Rigg optimistic for future

Winger eager to improve his goals return

Sean Rigg believes that AFC Wimbledon will improve next season and the emergence of young players coming through will benefit Neal Ardley’s squad.

in League 2.thThough the 26-year-old winger struck seven goals during his first season at Wimbledon, he was disappointed with that return and the club’s finishing position of 15

However, Rigg reckons there are plenty of positives for Wimbledon to build on for the 2015/16 campaign.

“I think we have a good set of lads here and we can move forward next season,” said Rigg. “The new players who came in did themselves justice and I think we can improve again. Ryan Sweeney is a young lad, but he has fitted in straight away at the back. He does not look out of place at all. Ryan has a good presence, he is good in the air, and calm on the ball. Tom Beere is a good midfielder, who can get forward and get his shots off. He is a good battler too. Hopefully, they can both push on next season and get more games.

“It was an improvement for the club this season and that’s one of the positives we can take from it. But we did underachieve and I think everyone will agree with that. The last couple of months we have lacked that edge in front of goal. We have not been clinical enough and that is something we will have to work on.”

Rigg added that he has settled in really well at Wimbledon after leaving Oxford United last summer.

“I have really enjoyed my football here,” added Rigg. “The lads and the staff have made me feel very welcome and I am hoping to improve again next season. I was hoping to get into double figures for the season, but seven goals is not too bad. I want to be more clinical. In the last couple of weeks of the season goalkeepers have made good saves to stop me and it could have been a different story if a few of those had gone in. Hopefully next season I can get into double figures.”
