Aldershot Town boss Kevin Dillon has confirmed that Omer Riza has joined the club until the end of the season. 30-year old striker Omer Riza has signed for The Shots until the end of the season. The former Shrewsbury Town striker, who has been on trial in North Hampshire for the last few weeks has been given the chance to impress until the summer following the departure of John Grant, who has moved to Blue Square Premier leader, Oxford United in a loan deal that also runs until the summer, when he will become a free agent. Speaking to the clubs official website www.theshots.co.uk, Dillon said: "With John Grant joining Oxford United earlier this week it was important that we signed Omer to provide good competition. "He has been at the club on a trial basis for the last three and a haif weeks and I have liked what I have seen. "He is a goal scorer and hungry to succeed and this is his opportunity to stake a claim for something more permanent come the end of the season. "Omer will be included in the squad for Saturday's visit to Chesterfield."
