Oxford United fans go mad on Twitter for new signing Kemar Roofe

Oxford United Kassam Stadium

The winger scored six goals in his last seven games for Oxford United whilst on loan from West Brom.

Oxford United yesterday announced the permanent signing of Kemar Roofe on a three-year deal from West Bromwich Albion. The winger, who was out of contract in the summer at The Hawthorns, had been on loan at the Kassam Stadium for the past few months and has impressed at the club.

The majority of his West Brom career has been spent out on loan. He has had varying degrees of success during stints with Vikingur Reykjavik, Northampton Town, Cheltenham Town and Colchester United.

He never made his first-team debut for The Baggies, although he has been named on the bench on a couple of occasions.

The 22-year-old has been in great form in League Two. He won the division player of the month award for April and scored six goals in 16 appearances for the club since arriving in February.

His arrival has gone down monumentally well with Oxford fans. They have fallen in love with Roofe since his arrival and have been copying his trademark celebration. Roofe makes an 'A' with his hands, in homage to A-Star Sports. It is a celebration that has been going on for about seven years now with other players to have done it including Andrew Johnson, Titus Bramble and Micah Richards.

It is clear to see that while Roofe never made the grade at West Brom, he is already a hero at Oxford. Baggies fans should follow his progress with interest.
