Aldershot's new signing Craig Reid has said that the chance to play for former manager Dean Holdsworth was key to his move.

Reid played under Holdsworth at Newport and the 26-year-old striker told BBC Surrey that the Shots' manager was a major factor in sealing the transfer.

He said: "As soon as I heard of the interest from the gaffer and Aldershot I wanted to talk to them straight away.

"I'm more than happy to link up with him again.

"He gave me a chance at Newport and now he's given me another chance now.

"The gaffer knows I've got the mentality required and I've got a bit of experience of this league and what it takes to get out of it."
