Karleigh Osborne has put an injury-hit start to the campaign behind him and is delighted to be back out on the pitch for Aldershot Town, report Surrey Live.
The 30-year-old ex Brentford defender was brought in by Gary Waddock for the very qualities he displayed in Shots’ 2-0 win against Dover Athletic on Saturday. His presence, will to win and leadership skills brought a calmness to the Shots, who were also helped by the return of Jake Cole in goal.
Osborne said the team spirit was key as the club picked up their fourth win in six home matches.
“It was a good result, everybody worked their socks off from the boys who started to the boys that came in,” he said. “The boys that weren’t involved, too, everybody was around and in the changing room so it was a fantastic atmosphere from start to finish.”
Osborne is just relieved to be involved again after signing in the summer from Grimsby Town.
“It’s been a troubled start,” he admitted. “I had a calf injury and then came back from that but did something next to my Achilles tendon. But now it’s all good.”
