Football: Rigg signs for the Dons

3:53pm Thursday 22nd May 2014

FORMER Charfield footballer Sean Rigg has joined League Two club AFC Wimbledon.

The 25-year-old became a free agent at the end of last season when his two-year contract at Oxford United came to an end after he made 72 appearances in his two seasons at the Kassam Stadium.

Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley had apparently been tracking the former Port Vale, Bristol Rovers and Forest Green winger for some time.

Ardley told Dons Player: "I have always liked him when Sean’s played against us and been impressed when I’ve watched him in games.

“I contacted a few people that I trust at Oxford and the feedback I got was that they were stunned that he’d been released because he was one of their better players.

"That’s really positive. Sean works really hard, he’s quick and direct, and can score goals, which is obviously an area we are trying to improve upon."

He added: "His biggest strength is running at defenders down the left side, but if we need to change things in games and throw someone up front then he can also do that too.

"I’m really confident that he will be a good signing.”
