Gary Waddock is 16 games into his second tenure as Aldershot Town's manager and he has used every player in his squad at some stage in the season.

The boss' second spell has been well known for his rotation policy in order to keep his side fresh, with Waddock only naming the same team once this season.

Here's how we think Waddock's men have rated so far this season...

Jake Cole

The number of clean sheets that the Shots have accumulated may be surprising to those who know Waddock's style of play, but Cole has been a big part in keeping his goalmouth intact.

Cole has made a number of big saves throughout the course of the season to keep Aldershot Town's winning positions and their confidence in going forward is helped by knowing they have a solid man between the sticks.

Rating: 7

Nick Arnold

Another new signing who has found time limited at the Shots this season as he battles out for the left back spot with Anthony Straker.

He has been fairly solid in the games we've seen him in but I think there is still more to come from the 23-year-old who has Football League experience with Wycombe Wanderers.

Rating: 6

Anthony Straker

Again, similar to Arnold in that he has found playing time limited as a result of the battle between the pair of them for a starting place at left back.

He's been an experienced head in the games that he has played in and has picked up the man of the match award in the last couple of games, so it would seem that the defender is starting to solidify a place in Waddock's plans.

Rating: 6

Liam Bellamy

The midfielder has been a key element in Waddock's side this season and is a big miss when he has been out injured.

He seems to have struck up a solid partnership with Jake Gallagher in the middle of the park and Bellamy looks like he makes the Shots tick going forward, as well as putting himself about in defence.

Rating: 8

Instrumental: Liam Bellamy

Will Evans

Evans has struck up a central defensive partnership with Calllum Reynolds that have seen the Shots lose only once at home in the league all season - and the game they did lose saw Evans sent off.

After a shaky start he has developed into a strong and reliable defender who has also added a goal to his game, cementing his place in the heart of defence.

Rating: 7

Jack Saville

Playing time has been limited for Saville so far this season after he suffered an injury which kept him out of the squad for a number of weeks.

He has done well in the games he has played but the form of Evans and Reynolds has made it difficult for the 25-year-old, although I expect his playing time to increase as we approach the Chrstimas period.

Rating: 6

Shamir Fenelon

Fenelon started the season like a house on fire and looked unplayable at times down the right wing, where he seemed to link up with Cheye Alexander well.

He has quietened down a bit since Waddock changed to a five man midfield but he still posses that quality touch that has been the difference between a half chance and a goal this season.

Rating: 7

Charlie Walker

Since being injured in pre-season Walker has been eased back into the first team by Waddock and has bagged his first goal of the campaign.

However, it would be unfair to rate him seeing as he has had so little playing time and is only making his first steps in his recovery from injury.

Rating: N/A

Scott Rendell

The former Woking man has been thrust into action as a result of the injury to Walker, and Waddock admitted he's been used more than he would've wanted.

He has scored four goals for the Shots this season, but has looked sluggish at times, which is to expected after having such a long injury lay off and needs time to recharge the batteries as he continues his rehabilitation.

Rating: 6

On the scoresheet: Scott Rendell

Matt McClure

McClure has found himself playing in a number of roles this season, either as the forward striker, the deep lying striker or the lone man up front.

He has had a number of strikes at goal, but the goal return hasn't been what he would've wanted, although he has been getting into the positions to have the chances.

Rating: 6

Bernard Mensah

The winger has been a revelation since signing for the Shots in the summer and he currently tops the scoring charts after a rich vein of form.

Such is his form, Waddock has had to make room for him in his side by selecting five midfielders, and he has been rewarded by the confidence Mensah has on the ball and in front of goal.

Rating: 8

Iffy Allen

Like Mensah, Waddock has had to make space for Allen in his squad as a result of his fine recent from where he has dazzled down the left wing.

Defenders have struggled to get near the 22-year-old, and when they do his skill on the ball has left them on the floor as he skips away.

Rating: 8

Skills: Iffy Allen

Cheye Alexander

Alexander has been the definition of consistent this season - he has played every game this season except for the loss against Eastbourne in the FA Cup and has been solid in every time.

His surging runs forward have contributed to the solid start the Shots have had and his form have made him irreplaceable at right back.

Rating: 7

Josh Wakefield

Another summer signing, but Wakefield has found it hard to break into his preferred central midfield role as a result of the form of Bellamy and Gallagher.

However, he has been pilling up the assists this season, which, for someone who hasn't played as much as they would like, is an encouraging factor.

Rating: 6

Jake Gallagher

One of the survivors from last season, Gallagher has been instrumental in the middle of the park, although he perhaps hasn't got the rewards he deserves from going forward.

His partnership with Bellamy has been a massive part of the form that Aldershot Town have found themselves in and it seems that Gallagher is only getting better and better.

Rating: 8

Jim Kellermann

Kellermann hasn't had the best of luck so far this season, picking up an injury at Dover in August that has seen him out of action until the beginning of October.

It's hard to judge the youngster on his performances so far as a result of that injury, although an assist in the game against Solihull shows what he can do out on the wing.

Rating: N/A

Dion Conroy

The on-loan Chelsea man has found himself in and out of the side as a result of the form of others and injury - he's currently out with a cut foot sustained in training.

However, he has looked like a class act in the games he has played and despite being young and thrown into National League football, he has dealt with the physicality extremely well and looks in his own at Aldershot.

Rating: 6

Loanee: Dion Conroy

Idris Kanu

Based on his two performances in an Aldershot shirt you would probably give him a 9, however, you can't judge him on 20 minutes of football so it would be unfair to rate him so early into his Aldershot Town career.

Rating: N/A

Callum Reynolds

The skipper - despite a mistake in the last game - has been solid in the heart of defence this season and his calmness on the ball has been reassuring for his team mates.

He has been instrumental in his side's home form and is probably one of the first names on the teamsheet every weekend.

Rating: 7

Mark Smith

A summer signing from Brentford, Smith was thrust into his first start when Cole injured himself in the warm-up against Tranmere, he has proven he is also a strong pair of hands in the Shots goal.

It's important for any good team to have two strong goalkeepers, and it would seem so far this season that Smith will be challenging Cole for the number one shirt all season.
