Oliver Risser

Date of Birth: 17-09-1980

Place of Birth: Windhoek (NAM)

In a frantic end to the summer 2012 transfer window, midfielder Oliver Risser joined us on loan from fellow League One side Swindon Town. The deal, apparently, was with the view of making it permanent. But it didn’t happen. While his arrival gave Gary Smith some more options in midfield, his stay was a short one; returning to his parent club in early 2013 with just a handful of appearances to his name.


Oliver Risser: Before Boro’

The Namibian international brought with him extensive experience of playing in leagues around the world. After starting his career in his homeland with Ramblers, Risser moved to Germany with SpVgg EGC Wirges in 1993 and spent a large chunk of the following years in the country’s lower divisions. In addition to Germany, the midfielder spent time in a handful of Scandinavian countries, before securing a trial with Swindon Town.

The player was given a deal by Paolo Di Canio and named captain. Injury curtailed his opportunities at the County Ground, however.
