at the end of season awards celebration, but he has departed Latham Park after a successful second spell with the club. Roberts earned the plaudits this season for his outstanding performances, and manager Bernie McNally wishes him the best.

"It's very dissapointing to lose Robbo after he has done ever so well, but we wish him the very best," said McNally.
