Aldershot Town's Oliver Risser eyes fresh start after Swindon exit

Oliver Risser

Oliver Risser is looking to establish himself at Aldershot after joining the League Two side on a six-month deal.

The midfielder joins the Shots after 18 months with Swindon Town.

The 32-year-old told BBC Surrey: "From the start of the season I didn't have too much of a big chance and that's why I went on loan to Stevenage.

"After my loan I went back to Swindon and nothing had changed. This move is a possibility for me to play again at a competitive level."

Risser says that family reasons played a large part in his decision to move to the EBB Stadium.

"I did not want to move home as I have my family here [in the south]," he said.

"I wanted to stay in League One but this was a decision due to my family.

"We have moved so many times over the past year, I have got a little baby and we are settling down."
