Born in England, Philip played for Charlton Athletic and Norwich City in his youth before joining Arsenal in June 2010. He played for academy sides before going out on loan to Inverness Caledonian Thistle in August 2012, initially until next January.

Roberts was also released by Arsenal at the end of the 2012/13 season.

Having trialled with Wycombe Wanderers, Philip joined Falkirk in the Scottish Championship in July 2013.
