Ardley Pleased With Rigg Impact

Ardley Pleased With Rigg Impact

Following on from the victory over Aldershot and Sean Rigg's second goal for the club, manager Neal Ardley has said that he's expecting him to be a big player for us this season.

Speaking to the Official Site about the 25 year old, the gaffer explained.

'I think Sean has been outstanding from day one. Sean has been the best in training and in every game he's played for us he has been one of our best players. He's scored two goals and his work rate and desire has been phenomenal. He's going to be an important player for us, let's hope we keep him fit and give him the service he needs.'

Despite the Aldershot game ending in a three nil victory for us, Ardley did admit that he gave the players a dressing down at the half time break because he didn't like what he saw in the first half.

'The first half was not just lacking, it was absymal. The last thing I said to the players was that I would accept most things in this game, but let's go out and play with the intensity that we will need next week. It turned out to be the polar opposite in the first half and you would not have wanted to be around me at half time. I told the players what I felt in no uncertain terms.'

Pleasingly for the gaffer though whatever he said had the desired impact and he said that everything we could control in the second period we did, and the performance was far better as was the desire from the players.

'You could see the difference. I said to them afterwards that we have a good quality of player, but we are nothing without team work and work ethic. We dominated the second half and I thought Bayo was outstanding.'
